School Profile

Overview:

Founded in 2004, our vision is to provide a classical, Christian education where parent-teacher partnership supports family time, as well as mutual accountability. In a positive peer environment, we will build future Christian leaders with a biblical worldview.

 Enrollment:

Total enrollment for the 2016-2017 School year is 178 students.  The high school has 57 students, thirteen of whom are seniors.

About our Program:

CCA’s model blends classroom and at-home learning, which most closely resembles the schedule that students will experience in their college career. The academic program prepares students to be able to competently apply for college admission and scholarships.

Curriculum:

We believe that the most effective way to create both an academically rigorous and Christ-centered school is through the method known as the classical approach to education. Essentially, the classical approach emphasizes the need to become thinkers and learners.  Every student is required to take Latin, logic and rhetoric-type courses.

Dual Enrollment, CLEP courses, and honors courses are also offered.

Service and Educational Experiences:

In preparation for college, the workplace, and real life beyond their education, we recognize the importance of being a well-rounded person who serves others and is involved in being a lighthouse to their surrounding community.  CCA’s high school program involves a variety of scheduled community service hours and educational field trips to enhance our curriculum in a real-world setting.

Class of 2016:

There were eight graduates in the Class of 2016.

5 earned 3.7+ weighted GPA
