About Us

We teach students to think, live, and love based on what the Bible teaches. This is a biblical worldview. Our mission is to help our students develop a biblical worldview from science, math, and everything in between. For our students and staff, the Bible is a lamp to their feet and a light to their life’s path (Psalm 119:105) as they learn “to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (II Cor. 10:5) so that in everything, “Christ might be preeminent.” (Col. 1:18)

Our Philosophy

CCA is designed to be an educational institution with an emphasis on historical, biblical, Christian faith.  As a Christian school, we are committed to the following:

  • An individual’s relationship with God will always precede success or failure in life.

  • The primary means of knowing this one, true God is found in the pages of the Holy Scriptures, and therefore, holds final authority in issues regarding life and godliness.

  • All truth is God’s truth.  To know God is to know the truth.

Based on these principles, CCA recognizes that God has ordained that the parent is the primary educator of the child.  Therefore, the school will act in partnership with the parent in the educational process.  The foundation for successful education, fine arts, and athletics while instilling a biblical worldview.
