General School Mission

"Christian Collegiate Academy is an institution dedicated to developing growth and maturation of the total child: spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, and physically. We believe, teach and therefore attempt to educate young people that human knowledge allows us to reach our true potential only when that knowledge is applied to life in light of the truth of God's Word.

CCA is not just another private school. It is first and foremost, a CHRISTIAN school. One of the most important purposes for the existence of CCA is to serve Christian families with a school that is as "Christian" as possible in terms of curriculum, staff, student fellowship, and Biblical instruction.

We exist as an extension of the Christian home to provide an environment more closely sharing the values of conservative, fundamental Christian parents than would be true in other non-Christian schools, public or private. The second most important reason for our existence is, without apology, to be a tool of evangelism and present the Gospel of Christ to every student in the sincere hope that he will be saved, that is, trust Christ as Savior, and grow in the Lord as a disciple of His. We believe CCA has proven itself to have an excellent academic program, a warm, family-type atmosphere where kids get much personal attention and love, and an environment which is essentially well-disciplined and free of drugs and many other harmful influences.

With Enrollment numbers exceeding 300, Christian Collegiate Academy's administration recognizes the need to accommodate the growing number of students whose parents recognize the importance of a faith-based education balanced with an emphasis on life and career sustaining information and values.

To meet those needs CCA has embarked on an ambitious capitalization campaign funded through the generosity of committed Christian men and women in the private and public communities.
