Central Christian Academy Reviews
A safe, highly academic, and truly Christian environment. Students get individual attention.
My child's school is a unique experience.
I have our child in a private school that promotes everything the secular schools will not allow. Love is showed throughout the staff towards one another and their students. They practice and teach the children all the fruits of the spirit alongside their educational studies. Their is not just an importance on the students education, but also on their spiritual education. It is a blessing to have a school staff help develop Godly character into my child. Our school is a place where church, home and school work together. It will be a sad time when our child graduates from elementary. However, we will have great memories and the ability to share those stories to allow someone else to attend and be blessed. OUr child is an honor roll student, but that will not help him get into heaven.
Both my kids have attended this school for two years, the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school year. The school has been able to correct a lot of problems it has had in recent years. There is a new administrator and most of the teachers have all been there for a couple of years. The did some re-organizing and this past year had excellent scores. The finances have all been simplified and we are very happy with the school.
I had both my children at CCA last year a kindergartner and a 8th grader. The school is very unorganized, academically and financially. The turnover rate for teachers is very high. The school also makes major changes with out informing the parents. For example, in the 2008/2009 school year they changed the whole curriculumn and chose not to even discuss the changes with the parents. As far as finances I strongly feel that they mismanage funds. Not only do they mismanage funds but they also add ALOT of miscellaneous charges to the tuition charges with out discussing it with the parents. They just add the charges and expect you to pay them.
