I have always expected Christopher to go far, but with the help of CCA, Christopher already has a plan. He has a plan and he’s in the 8th grade - and that’s amazing.

– Maria, Mother

CCA has made it possible for my son to get wonderful grades and scholarships to great high schools that I never in a million years thought I would be able to send him to.

– Maria, Parent

The teachers do everything in their power to be responsible for the success of not only their students, but of the school, of the class, and of the grade.

– Jason, Parent

These teachers are so upbeat. They make you feel very very welcome.

– Bobby Cline and Paula Green

I love the fact that the teachers hold her accountable for her homework, for her tests, for the syllabus. Everything is in order.

– Jason, Parent

The administration supports the things that are important. They support the teachers, they are always focused on learning and getting kids as far as they can in 1 year, 2 years, 3 years.

– Kathryn Anstaett

It’s a great school to attend. It’s a great place to work too, because everyone here has a passion and dedication.

– Michelle Williams

I'm most proud of my grades. Since I've come here, I've been on the honor roll every single time.

– Christopher, Student

The teachers care. They care about education, they make sure the kids get their work done, and they communicate with you.

– Bobby and Paula, Parents

When I visit our students who are now in high school, they have that same passion for college, even after they have left CCA.

– Michelle Williams

We’d like to thank them for the opportunity to let our son go to this school. I don’t know how they found me, but I’m glad they did.

– Bobby and Paula, Parents

For the staff, this is not just a job for them. They are really on a mission to change these childrens’ lives and impact the community.

– Jason, Parent

Fulfilling our mission is no easy task. It will require an extensive commitment of time, energy and financial resources.

– Andrew Boy

This school system is challenging. It pushes the boundaries of creativity and learning.

– Jason, Parent
