CAC has blessed our family tremendously! Our daughter started in their K-5 program and just recently graduated as Valedictorian. She has received many scholarships for her college of choice, LMU. Thank you CAC for giving our daughter a solid Christian and academic education.

Last year was my first year to teach in a private Christian school. The class size is much smaller than in public school, allowing for more individualized learning. Beginning everyday with Bible class gives emphasis on shared values while dignity and respect are values encouraged at every turn. Our children are in a safe and stable environment that also provides a strong academic program. Look at the data and see why CAC, like other private schools, is well above basic state standards:
"A recent recap of high school graduates showed private school students scoring
3.1 points higher on the ACT test. The same disparity is found between primary
and middle schools, according to the NCES. A comparison of mathematics tests
showed private schools scored 18 points higher for eighth graders and 8 points
higher for fourth graders. Reading had the same results, with the private schools
outscoring their public counterparts by 18 points in eighth grade and 15 points in
fourth grade" ( Lindenberger, June 26, 2019).

As a retired kindergarten teacher of 30+ years, I am very aware of the public school pressures placed on teachers and students. Two of my grandchildren attend this amazing and growing campus. One is in preK and has honestly learned most of the first half of the public school kindergarten year, but without the pressures and all while having fun. Many of the staff members hold multiple advanced degrees and are lovingly pouring into these children in an extremely impactful way. I am also very impressed with the administrative staff of the preschool and the school. They are very professional while being personal and caring.

My boys have been attending CAC for the past 3 years. The preschool staff has always gone above and beyond my expectations. They love and care for my boys as if they were their own children. Parent and teacher communication has always been top notch as well. As a parent, it is so encouraging when your children enjoy and look forward to going to school.

When it came time to enroll our son in pre-k, there was no choice better suited for us than to attend Christian Academy. Christian Academy has a strong academic program, central location, loving staff, wonderful students, and a best of all, a Christian education! These reasons are why we decided to keep him there for his further education and are so happy we have. We are grateful for the faculty and staff that make Christian Academy so awesome not just for the students, but also welcoming enough for the parents to get involved with activities too! We love CAC and are proud to be a part of this wonderful school!
