High School

Grades 9 to 12

Our high school instills life learning in a challenging, individualized, and holistic environment.
Students are challenged to develop and deepen their existing interests as well as venture into new areas. Students are encouraged and supported to reach their full academic potential as well as becoming the person they are in Christ.

Customized class scheduling allows students to develop an individual learning plan to reach their goals. Our high school course catalog is broad and deep, including over 20 Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses, so we can meet the needs of all our students.

While academics encapsulate the core of their learning, we encourage students to be well-rounded. There are many opportunities to lead and participate in clubs that span a wide variety of subjects. Sports teams, Bible study, robotics, fine arts, drama, and our award-winning chorale are some of the avenues available to expand their education beyond the classroom. Field trips, college tours and internship opportunities richly deepen their knowledge with real-life experiences. Students learn how their interests and skills eventually transfer into majors in college, internships during the summer, and skills in the marketplace.

College counseling, which lays the groundwork for each student’s academic program, begins as soon as students enroll and is ongoing. We guide students as they consider colleges, prepare applications, and complete college essays, making sure they don’t miss important deadlines.

CCA students aren’t just prepared for college, they are prepared for life.

CCA strives for the best education for our students by using the best Christian and secular curriculum and resources available.  Our curriculum is research-based and is carefully selected by our Academic Director.  Experienced staff and faculty attentively review both the curriculum as well as the background of each curriculum creator.  Much of the content used at CCA is created by the top educators, professionals, and researchers in their fields.

Students have a wide variety of courses to choose from when creating their individualized academic plan.  Students meet with an academic advisor to map out their educational goals.  As students progress through their plans, they can take classes that delve deeper into their interests.  Courses taught by experienced faculty in specific areas such as Anatomy, AP Calculus, Chamber Choir, AP History, Mandarin Honors, AP Physics, Programming, AP Studio Art, and much more enable them to achieve these goals.

College counseling is tailored to each individual student to capture their personal dreams, talents, ambitions, and abilities. Students first learn to understand who they are and what they can become, then research which colleges, majors, and future studies or work will fulfill their potential and calling in life. Advisors then help the student with their applications, financial aide information, interviews, and all aspects of college placement and admissions.
