The mission of
In the pursuit of our mission, we hold to the following core values:
1. We embrace historic Christianity as represented in the tradition of the Protestant Reformation with the major tenets of
b. Solus Christus: We reaffirm that our salvation is accomplished by the mediatorial work of the historical Christ alone. His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our justification and reconciliation to the Father.
c. Sola Gratia: We reaffirm that in salvation we are rescued from God's wrath by his grace alone. It is the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit that brings us to Christ by releasing us from our bondage to sin and raising us from spiritual death to spiritual life.
d. Sola Fida: We reaffirm that justification is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. In justification Christ's righteousness is imputed to us as the only possible satisfaction of God's perfect justice.
e. Soli Deo Gloria: We reaffirm that because salvation is of God and has been accomplished by God, it is for God's glory and that we must glorify him always. We must live our entire lives before the face of God, under the authority of God and for his glory alone.
2. While we hold to a distinctly Reformed doctrinal tradition, we welcome and respect other Christian perspectives in the CCA community.
3. The responsibility to train and educate children belongs to parents. CCA serves "in loco parentis" to assist parents in fulfilling this biblical charge.
4. A home life that embodies biblical principles and lifelong learning provides a strong foundation for a CCA education. Active parental involvement, in age-appropriate ways, is important to a child's education. Parents are welcome in the classroom and are encouraged to participate in the overall life of the school.
5. In our common pursuit of lives that please God and honor one another, we value mutual respect, edifying speech, humble behavior, gentlemanly conduct, modest appearance, and biblical conflict resolution. We hold high expectations for the conduct and behavior of the entire school community -- students, parents, faculty and staff.
6. A warm and well-ordered atmosphere facilitates the education of our students. We continually strive for an environment that is joyful, peaceful and disciplined.
7. Gifted teachers with a passion for learning and a love for students are essential. They must model careful thinking while evaluating ideas and philosophies, both historical and contemporary, in light of God's word. Our teachers should cultivate wisdom in our students while building a solid academic foundation.

What is Classical Education?
Classical education belongs to the authoritative, traditional and enduring stream of education begun by the
Greeks and Romans, developed by the Church through the centuries and renewed by contemporary
educators. Infused with the liberal arts and sciences, classical education includes the language arts of the
trivium (grammar, logic and rhetoric) and the quantitative arts of the quadrivium (mathematics, science,
music and visual arts). Students study great works of art and literature, both old and new, by methods best
suited to their developmental stages. As participants in the great conversation of history's finest thinkers,
students acquire more than vocational skills; they prepare for their roles as informed citizens, thinking Christians
and virtuous shapers of culture.
