"I honestly never thought a school and its staff could bring such light and joy into our home at such a level as CCA does. I am continually blown away at the growth I see in my kids through God's use of the CCA teachers. The growth is on all levels; social, emotional, spiritual, academic and psychological. CCA is one of the best lifetime investments we are making."
