Christian Central Academy is governed by a Board of Directors who serve without compensation. The Directors are elected for terms of three years and until their successors are elected and qualified. The terms of the incumbent Directors expire on a staggered basis over the next three years. No Director is permitted to serve more than six consecutive years, unless such Director has filled a vacated seat, in which case he or she may serve for up to seven consecutive years. Each Director must agree to the philosophy and concept of Christian education established by CCA and he or she must manifest characteristics of Christ and be of good reputation in the community.
