Parent, Teacher, Staff, Board, Alumni LINK


Dear parents, students, alumni, Board members, faculty, and staff (stakeholders),

Throughout the life of an organization significant events and initiatives mark the passing of time. In 2011, Christian Central Academy pursued and received status as an accredited school from the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS). For more than 130 years the Middle States Association has been a worldwide leader in accreditation and continuous school improvement. Middle States accreditation serves as an independent validation of the good work we do. More than a stamp of approval, the reaccreditation process helps us focus our attention on continuous growth and improvement. While we have enjoyed the recognition of being a fully accredited school over the last thirteen years, we are now once again preparing for a new accreditation cycle.

The process by which Christian Central Academy will once again pursue accreditation provides an opportunity to evaluate all aspects of our school’s structure and function. We will discuss our school’s foundational documents, such as our Mission Statement, Statement of Faith, Philosophy of Christian Education, and Profile of a Graduate. We will also evaluate how our school is striving for excellence in the areas of Governance, Organizational Structure, Policy and Procedures related to Teaching and Learning, Student Well-Being, Provision and Management of our Resources, and Strategic Planning for our future. While the school Administration, Board of Directors, and committees will be working through this process, there is a significant role for you, as a stakeholder, to play.

The reaccreditation process begins with conducting a self-study and requires input from school leaders, parents, students, alumni, faculty, and staff. We encourage transparency with our school community, and welcome this opportunity for engagement from all of our stakeholders. It is our need and desire to have a record number of constituents, across the entire school community, provide input and feedback, so that we can continue to pursue excellence in education, and be worthy of both the names Christian and Education. Please click on the following link to answer a few questions. The survey is relatively short and should only take 5-10 minutes to provide your valuable insights and feedback. We need your participation and response no later than 3pm on next Wednesday, January 10th, so please click the following link to complete the survey:

Following your participation and various other parts of the required self-study, a team of volunteer educators from other Middle States member schools will visit CCA to conduct a peer review. The visiting team makes its recommendation to the Middle States Association Commissions, which votes on CCA’s accreditation. CCA’s Administration would like to thank the various participants in each of our committees and subcommittees. Please accept our appreciation for your participation in this survey.

Thank you and blessings to you,
