We are glad you are pursuing Christian education for your child(ren) and are interested in learning more about our school. Christian Central Academy is an independent, K-12 college-preparatory school that exists to challenge young men and women to know Jesus Christ as Lord, to love others as themselves, and to grow in knowledge and in skill, in order that they may serve the world through their character and leadership.
The educational mission is based upon the belief that God has revealed Himself in many ways, most prominently in the Person and Work of Jesus Christ, the Bible, the Holy Spirit, and in the splendor of His creation. The school’s responsibility begins with a concern for each student’s relationship with God and extends through every other aspect of his or her life. This perpetuates the stated purpose of CCA as expressed in the statement that Christian Central Academy will provide an environment in which the faculty, staff, and students will grow “in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”
We know that students learn by example, exposure to ideas, having the opportunity to practice skills, being challenged to investigate, and to think creatively and imaginatively. CCA, therefore, provides role models, appropriate curriculum, practical experiences, and the intellectual and artistic challenges that students need. As an integral part of personal growth, we desire to provide the kind of program that fosters in students the ability to make wise decisions and to respond with integrity to all these challenges and opportunities. We are committed to doing all we can to create a community of love, security, and hope.
The purpose of this community is to develop college-bound students. Although CCA welcomes students who come to us with or without the school’s religious convictions, the curriculum is governed principally by the requirements of college preparation and includes extensive study of the Bible. CCA is receptive to different approaches to teaching, although we typically employ traditional methods of instruction.
We facilitate significant academic achievement and pre-professional development as measured, for example, by the acceptance of our graduates into nationally recognized colleges and universities. We want to see our students graduate with well-developed abilities to reason cogently, think creatively, problem-solve resourcefully, and express themselves effectively both orally and in written work. We also want to see them leave CCA with a longing to pursue further knowledge and skill. Above all, we hope and pray that they will have developed a love for God and their fellow man that will provide the foundation for their becoming leaders in the service of mankind.
Christian Central Academy is a unique community of faith and learning in Western New York, and we are pleased to invite your partnership with us toward these great ends.
