CCA School Profile
A Biblical View of Academics
The one distinguishing mark of a Christian school relates to that one unique reason for Christian education: to gain knowledge of the world from God’s point of view through the application of Biblical principles in every area of curriculum and school activity. CCA is committed to excellence in the area of curriculum and academics. All components of the curriculum are carefully selected and designed to fit the philosophy of biblical education and to align with academic state standards.

Young children are naturally responsive to music and enjoy all types of musical experiences. The music program offers opportunities to explore and develop singing and performance skills through music. In addition to learning about and enjoying music, children develop listening skills, coordination, self-expression, emotional responses, and confidence through performance opportunities throughout the year.
Covenant Christian Academy’s Library provides an environment where students and staff have access to a wide variety of books and materials in order to encourage a love of reading and life-long learning. Through stories, activities, and technology our program helps students recognize and utilize the many benefits that a library media center has to offer including: book browsing, book borrowing, reading for enjoyment, and searching for information. Our goal is to support, enhance, and enrich the curriculum as well as meet the needs and interests of our young students as they grow and develop along their journey of learning. Our students also participate in the Accelerated Reading program that enhances their independent reading skills.
The physical education program is scheduled for 30 minutes for four days for all elementary students.
Gross motor activities designed to develop large muscle groups dominate the physical education program. The development of physical fitness and coordination skills is also planned through activities.
Activities emphasizing running, jumping, hopping, skipping, and galloping, along with ball activities and organized games fill a class period. This plan develops individual skills to be used for organized sports. Emphasis is also placed on body awareness – how the body moves and functions.
The Elementary students use the Rosetta Stone to learn the fundamentals of the Spanish language. The program helps all types of learners to read, write, and speak Spanish. The program is offered two times during the week.
