Teaching the World

One Student at a Time

I should have noticed during the enrollment process, but somehow it escaped me until I peeked in on our 2nd/3rd grade history class the first day of school. They were learning how to find different countries on the map.  "Let's find Ghana, where [student's name] lived," the teacher said.  A moment later, she continued, "Okay, let's now find South Korea, where [student's name] is from."  Moments later, the students were finding Ethiopia.  For the first time, I realized that we had five countries represented in the class of nine children.  

One of the things I love most about Community Christian Academy is the ethnic and economic diversity that the Lord has brought to the school. Often, I hear Christians who have not experienced a school like CCA express concern that their children may grow up in a "bubble" and not be prepared to interact in a diverserve community as adults if they place them in a Christian school.  While CCA does promote a healthy spiritual as well as academic environment, we welcome the world every day that our door is open.  We encourage any parent interested in knowing more about CCA to give us a call at 434-326-1145.

60 for 60

Investing in Our Children

Did you know that you can give a donation that will ultimately cost you only $175 but will provide $1,000 in scholarship aid for a student in need?  

Sixty percent of the students at Community Christian Academy need scholarship aid to attend school.  CCA has partnered with New Covenant Schools Foundation to provide scholarship funding through Virginia's Education Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit program.  With this program, a donor gives a $500 donation this calendar year, and receives a $325 tax credit on their 2016 state taxes (net cost to the donor = $175).  New Covenant Schools Foundation will match the donation and give CCA $1,000.00 in scholarship aid.  With only 60 donors giving $500 each, we can fully fund the 60% of our students who need scholarships to attend school this year.

Will you be one of our donors to provide educational opportunity for our students?  If so, please contact Kimberly Moore, Executive Director, at 434-326-1145 or at kmoore@cca-va.org for more details on how to participate.
