How long has Christ Chapel Academy been around?
Christ Chapel Academy (CCA) was established in 1992, as a Preschool and Kindergarten program. In 1994 the leadership of Christ Chapel Church approved the additions of grades 1 and 2 to the school program. Each year following 1994, one grade level was added. By 1998 the academy was occupying all available classroom space. Through prayer and careful planning, CCA was able to add a school wing to the building in 2000. The longtime vision of offering a complete secondary program at CCA was fulfilled in the fall of 2006, when the first 9th grade class was added and the second wing completed in 2008. We celebrated our first graduating class in 2009.
