CCA Academic Counseling Department Mission & Verse

Through the rigorous academics upheld at CCA, graduating students are able to be equipped in their preparation as they seek and respond to God’s direction for their lives.

"…They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.

Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit."

A standardized test is a test that is given to students in a very consistent manner; meaning that the questions on the test are all the same, the time given to each student is the same, and the way in which the test is scored is the same for all students. We provided some resources for families that want to give their students some assistance.
