Academy Profile:

Champions Christian Academy is a Pre-K4 to 12th grade Christ-centered academy. We seek acceptance from students of any religious or cultural background. We are an outreach ministry of the non-profit Christ Centered Homes, Inc. in Atlanta, Texas.

Academy Focus:

Our focus is for all students to receive a quality academic education encapsuled in a thorough knowledge of our Biblical heritage. The goal of the school’s administration, faculty and staff is to guide each student into an awareness of his or her individual worth and an appreciation of the worth and individuality of others. CCA believes that every student deserves the opportunity to develop to his or her fullest potential in all areas of learning and at a rate suited to individual ability. The school accepts students of various racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds. This emphasis is reflected in the curriculum and in our admissions policies. Scripture clearly teaches that parents are responsible for their children’s education and discipline. It is the belief at CCA that the school is not a substitute for, but an extension of the Christian home. Our faculty teaches students to accept accountability for their actions and attitudes, both on campus and in the community. Training includes helping students become loyal citizens of our country and to appreciate both their rights and their responsibilities as active participants in this complex society. These goals are rooted in the belief that each person is made in the image of God and therefore, worthy of dignity and respect.

CCA’s staff consists of certified and/or college educated individuals who have answered God’s call to be teachers in a Christian environment.
