Our focus is for all students to receive a quality academic education encapsulated 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.

Statement of Faith
Champions Christian Academy exists to provide every student an exemplary education in a Christ-centered environment, preparing them to pursue higher education, while promoting service to others in the name of Christ.
- We believe and teach that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, and is the divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.
- We teach that the Godhead exists eternally in 3 persons—Father, Son, and Holy
- We teach that God is the absolute and sole creator of the universe, and that creation was by divine decree, not through evolutionary process.
- We teach that Jesus Christ in the flesh was born God and Man; that He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was bodily raised from the dead on the third day to bring us victory. Later, He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for all He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth.
- We teach that in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for our sin. Salvation is a free gift received in Faith.
- We teach that it is important that each follower of Jesus Christ should be engaged in missional purposes in their community.
- We teach that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
