Columbus Christian Academy is a covenant Christian school. Acceptance to Columbus Christian Academy will require that at least one parent is actively involved in a Bible-believing church. Being a covenant school means that we are a community of parents and educators who have joined together to instill in our students the value of a strong education and a biblical worldview. We believe that our school is an extension of a Christian home where a biblical understanding of life and the world is taught.
