  • About our School


    Welcome to Columbus Christian Academy!  We are blessed by a rich history of partnering with parents and local evangelical churches in providing a Christ-centered education to students K-3 through graduation.

    Our families represent a breadth of approximately 50 different local churches that enjoy the common ground of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  On this firm foundation, our academic subjects lead students to explore and celebrate God’s truth in every area of life.

    Small enough to feel like family, yet large enough to offer a healthy range of programs and classes!  I invite you to explore this site, visit our campus, and experience our flourishing community for yourself.

    Mr. Don Mercer
    Head of School



    Our Mission

    Columbus Christian Academy, in partnership with parents and area evangelical churches, strives to provide a Christ-centered education of excellence to enable students to soar in truth and wisdom and to become men and women of true faith, equipped to stand strong for Christ and impact their world for eternity.

    Our Vision

    Columbus Christian Academy exists to provide a Christ-centered, Bible-based educational program aimed at spiritual growth and academic excellence. We provide an environment in which every student is cared for spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally.

    Columbus Christian Academy students, by God’s grace, will be servant-leaders who effectively live out and communicate a Biblical world view, strive to realize their academic potential, and seek to know and fulfill the unique purpose that God has planned for each of their lives.

    Our History

    Columbus Christian Academy has been blessed with a rich Christian heritage as an academically and spiritually strong school serving families in Columbus and the surrounding areas since 1978! Originally founded by Reverend Mike Stephens as a ministry of Immanuel Baptist Church, Immanuel Christian School grew under the leadership, prayer and support of the church and the many families who cherished it.

    Columbus Christian Academy (affectionately known as “CCA) has been on the current campus since 2004. With a focus on excellence, the school became the only K-3 through 12 school in Mississippi to achieve accreditations of Christian, public and private school academic associations. These prestigious accreditations include MAIS-Mississippi Association of Independent Schools, SACS-Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and ACSI-Association of Christian Schools International.

    Effective June 30, 2014 the school officially experienced a name change and came to stand on its own. Columbus Christian Academy remains an academically and spiritually strong school, continuing to serve the students and families of the Columbus area with a true Christ-centered education.

    We partner with and embrace the strong support of our families and local evangelical churches! We are continually thankful for the provision of God in the past and we look forward with expectation to all that awaits Columbus Christian Academy in the future! We invite you to partner with us as we keep Christ first and continue to pursue excellence academically, spiritually, athletically and socially for our students!
