We're a Covenant Christian School, which means we’re a community of parents and educators who have joined together to instill in our students the value of a strong Christ-centered education from a biblical worldview.
We believe our school is an extension of a loving Christian home where a biblical understanding of life and the world is taught. For this reason, acceptance to CCA requires that at least one parent be actively involved in a Bible-believing church.
The first step is to apply! We’re now accepting new student applications for the 2023-2024 school year. You can start the application process by clicking the button below.
CCA admits students of any race, color, nationality, or ethnicity to all rights, privileges, programs, services, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
By school board mandate, our mission is “to partner with parents in providing their children with a Christ-centered education.” Because of that, we require at least one parent to affirm and follow the belief and practice statements included in the application and re-enrollment documents.
In addition, students in Grades 7-12 must also affirm their support of and intent to follow the expectations, guidelines, and policies as written in the Parent-Student Handbook. This is a condition of re-enrollment.
Admission further requires that students meet the age, health, behavior, and academic ability guidelines that we set forth as well as those required by the State of Mississippi. Students are expected to achieve at or close to grade level on standardized assessments.
We admit students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs received from colleges and universities, athletic programs, and other school-administered programs.
Ultimately, our Head of School is responsible for all final admission decisions.
