Welcome to Columbus!

At Columbus Christian Academy, many of our students and staff are connected to the military. Being located in the same area as the Columbus Air Force Base 14th Flying Training Wing, we feel honored to have such a unique connection with some of our nation’s Airmen and their families.

We understand the military can move you at any point in time to a new location. For that reason, students of active duty military members are welcome to apply at CCA at any time during the school year. We can also accommodate in providing adequate information about our school before you PCS to the area and schedule a tour for you to visit our campus once you arrive at your convenience.

At any point in your transition, please don’t hesitate to call us and we’d be happy to assist you along the way. We also encourage you to reach out to the CAFB School Liaison to learn more about all of your educational options.

Transition Planning

We know that PCSing to a new location can be overwhelming—such as finding a home, locating good schools for your kids, and plugging in to the community for the time that you’re here. If you’re a military family, we want to support you and make your transition as seamless as possible. While you’re stationed here, our top priority is to make you feel welcome and right at home.

One of the things we pride ourselves in at CCA is fostering a true sense of community and family among our students, teachers, and staff. On our campus, your student will appreciate the biblical worldview by which we learn and live by every day, small class sizes and one-on-one help from teachers, opportunities to be involved in a variety of sports and activities, and the welcome they'll receive from other students.

Mrs. Anna Cook, our school guidance counselor, and our leadership team will work tirelessly with military families to help them transition seamlessly into life at CCA. Feel free to contact her or our front office if you need additional help or questions answered. Below are some things to get your transition started.

We've created a helpful information packet as a hands-on resource that give you an overview of who we are.

Academic Planning

At CCA, everything we do is to better every area of a student's life—spiritually, intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically. We want to see them grow and flourish from preschool to graduation. Therefore, we're intentional about partnering with our military families during a new season of transition to make sure that happens.

Pre-K & Kindergarten

Our littlest students, from Pre-K3 to Kindergarten, are immersed in learning activities specifically designed for their age groups using Abeka curriculum. The structured phonics program teaches them to read from an early age and a spiritual foundation is laid through daily worship, Bible lessons, and Scripture memorization. Each week, they participate in chapel and special enrichment classes, including library, music, art, and physical education. Throughout the year, field trips and guest visitors are incorporated at all levels.

Elementary (Grades 1-6)

Our elementary program is made up of students in Grades 1-6. All classes participate in daily worship, a Bible lesson, and Scripture memorization. Students learn using a combination of curriculum from Abeka and Bob Jones University for core courses: Bible, reading, math, science, and English. They also participate in weekly chapel and special classes, including library, music, art, and physical education, and other enrichment activities throughout the year, such as field trips and resource speakers.

Secondary (Grades 7-8)

Our students in 7th and 8th grade learn using a combination of curriculum from Bob Jones University, including Bible, English, math or pre-algebra, life and earth sciences, world studies, American Republic, STEM, and Reading Logic. In addition to core curriculum, they participate in weekly chapel, field trips throughout the year, and they also have the chance to participate in our athletics program through a variety of sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, softball, track and field, and volleyball.

Secondary (Grades 9-12)

All high school students must earn 22 academic credits to graduate. They are offered two college preparatory tracks of study: College Prep I and Academic Honors II. 

Each year, all students must be enrolled in English, mathematics, science, social studies, and Bible—and they must take five academic classes. Seniors who have earned credits for all core requirements may substitute an on-campus elective, but must be enrolled in five or more courses. 

In addition to core curriculum, students must attend weekly chapel, participate in service projects, and can take part in academic electives, language courses, athletics, and other extracurricular activities throughout the year. Students in 11th and 12th grades also have the additional opportunity to participate in dual enrollment to gain college credit while in high school.

Student-Led Transition Team

There's no better way to integrate into a new school than to have a friend waiting on you. We've created two Transition Teams in different age groups to support our new military students. They'll start by having a peer to eat lunch with, find their classes, and meet other students.

Elementary

In Grades 1-6, we have designated a boy and girl in each grade who will be buddies for your new student as they start school on our campus.

Secondary

In Grades 7-12, we've selected a team of student leaders who have committed to walk with your new student throughout their first few weeks in a new setting.

Purple Up for the Military child

Friday, April 19, 2024

Military members and military-connected families make many sacrifices for the security and safety of our nation, which great impacts the military child as well! April is designated as the “Month of the Military Child” or “Purple Up! For Military Kids.”

To celebrate the important role military children play while their service member parents serve our country, our students, from Pre-K to Grade 12, are invited to wear purple to school.

Mental Health Services

CCA Resources

There are many things that can cause stress in a student's life, but for a military child it can be enhanced by transitioning to a new location and school. At CCA, we want to be a resource to help your student in all circumstances. If your student is struggling with mental health, family dynamics, or peer relationships, our Guidance Counselor will work to locate and connect you with the resources and support he or she needs.

Military & Family Life Counseling (MFLC)

Military families face unique challenges. To support military families, the Military and Family Life Counseling Program at Columbus AFB provides short-term, non-medical counseling services to service members and their families at no cost. Your student does not have to be a member of the Youth Center to receive these services.
