Academic excellence at Johnson County Christian Academy finds
its roots in the very heart of Christianity. Teachers challenge students to think deeply about diverse contemporary and ageless
topics. Students investigate the nature of Truth and its application to daily living. They sharpen each other as they study
and question ideas, concepts and theories. An academic program focused on critical thinking and problem-solving skills
challenge students to form a strong belief system founded from a biblical perspective and grounded in Christ.
education at JCCA means accepting learners as God created them mentally, spiritually, physically and academically. It means
teaching students at their individual level of understanding and providing instruction at a pace at which they can succeed
to their highest potential.
A child's formative years are critical when it comes to forming their world-view.
JCCA provides an environment that is safe and nurturing combined with an academic program that is comprehensive and challenging.
The product of JCCA’s philosophy of education is a student who grows in Christ-like character and becomes a lifetime
