“A Christ-Centered School Yielding Academic Excellence”
JCCA is ordained and called by God to provide an
opportunity for Christian families to have their children educated in an environment that supports and reinforces the Biblical
truths and values that they teach in their homes. In addition, the love and power of Christ is integrated into the curriculum
and modeled by the staff so that each child has the opportunity to recognize and accept the gift of salvation from Jesus our
Lord. This atmosphere allows children the freedom to question the common worldview and establish a foundation of truth and
faith that will allow them to live in the world without being of the world. Within this Christ-centered atmosphere,
JCCA insists upon an academic curriculum that will help each child to meet and exceed educational achievement standards for
their grade and age. Spirit-led faculty is the primary means through which the Lord has accomplished this portion of the mission.
The fundamentals of mathematics, language, and Bible are emphasized. Specialty classes, field trips, creative assignments,
and critical thought all add to the formation of a complete educational experience. JCCA leadership and staff are constantly
seeking the ways and means to improve the quality and delivery of the academics so that each child may maximize their academic
The Father is no respecter of persons and holds Christians accountable to the same standard. Justice ensures application
of God’s truth and love evenly to his creation regardless of race, creed, origin, or even religion. Justice includes
the integrity to acknowledge one’s own wrongdoings, adherence to the rule of God given authority, and the strength to
stand for Truth when it is opposed.
Our Core Values
Love is the key to everything and the fulfillment of all law since it is God’s greatest commandment. Modeling
the Biblical definition of love for children and instilling it into their hearts will prepare them for success in any avenue
The Spirit-led gift to properly use knowledge is more important
than the knowledge itself and is available from God to those who ask Him.
Esteeming others more highly than oneself and having the humility to seek
opportunities to serve is one of the most visible reflections of Christ himself.
Practicing “true religion” as described in James requires
the development of a heart of compassion for the poor, weak, downtrodden, and unfortunate. Teaching, praying for, and developing
this spiritual gift is of great importance.
