Community Christian Alternative Academy’s philosophy starts with the fundamental belief that every individual can and will learn. CCA takes students where they are and helps them to advance to high levels of achievement. In addition to the core curriculum, a complement of elective classes help to stimulate, challenge and expose students to career options. Counseling and case management services, leadership development activities, parenting services, college counseling, job training and economic development programs and an array of extracurricular activities are provided. Together they round out the CCA experience while promoting achievement, competition and team-building, raising self-esteem, and encouraging students to remain in school. Staff and students take great pride in the school environment that hosts a state-of-the art science lab and a computer lab. A community garden provides an oasis in the neighborhood while its exterior walls boast student-created murals that reflect the school and the community’s histories.
