Upcoming Event…Mark your calendar now:  Friday, March 24th will be the CCA Faculty/Coaches vs. A Teams Basketball Games.  Games will be played in our CCA gym.  Concessions will not be provided.  There will be a free will donation at the door to support Sagrada Scholarship Bible Camp.  Women Faculty/Coaches vs. Girls’ A Team will be at 6pm and Men Faculty/Coaches vs. Boys’ A Team will be at 7pm.  Join CCA for a night of fun!


We need your help in finding some positions for CCA for next school year.

Starting next school year the 5th and 6th grades will have 2 main teachers and will be moving over to the annex.  One teacher will focus on English, Bible, and History and the other teacher will focus on Math, Bible, and Science.  When the English/history teacher is teaching the 5th grade, the math/science teacher will be teaching the 6th grade in the morning and vice versa for the afternoon.  So, help us find a full-time Christian teacher that can teach Math, Bible, and Science for next year to 5th and 6th grade CCA students.  We are also looking for some help for Mr. Ballard.  We are not clear which direction the Lord is leading, so we are looking at 2 different possibilities: 1) Part-time assistant principal that would focus on curriculum and instruction (this individual needs to have studied education curriculum and instruction in college or graduate school).  This is a paid position and would require @10 hours per week during the school day. 2) The other possibility is a part-time maintenance person.  This person needs to be handy and creative at repairing all types of needs around the school.  This position can be after the noon hour of the day or afterschool.  This is a paid position and would require 5-10 hours per week and some during the summer.  We are also looking for 1 or 2 custodians to clean the entire facility for next school year.  This is a 25 hour per week paid position working after school during the school year.  It could be combined with the maintenance position to create a larger salary.
