About Our School
IN THE BEGINNING…
Throughout it’s 150-plus years as a member of the Westerville community, Central College Church has placed a unique emphasis upon Christian Education. Central College Christian Academy (CCCA) was chartered by the State of Ohio Department of Education and opened in 1998, with one class of 20 kindergartners in a small, older building next door to Central College Church.
The continued commitment and support of Central College Church to high-quality education in a nurturing, Christian environment is quite evident – from CCCA’s new state-of-the-art facility, opened in 2003, to the outstanding teaching staff, to the current K – 6 student body with a curriculum chartered by the state of Ohio. CCCA offers our students the best of both worlds: the fresh, creative approach of a relatively young private school, combined with a centuries-old heritage of educational excellence in the Christian tradition.
We believe that young children can thrive in a smaller school environment. Our maximum class size is 22 students per one teacher. In our kindergarten classrooms our students to teacher ratio is 11 to 1. As a result, many students receive more individual attention.
Our school uniform policy serves as another tool in fostering the academic, character-building and self-respecting environment we believe God wants for our children. The approved school uniforms are the required dress for every student attending CCCA. Uniform attire may be purchased from any of the 3 approved, local vendors. One of these vendors makes it especially convenient for our families by accepting phone and fax orders (and the clothes are delivered directly to the school for pick-up) and even coming on site annually for fittings and taking orders. At least monthly, we celebrate Spirit Day and other special events where students may wear CCCA-logoed sweatshirts or t-shirts.
Much more detail can be found in our school handbook and other materials available in our information folder and by request.
Parents should contact their District of residence to schedule transportation services. If you live within 30 minutes of CCCA you may be eligible to receive transportation services unless the District deems transportation impractical. In such cases, compensation may be provided by the District in lieu of transporting your child. Many students are transported to/from school by individual parents or car pools. Due to the major traffic on Sunbury Rd, we ask that no student walk to school, regardless of how close one lives to our school.
