MissionChrist Presbyterian Academy, an educational ministry of Christ Presbyterian Church, assists Christian families in helping students come to know God, evaluate all knowledge and all life by His truth, and live transformed by His truth for His glory.
Christ Presbyterian Academy believes that parents have primary responsibility for educating and nurturing their children. At the same time, we recognize the triangular “partnership” of home, church and school, working together in the inculcation of a Biblical world and life view in the lives of its students.
The Academy does not seek to supplant home and church, but rather to complement these two institutions in the fulfillment of their God-ordained roles. Applying these principles means educating the whole child. This is accomplished by providing a setting that promotes growth in the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical spheres of the child’s life. CPA seeks to bring the child to God through Christ, and fosters subsequent growth in that relationship. At the same time, the Academy endeavors to give each child the tools for living a productive life in contemporary society.
Christ Presbyterian Academy was established in 1985 as a ministry of Christ Presbyterian Church for the education of the covenant children of Christ Presbyterian Church and those of other believers who would desire to educate them at the Academy.It began with a faculty and staff of 11 and with 124 children in grades K-6. The Academy doubled in size the next year and has experienced continued growth, adding grades and classes to develop a comprehensive preschool-12 program. Current enrollment is just over 1,200, with a faculty and staff of over 200.
