One would think when they entered their children in a Christian school that Christian behavior would be displayed by the teachers and staff. I am mortified by the way our children were treated at CCA. The comments, the belittling,putting down children, expecting perfection and making a childs self image horrible. You call this Christianity?

CCA can't fix kids, sorry. Alot of people send their children to CCA because they are trouble makers and think that it will make them behave better. I saw alot of those kids come and go. My mother is a teacher at CCA. If you want to talk bad about the school I would suggest you don't do it so generally. If you have a problem go to someone who can do something about it instead of going on TOPIX! Wow..

Wow sportsgrad that's not true at all.
I know all those people and they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. And just because you're kid got picked on doesn't mean it's not a Christian school boys will be Boys.

Cca is pathetic. I thankfully transferred and graduated from a public school and am so grateful for it. I had a normal high school experience as opposed to sheltered, structured bullshit that would have never helped me in life. I could go on and on. There's favoritism, hypocrisy, and close-mindedness running the place. Half of the girls I would have graduated with were pregnant within months of getting out on their own in the real world. 2 of which were daughters of CCA STAFF! It doesn't make kids "better", it shelters them from learning how to make wise decisions on their own and seeing options. Plus their curriculum does NOT prepare students adequately. They see hormones and puberty and want to put a cover over it instead of encouraging students to make their choices. People want to talk so much crap about public schools and the bullying and sex and problems, but I got AWAY from that kind of drama switching to a public school. Put kids in an environment where they see options and the good and bad outcomes, don't give them one command to follow and expect them to not go crazy when they're 18 years old and moved away to college and heads home 6 months later in an ambulance from alcohol poisoning, overdosed on pills, and knocked up. This in turn forces these "angelic" "perfect" parents who have shelled out a fortune in tuition to CCA to force their kids to marry and put on a show like it wasn't a shotgun wedding. Such a foolish waste of an institution.

CCA does have the worst group of Parents for Basketball games in the area. It is kind of shocking when you watch them to be honest. The second worst is St. Mary.

If you think that being Christian means being perfect, you obviously do not know what Christianity means. Kids are kids. Even those with the best parents will mess up. Adults mess up, Christian or not. If parents are showing out, tell the principal when it happens so these people can be warned for their behavior. Academically, last year the scholarships totaled over $1 million. Those scholarships are based on grades and test scores, the same as any other school. The parents are overwhelmingly blue collar. Sending a child to CCA costs less per month then most daycares. It's not for the rich. It's for those who want a Christian educational setting. There are scholarships and aid for those who really want to go. Is it perfect? No. But what school is?

Half of the girls you would have graduated with have had kids?? I graduated from CCA and I have a breautiful daughter with a guy I dated for over 5 years. I know of 6 girls that have had babies from CCA. 2 of which were not going to CCA when they got pregnant. 1 of which was still in highschool when they had the baby. What does that matter? CCA's pregnancy rate is WAAAAY below that of a public school. Just because kids go to CCA doesn't mean they aren't going to have sex. I know of plenty of girls who went to public schools that have 2-3 kids already! It has nothing to do with the school they went to. It has everything to do with their personal decisions. I personally will not send my daughter to CCA because I want my daughter to have more opportunities to meet more people, and play in more sports. Not because I think CCA is a bad school. Its just lacking in the social department. Not many people to be friends with. I feel like I missed out because I wasn't "popular" but I still had the time of my life because I was young, had no responsibilities and didn't have to pay any bills. I would prolly have chosen to go to a public school if given the option. But I made the best of what I had. And thats the best anyone can do. It has nothing to do with public or private schools.

i agree. Just because you walk through the doors at CCA doesnt mean youre going to be a changed person. you are who you are. a school isnt going to change anyone. if you want to take advantage of the Christian enviorment, then do it. thats what the school is there for. the teachers and staff at CCA are good people. its the students that are bullies and belittling. how could anyone honestly say CCA is pathetic and fake when most of the students make fantastic grades, graduate with honors, and actually make something of themselves?? its amazing how JEALOUS parents can be because their child is not adaptive to CCA. and their child makes bad grades so they have to belittle the school. and blame the teachers for their childs faults. wow. and as far as being sheltering? the students dont live there... its just like any other school they have plenty of time for friends and whatever else. i also have a beautiful little girl and the way i was taught at CCA had absolutely nothing to do with me getting pregnant. its ignorant to think that a Chriatian school would have staff thats putting a "perfect image" on students. and of course the teachers encourage you to follow God and be the best you can be. who wouldnt want that for their child??! its amazing how much better my grades got at CCA. i failed at Lone Oak. so.. its a good school. You are who you are. it doesnt matter where you go to school, your still the same person. but CCA is not fake, pathetic, or belittling. its probably youre child. thanks

As a current student of CCA I will honestly tell you that I hate it with all of my might, it does shelter you...half the teachers are homophobic, racist, and play favorites with us like we are their pets...but as far as academically, we kick you guy's ass. I personally have a 32 on the ACT after one try and more than half of the kids in my grade are in the low thirties/ high twenties...so if you're looking for a good education, go with that, St. Mary, or Tilghman AP classes. Lone oak's a joke...I've seen your averages and it's no wonder why half of you go to WKCTC, which is great if you want to do nails or have a low-life degree. Plain and simple. Now if you want to say "boy's will be boys"...that's shit, the kids at CCA have changed dramatically in the last 3 years, we are cut-throat, and we have our fair share of drug scandals, and pre-marital sex. So take from one presently there. Don't judge a book by it's cover or some fake smile.

I went to that school. And to be perfectly honest. I wish I had put the effort into doing good. Would have academically prepared me better than the public school i was at. In some aspects of that school, It can stand to change. But the people who started it believed that what they were doing right and their success rate is alot higher than the public schools. Not many people drop out of a christian school. There are people that work there that I have HIGH respect for. They never showed favoritism. I think maybe your child or yourself is just pissed because they didnt tolerate it when you/they acted out. I know many of the students and grads alike. All of them are great people and have done very well in their life. I guess you have to cry about something so go hate on CCA. They are still an amazing school. I would give anything to walk through them doors again and go through high school there. Go hate on something else you jerks.

Why on Earth would you lower yourself to hate on CCA? Seriously. Sure, we have to wear uniforms, so does St. Mary, and we're a "private Christian school." SO WHAT?! Maybe 12 students that go to CCA are the "good" kids. But everyone else--normal, partying teenagers. And i'm sorry your child's feelings got hurt? Maybe they shouldn't set themselves up for it?.. I mean yeah, some days I really do hate CCA. But it's HIGH SCHOOL! Everyone has days when they hate their school. I have had amazing times at CCA, and I wouldn't give them up for the world. And no, we don't go around hitting people over the head with our Bibles all day. Good grief. Whoever started this forum needs to get over themselves.
Take your complaints to the board, not to a WEBSITE that can't even spell "topics" right. Lame.

I would like to say that I graduated from CCA and I made the best decision of my life going there. I made friends at the drop of a hat and made better grades than I did at Lone Oak. I also learned a lot in the Bible and had more respect for others. Almost every single person I graduated with got a scholarship somewhere and most even moved away. CCA even has higher GPA rates and higher test scores than most public schools. Whoever you are CURRENT STUDENT, stop judging the people who are going to WKCTC. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that school and just because they go there doesn't mean they are failures. At least they are going to college and doing something with their lives.

usually im not so abrupt to this sort of thing, However. I think you need to recheck your "Christian family" compass. Christians do NOT judge others. It is not our place. But thats okay. Because I believe the preacher. I will pray for you and all the others who are so judgmental. As well. You need to read the bible a lil more. You know its that book under your tv guide. haha

Hey, "Current Student" even if you do have a 32 on your ACT, that doesn't mean anything.. Yeah sure, you'll get a scholarship, but a freaking ACT score isn't going to prepare you for college. I'm a graduate from CCA, all of the current students can say that they will be prepared, but they won't be. CCA is a good school, I made many good friends there. That's about all it's good for. My first semester in college was horrible because I wasn't prepared by CCA. About the whole basketball thing, why are all of you complaining? I don't know if you've noticed or not, but they aren't the greatest basketball school. So shut up and get your head out of your butt.

Soooo, why didn't you just put your name? Oh yeah, probably because people would give you so much crap about saying that..

From the look of this. I believe the ones that are hating. Are just asking for prayers. They are to shy to ask face to face so this is their way of doing it. Its okay haters. God Still and always will love you. So will the people at CCA. Because they are better than you.
