Philosophy of Education: The Whole Child
At CPA, we focus on the unique design of each student and provide relevant and balanced curricular offerings to cultivate growth in the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical, and creative areas of life.
The Process of Transformation through Education
The foundation of this transformation process is love for God and for each other. Our education process is cyclical in nature. At CPA, we cultivate a life-giving atmosphere for all. This atmosphere begins with pursuant love, authentic relationship, and reciprocal trust. As a life-giving atmosphere is cultivated, it facilitates shared experiences essential to the growth and maturity of faithful servants of God. Each experience is an opportunity for discovery and rediscovery of who God is and how to engage with Him in all things.
As students share an array of critical experiences, CPA instructors seek to prepare students to be culture shapers by teaching 21st century skills. While we focus on our processes, we also trust the Holy Spirit to ultimately refine our students’ character in Christ, and develop traits such as courage, humility, integrity, and empathy.
Service is an integral part of everyday learning at the Academy. Service learning, is a teaching method that combines meaningful service to the community with curriculum-based learning.
