About our Vision and Mission

These are exciting times at Christ's Church Academy.  We have cast a vision designed to answer God's call to excellence for everyone at CCA.  This calling sets us apart, as we continuously work to create and sustain relationships, personalize and individualize instruction, and focus on discipleship, professional development, and academic improvement for the glory of God.

The mission of Christ's Church Academy is to make disciples (Matt. 28:19), more disciples (Mark 16:15), and better disciples (Acts 2:42), through academic, athletic, and artistic excellence.

Our desire at CCA is build relationships and foster a family atmosphere by offering a safe, nurturing environment where students realize their God-given potential and learn to impact the world.

-Dr. Madison Nichols, Head of School

About our Educational Philosophy

If a Christ-centered educational experience is important to you, you'll be happy to know that Christ's Church Academy is more than a name, and Christ is first in our name for a reason.  CCA's educational philosophy is built on the foundation of Christianity, and is shared with students daily in every grade. Every faculty member stresses fundamental teachings of the Bible and the development of Christ-like attributes, and our administration has incorporated many spiritually-grounded activities for students throughout the school year.  There never has been and will never be a Christ's Church Academy without Christ.

About our History

Christ's Church Academy, originally Mandarin Christian School, began its inaugural year August 29, 1995, enrolling kindergarten through fifth grades. Sixth, seventh, and eighth grades were added in 1996, 1997 and 1998, respectively. High school began in 2005 and was completed with the addition of twelfth grade in 2007. Christ's Church Academy has realized a long-term goal by establishing a school to serve the Mandarin community, and continues to expand its reach to the entire First Coast.
