On-Site Administrator, Kindergarten
What I love most about CCA is that the class sizes are small. This makes it easier for teachers to really know their students and help them in areas they struggle and push them in areas they excel. The favorite part of my day is first thing in the morning when the day is new and fresh and the anticipation of the amazing things that could happen today! I love books!!! I don't want to hurt other books' feelings by choosing just one!

Teaching at CCA affords teacher and curriculum accountability, encourages like mindedness among staff, and insures doctrinal safety. Did I mention that the class size encourages learning, joy, and a personal touch for students? And did I say we all laugh a lot? Teaching at CCA is the greatest gig of my many years. My favorite part of the day is Bible class, and every time I see an “ah-ha” moment in any subject. My favorite book-that’s a hard one. Being married to a pastor, and having taught for quite a number of years, I’d have to pick favorites from categories: Children’s Humor: “Hank the Cow dog” or “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” Dialectic level motivation: “Carry on, Mr. Bowditch “ Theology: (After the Bible): “Delighting in the Trinity”

I am looking forward to creating relationships with my peers as well as my students, refining my teaching skills, and learning more about the classical model.
Mrs. Krystin Sutherland
I am looking forward to building community within the school and being with other Christians and like-minded families. I am also looking forward to planning creative lessons to bring learning to life.

Welcome Mrs. Theis!
Mrs. Abby Vollmer
I love the students and staff of CCA. I especially like how we encourage each other to glorify God and enjoy Him forever! My favorite part of the day is when I get to work one on one with students or when students are collaborating with each other. I love to see students encourage and support one another. Two of my favorite books are "This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald and "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck.
Mrs. Grace Kvanvig
UPPER SCHOOL SCIENCE, MATH, LOGIC
My favorite thing about CCA is the pervasiveness of God's Word throughout the day. I love encouraging my students to dig into Scripture in science, logic, and math classes, and I see how it grounds them (and me!) to encounter truth in a variety of ways. It's been a blessing to teach with and learn from the staff at CCA; it's truly a family. My favorite book is The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton, and I reread it every year!
Mrs. Olivia Langley
UPPER SCHOOL Latin, Writing & Rhetoric
It is very hard to choose just one thing I like about CCA, but I love the "light-bulb" moments in the classroom when students "get it" and want to explore more and ask more questions. I love being a lead learner. My favorite part of my day is standing in front of my Latin class and seeing the effects of training another generation of young minds to see the world through a language that shaped Western culture. My favorite book is "Emma" by Jane Austen. Emma Woodhouse is a witty, inquisitive, refreshingly-imperfect heroine, and I see much of myself in her.
Mrs. Christy Freeman
Grammar School Music & Chapel Worship Leader
A fresh new year! I love the energy that comes at the start of each year, new faces, and the excitement of the returning students. Also, seeing and hearing the students learn and grow in their love for music.
Mr. Mark Pelham
Upper School Math
I am excited to help students understand and appreciate more about God's creation. I want them to see more of who God is by studying what He has made. I'm looking forward to seeing God transform each student in wisdom, stature and favor with God and others.
