This is accomplished through our vision of providing academic excellence within a transformative and nurturing environment.

MANY REASONS TO CHOOSE CRCA
We are a member of the ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) which connects our school with a community of Christian educators, along with tools, services, and development opportunities.
Our low teacher-student ratio enables our teachers to give focused attention to each student. Each class is able to learn quickly because of the small class size.
10 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE
CRCA began 10 years ago as a ministry of The Rock church, and was founded by Pastor J.R. Polhemus. He was inspired by Isaiah 54:13, “All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” and felt called by God to open the first Christian school in the area.
A MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL SALLY
Welcome to Castle Rock Christian Academy, CRCA. We are so excited to serve you and provide your child with a wonderful Christian educational experience. We believe that children feel more secure and we can be better educators when there is a strong partnership between home and school. Communication and parent involvement is very important for us to accomplish our school mission. Parent suggestions, comments, and participation are welcome, and accomplished through our open door policy.
GROWING AND EXPANDING
We will complete our middle school program by adding 8th grade in 2018-19. We will continue to offer an excellent academic schedule for preschool and elementary students with electives. In addition, our middle school will also give the opportunity to select online electives. We are also applying for accreditation with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International).
Our classes, taught by experienced teachers, will continue to serve students with a low student-teacher ratio. We use updated resources, Christian publishers, and will make curriculum decisions based on individual and standardized testing assessments. Our ultimate goal is to add a high school and be a preschool through 12th grade educational program. Please join us in praying for wisdom and discernment in making this dream a reality.
The fantastic teachers and staff of CRCA
Our faculty represents more than 120 collective years of teaching experience. Their focus is on the academic, spiritual, and physical growth of each student. Our low teacher-student ratio allows each teacher to evaluate the student’s needs, facilitate in one-on-one or small-group settings, and encourage each child to grow to their full potential.

Students may wear khaki or black slacks, shorts, jumpers (Kindergarten), or skirts from a local retail store. Spirit shirts and hoodies are optional and also may be purchased from Land’s End. The school also offers our free “Give and Take” closet so that parents have a source to give outgrown uniforms and take the next size for their growing children.
