The academic program at CPA is designed to challenge students at many levels. We focus on providing an excellent curriculum and high expectations that develop and support a biblical worldview. Our selection criteria has several components that are geared to identify students who will benefit from a CPA education. Because we are a covenant academy, at least one parent of each attending student must be a professing Christian.
