Shauna Seymore, parent
After having been a teacher for a while, I can assure parents that the seeds you plant for children when they are 16 come to fruition when they are 30, 40, and 50.
Jennifer Christensen, faculty
CPA has given our children a wonderful place to build on the foundation of their faith. The faculty and staff are passionate, professional, and personable.
Rodney and Janice Burt, parents
CPA teachers embrace excellence in all that they do, but what brings us back every year is the relational depth in this community.
Kelli Shipman, parent
Teaching history allows me critical conversations with students on human behavior, plight, and triumph, a deeper examination of life, all through the lens of the Gospel.
Dan Carpenter, faculty
Teachers encourage students to be strong in their faith, to serve one another and others, and to have passion in their work.
Tiffany Benken, parent
Our relationship with faculty and staff is truly a partnership, resulting in ongoing growth in my own relationship with Christ, not only for my children, but for me as a parent.
Joda Foster, parent
Teachers often have more quality time with students than parents. There is a partnership between home, church, and school that exists to reflect the Gospel in every interaction.
David Filson, Pastor of Theology and Discipleship
The community here pours into the lives of my kids, pushing them, rooting for them. It gives me so much assurance and support as a parent.
Wheat Teller, parent
Seeing students grapple with complex ideas is when I feel most positioned to stretch them. The growth process takes place in dozens of small moments every day.
Beth Graham, faculty
Having the flexibility to ask staff to stop and pray with and for my son has made ALL the difference between conventional schools and CPA.
Lynette Brinson, parent
CPA is intentionally geared towards faith, academics, and service. Here, our children are learning to be responsible and compassionate members of the community.
