Christ Presbyterian Academy


An Early Love of Learning

Preschool is where learning begins at CPA. The Preschool program seeks to immerse children in an environment that is purposeful and productive and encourages them to take spiritual, social, and physical steps that build confidence and character in keeping with the academic strands that run throughout the Academy. 

As part of the program, children learn through technology, music, foreign language, science, visual art, and performing arts. These enrichment offerings work together with our core curriculum to develop the whole child. Faculty and staff strives to encourage and nurture each individual as they develop their relationship with God and, in turn, begin to discover and develop confidence in their God-given gifts.

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in CPA Preschool! I am thrilled you would choose to explore our program! This is a loving community filled with learning, laughter, and exciting new things every day. We live out the mission of Christ Presbyterian Academy by partnering with you to best teach and care for your child.

As you walk through our doors, you will experience joy-filled classrooms where children will explore and create using hands-on activities for learning. The teachers instill confidence in each child, as they passionately teach them and love them.

These early years are formative in your child’s development and growth, and we take that life stage very seriously. The children will feel like they are coming to play with friends each day, but their schedule is filled with intentional learning objectives and developmental goals. One of my favorite things about our preschool program at CPA is the focus and teaching about our Creator.

We continue pointing the children back to God’s Word and worship Him for all that He is to us! I hope you enjoy learning about Christ Presbyterian Academy and that you will consider visiting this special place to experience the incredible atmosphere and people first hand! Please read on for more specific information on each classroom and all that we have to offer!
