In 1992, a very young Academy was poised to graduate its first class of eight students. Following the graduation of that class, the school would be eligible for TSSAA play. Determined to begin an athletic program before TSSAA eligibility began, the school joined the Tennessee Association of Non-Public Academic Schools (TANAS), and in 1992, a young boys basketball team claimed the TANAS Boys Basketball State Championship.
It was the first championship title in the history of the school. On Friday, February 3, celebrating their 25-year reunion, members of that team and the sole senior cheerleader from the class of 1992 were recognized and honored with a State Championship banner, joining the two TSSAA Boys Basketball State Championship banners earned in 2013 and 2014.
According to Athletic Director and 1992 Boys Basketball Head Coach Mike Ellson, “These are the true pioneers of CPA athletics. We had former team members traveling from all over the country to attend this ceremony. It speaks to the impact CPA had and continues to have on these lives. It’s a big deal to realize how much God has done through this school.”
