CPA Commencement celebrates graduates

CPA held Commencement on Sunday, May 27, to celebrate the Class of 2018 and graduate 103 seniors.
The ceremony hosted nearly 600 guests and featured an opening prayer from Head CPC Pastor Scott Sauls, presentation of special senior awards, addresses from Valedictorian Ryan Charles and Salutatorian Katherine Betts, a special arrangement of Christ Alone from the senior members of Vision, and the alma mater led by singer/songwriter (and CPA parent who wrote the song) Steven Curtis Chapman. 

Concluded with a benediction from Headmaster Emeritus Richard Anderson, the ceremony honored the Class of 2018 for their time at the Academy and charged them with the mission to live transformed as sons and daughters of Christ heading into a world unknown.
