CPA Dads is a fellowship of dads that seeks to inspire, inform, and involve all fathers of CPA students in the life and mission of CPA. Through sharing exciting developments, or facing common challenges, the CPA Dads community acts as a support network for and proponent of Christ-centered fatherhood.
Arts supports the work of arts education through volunteer opportunities. These opportunities include being an organizer, communicator, painter, seamstress, or builder. Each contribution makes a visible difference in the experiences of all of our families as they participate or attend events and performances. Parent Connect Arts offers parents a way to connect with their students' interests and their own.
The CPA Prayer Ministry is a committee of Parent Connect that offers several opportunities to gather for fellowship and prayer. The practice of covering our students, faculty, families, visitors and campus in fervent, Christ-centered prayer has been a foundation of the Academy since before the doors first opened in 1985.
If you wish to be added to a monthly email reminder of prayer times and locations, or for questions or specific prayer needs, please contact either of the Parent Connect Prayer Ministry Co-Chairs: Kelli and Jason Shipman
