About Us

Cooper City Christian Academy strives to provide a Christ-Centered environment of academic excellence, where faculty and staff work with families to develop students who will know and serve the Lord Jesus Christ with all their hearts, souls, minds and strength.

Established in 2002, CCCA is a church-operated, accredited, private Christian school with 130+ students in grades K-12. Academically, our school is built upon a strong phonics-based reading program and a back-to-the-basics approach to learning in the elementary grades with a focus on reading, writing, and arithmetic. Middle School and High School courses aim toward college preparedness with opportunities for students to enroll in dual enrollment courses in college. Our recent achievement testing (SAT10) placed CCCA students approximately one full year ahead of the national average compared to all U.S schools. A Biblical world view permeates our program with born-again teachers, quality Christian curricula (Abeka, BJU, Ignitia), daily Bible classes, and weekly Chapel services. A full academic program (language arts, math, history, science, health, physical education, computer, electives, etc.), after-school clubs, service opportunities, and special events create a full, rich, and enjoyable school experience for our diverse, South Florida school family.
