By prioritizing relationships and a culture of mutual respect, CCA has developed an environment where students can celebrate their unique strengths and recognize the strengths of others. It is also a safe place to make mistakes and learn from them. The environment that is created in our middle school weaves Christian values throughout—providing a source of strength and perspective.


As students enter Middle School they are encouraged to ask questions, take ownership of their faith, and make a lasting connection between their faith and their role in the world. It is our goal to provide an open atmosphere of faith that will serve and guide them throughout their lives—and as leaders in our greater community.

Beginning in Middle School our students begin planning and leading chapel through their involvement in their Life House Groups. This ownership not only provides a positive example of collaborative work for our students but requires them to deepen their own understanding as they teach others. Students attend a separate boys and girls chapel twice a month that addresses topics that may be sensitive to each group.

Life House Groups

CCA Life House Groups (LHG) give everyone a place and reason to belong. Similar to student council, houses have defined leadership positions that are earned with seniority and staff identified ability. These multi-grade level groups strengthen the bond among students and staff as they meet for a time of devotion, prayer, and sometimes friendly competition. 

Houses also provide opportunities for student growth through leadership, mentoring, and a platform for enriching our school. Students learn to support one another and to lend help when someone on their team is struggling, no matter their age or ability. Some of the other ways our Houses serve include:

  • Developing and presenting Middle School Chapel programs.
  • Leading a Middle School Fun Night with games, food, and devotion.
  • Participate in quarterly service projects designed and planned by their group. These projects may be on campus or out in the community. 
  • Mentoring Lower School and Primary School students through specific age-appropriate interactions.
