About CCA

Purpose
Cascade Christian Academy (CCA) welcomes students from all religious traditions and creates a safe space for all students to learn. Seventh-day Adventist Christian beliefs and values are presented in a positive way in all classes and activities. CCA strives to maintain a high degree of excellence in its academic pursuits, emphasizing a college-preparatory program and encouraging continuing higher education for its graduates.

CCA was established to assist youth in preparing for a life of quality and service, which, through a growing relationship with Christ, will extend and expand into eternity. Reverence for God and service to humanity are encouraged. The Bible, accepted as God’s written word, has a prominent role in the educational experience provided.

CCA acknowledges God’s ownership of all human resources and is pledged to provide a Christ-centered, Bible-directed Seventh-day Adventist curriculum, which will promote the fullest development of the student’s spiritual, physical, mental, and social faculties.

Government
CCA is governed by a Board of Trustees whose members are appointed by constituent and supporting Seventh-day Adventist churches in the area. Board meetings are generally held on the 3rd Monday of each month in the CCA Spanish room at 6:30 p.m. Parents and church members may attend board meetings with permission from the Board chairperson. In order to speak to a particular agenda item, a parent or church member must submit a written request at least two weeks before the board meeting.

CCA is an accredited PreK-12 institution through AdvancED, the largest community of education professionals in the world.
