Capitol Christian Academy
The School That Colleges Choose

INSPIRE
CCA's experienced, administrative team has led graduates to a 100% college acceptance rate, with students earning offers of enrollment and scholarships to universities across the country.

Among universities everywhere, CCA is recognized for its emphasis on the intellectual process, for its focus on the importance of critical thinking and classroom discussions that invite multiple perspectives, and for writing that is clear, persuasive, and imaginative.

While academic prowess and leadership are essential ingredients in the success of Warrior graduates, CCA's college advising process is crucial in matching the individual to the institution and in helping students to realize their resources and understand their options.

CCA students benefit from a comprehensive college advising program that begins early in the junior year and continues until the end of the admission process. 

Early in fall of the senior year, each scholar's academic interests, strengths, and goals are evaluated to determine suitable choices. By working with CCA's college advisor, students learn about application approaches that enhance their chances for admission. 

A diverse range of colleges and universities send representatives to CCA throughout the school year to talk with prospective students. As over 90% of CCA graduates have earned honors status at the university level, CCA has quickly become well known and highly regarded by the schools listed below which have accepted and offered scholarships to CCA graduates:
