Early Childhood

These guides are helpful for planning your and your child’s school year.

Program Introduction

Central Christian Academy (CCA) welcomes you and your family. The day your child enters our Early Childhood Program, we believe the parent and the school become partners in the responsibility for his/her mental, social, physical, and emotional development. It is important to us that your child’s first school experience be positive and rewarding. We strive to help each child develop a healthy self-concept through “active learning” in a peer group setting. In addition, each child is nurtured to improve his/her social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual/cognitive, and physical capabilities. We are glad you have chosen Central Christian Academy, and look forward to the partnership during your child’s time with us.

Central Christian Academy is a private, Indiana licensed K-3 and K-4 preschool program.  We are a Christ-centered, faith-based preschool.  We welcome all children and their families, regardless of your faith or church attendance.
