The mission of Carter Christian Academy is to provide a secure, Christ-Centered environment in which students will have the opportunity to acquire a personal knowledge of God, develop Christian character, and achieve academic excellence.
The vision of Carter Christian Academy is to produce student leaders who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, demonstrate Godly character and stewardship, and impact their world through Biblical thought and action in obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). Through Christ-centered academic excellence that is an extension of the Christian home, CCA is devoted to instilling a lifelong enthusiasm for learning, leading and serving.
CCA is accredited through ACSI (Association of Christian Schools, International).
