Champion Truth | Transform Lives

Christ Church Academy is
our parish school.

Currently, we serve more than 100 students in our Preschool and Lower School classes.
Kindergarten through Second Grade students attend theology, music, and art classes as well as weekly Chapel services led by the school Chaplain, Fr. Hunter Van Wagenen.

The CCA Mission:

We seek to educate students to become champions of truth, living transformed lives.

Our Vision:

As a parochial Christian lower elementary school, Christ Church Academy enacts and furthers the mission of Christ Church Vero Beach to make disciples who follow Jesus Christ with an emphasis on faith, scholarship, service, and civics.

Every student is a valued member of our School Family.
We design learning units and themed activities to instill a foundation of Biblical truths and values and integrate academic, social, and cultural learning concepts in fun and creative ways.


Preschool, K-Readiness, and Lower School

The Lower School classes include Kindergarten through 3rd grades, expanding one higher grade each year through 8th grade.

CCA Core Values

At Church Academy, we recognize the value and worth of each student as a child of God and encourage them to be mindful of God’s presence in their lives as they grow and become independent learners who develop a lifelong love of learning.

We teach each student how to integrate and apply Biblical values to all areas of study and life.

Christ Church Academy Kids

Academic and social skills are developed through exploration, problem solving, and creativity. Our curriculum is guided by and exceeds the Florida State Standards and attends to the whole child. Additionally, we incorporate lessons and experiences for spiritual, social/emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
