Carlisle Christian Academy is a fully accredited, non-public, non-denominational Christian, K-12 school located in Carlisle, PA. But what we now call CCA began as Bethel Assembly of God Day Care and Nursery School in the year 1975. Four years later a new wing of classrooms and a multipurpose gymnasium were added to the church building and we were ready for expansion. In 1981, the Bethel Christian Academy was established for school aged children.
For 14 years the child care and K-8 schooling needs of local christian families could be met on the campus of Bethel Christian Academy and Bethel Nursery School and Day Care. Over time, the school added a summer camp, which would act as an on ramp giving parents a glimpse of our offerings. In 2003 the school again broadened its scope when Bethel Christian Academy expanded to include high school classes. In the subsequent school years since 2003-2004, Bethel Christian Academy grew to include a K-12 program.
Most recently, during the summer of 2006, Bethel Christian Academy became fully independent of Bethel Assembly of God and Bethel Nursery School and Day Care, changing its name to Carlisle Christian Academy, as we call it today. With the Academy’s first ever twelfth grade class graduating in June of 2007, Carlisle Christian Academy is fully equipped to do the work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through providing sound Christian education to the children of South Central Pennsylvania and year round care through its summer programming.
Since the school’s inception in 1981, Carlisle Christian Academy (CCA) has enjoyed growth. CCA has expanded its offerings as over the years we have added Drama and Art programs, as well as enhanced the Physical Education Department to include athletic opportunities. In addition, there is marked continual improvement in the academics program with ongoing curriculum development and improvement of the learning environment.
As the school moves forward, the leadership focus has continued to be to provide a solid Christian education to the children of South Central Pennsylvania. Currently, CCA has 108 children enrolled. The school is eager and ready to grow to serve more families.
