As a certified member of the University-Model® Schools International (UMSI), CCA offers a unique educational model that combines the best of traditional education with an exceptionally strong partnership between the school and the home. Students attend classes on campus in the central classroom two days (K-3rd) / three days (4th-12th) a week and continue their studies in the home-based satellite classroom on alternate days. Professional teachers assign and assess satellite work on a regular basis. Low student-teacher ratio allows for greater instructional effectiveness and better use of classroom time. Satellite classroom study is monitored and proctored by parents who foster incrementally greater independence and responsibility in the later school years. Parents work under the supervision and guidance of the professional educator (classroom teacher) who provides direct instruction in the central classroom. University-Model® students are well-prepared to responsibly manage the rigors of a college schedule, curriculum, and expectations.
