Our Mission & Vision
Commonwealth Christian Academy’s mission is to point children to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, encourage spiritual growth, develop Christian character and morals, and promote sound academic achievement.
In prayerful response to the many requests of parents in the local community, Commonwealth Christian Academy (CCA) was founded in 1997 by Dr. Michael D. McClary and his late wife, Janet. Noting the secular mantra being generated by the public school system, CCA was established to provide a Biblically-based, Jesus Christ centered education as an alternative choice to all those families seeking the best for their children.
CCA is private Christian school which provides a quality education for underprivileged, at-risk children in the city of Richmond. Needless to say, inner-city Richmond needs a school such as ours to help strengthen children spiritually and academically so that they can live productive lives. Our current enrollment stands at 50+ children, grades K(5)-12.
CCA is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, non-denominational organization. CCA’s annual tuition for each child stands at approximately $5,000 yearly. This tuition includes: education for one year, field trips, supplies and hot lunches. Parents pay by income, which is often around $55.00 per month. The rest of the funds needed are provided by donations from caring supporters.
We believe that every family should be able to give their children a quality CHRISTIAN education, We are convinced that a godly school, working with a motivated family and Biblical church, can make a difference for life.
