1. Why was the name Covenant Christian Academy chosen?
To effectively market the school to Christian families, we chose the name Covenant because it is Biblical, widely recognized and represents the special relationship God has established with His people through Jesus, His Son, and our redeemer. The word “Christian” was chosen because we are thoroughly Christian in all that we do. The word “academy” was chosen rather than the word “school” to provide emphasis that this is an educational institution striving for academic quality to the Glory of our God.
2. Is the Academy accredited?
Yes. CCA is fully accredited by the following:
- Georgia Association of Christian Schools
- American Association of Christian Schools
- North American Christian School Accrediting Agency
- National Council for Private School Accreditation

These accreditations are recognized by the Georgia Private School Accreditation Council, the Georgia Department of Education, the Board of Regents, and the Georgia Student Finance Commission. This status means that our graduates are eligible for the Hope Scholarship.
CCA has obtained accreditation at the state, regional, national, North American, and international level allowing our students to be recognized globally by virtually any college/university.
