May 01   Open Enrollment: Colquitt Christian Academy
CCA is a unique setting for grades Kindergarten through Ninth grade. CCA offers a classical education coupled with a strong faith-based approach to learning. Classical education is based on the Trivium whose three aspects correspond with the three stages of a child's development. Trivium, a Latin word, means, "Where three roads meet." Until recently, education was based upon these three rules of learning. Historically they have been called Grammer, Logic, and Rhetoric. The Bible simply calls them knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
