Welcome to Central Christian Academy

Since1981 Central Christian Academy has been offering residents of Northern Chautauqua County a Christian alternative to public education.

CCA partners with parents to provide a quality, Biblically based education which will assist in the child's academic, social, physical and spiritual development.  In classes that range from age 3 through the12th grade, students at CCA are given a spiritual foundation upon which to grow in addition to the necessary intellectual and social skills needed in all phases of life.

CCA is a ministry of the First Baptist Church of Dunkirk and upholds traditional evangelic truths.  Our students come from a variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds.


Some of the things that set Central Christian Academy apart form public education are:

  • CCA partners with parents and their churches in "training of their children in the way they should go." (Proverbs 22:6)
  • CCA provides a quality education based on the truths of the Bible.
  • CCA prepares students for their future by providing an excellent and balanced education.
  • CCA provides for the development of young leaders.
  • CCA proclaims that all knowledge and wisdom come from God and that the universe around them is in harmony and agreement with its Creator. 

The Virtue of Hard Work

The Virtue of Hard Work

Here at Central Christian Academy we all strive for the Biblical trait of hard work. David Barton has written about what our Founders of the Great Country had to say about this subject. We hope you enjoy it.

The Virtue of Hard Work
By David Barton

In today’s society there is a push for less work and more free time, but the Bible encourages just the opposite. Notice some of its many verses praising hard work:

  • In all labor there is profit (Proverbs 14:23).
  • He who tills his land will have plenty of bread (Proverbs 12:11).
  • And all the deeds of a man’s hands will return to him (Proverbs 12:14).


Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and… work with your hands, so that you will… not be in any need (1Thessalonians 4:11-12).

John Adams recognized that if you lived and guided your life by the Bible, your conscience would “oblige” or require you to work hard.  Hard work is a Biblical teaching, but it must also be accompanied by morality, for hard work in an immoral cause will not bring the promised Biblical reward.  Founding Father John Jay understood this and affirmed that America had become prosperous because the spirit of hard work in the early colonists had properly been joined with virtue and morality.

Because hard work (what the Founders termed industry) was such an important Biblical trait, they inculcated it in their children from their earliest years.  As John Adams reminded his wife Abigail:
   
The education of our children is never out of my mind.  Train them to        virtue.  Habituate them to industry [hard work], activity and spirit.

Thomas Jefferson similarly told his daughter:
       
It is your future happiness which interests me, and nothing can contribute more to it (moral rectitude always excepted) than the contracting a habit of industry and activity. Of all the cankers [enemies] of human happiness, none corrodes with so silent yet so baneful an influence as indolence [laziness]. Body and mind both unemployed, our being [existence] becomes a burden and every object about us loathsome, even the dearest.
   
Our Founding Fathers prominent in the field of education also stressed the importance of teaching this trait to youth.
   
Booker T. Washington, head of the famous Tuskegee Institute, long ago affirmed to students:
       
No man can read the Bible and be lazy. Christianity increases a man’s wants, and therefore increases his capacity for labor.
   
So, look for opportunities to engage in hard; and avoid laziness as the plague it is, remembering that the Bible clearly affirms, “In all labor there is profit.”

Picture Day

Picture Day

Picture day in which all students will have their pictures taken. You willhave the opportunity to purchase several different packages from the photographer. You will be getting all the information sent home to you in your child’s folder. We will start with the youngest students first and move up to the upper grades.  The pictures should be finished during the morning before lunch and recess.  Please be sure all monies you will be sending in are in the envelope given to you with your child’s name on the envelope. Remember to dress up these pictures even if you are not purchasing any. Thank you.
