Welcome to the Southwest Campus, one of the four campuses in the Christian Academy School System. My name is Anna Carson, and I am blessed and honored to be the principal at this campus. This particular campus is a Preschool -8th grade campus. We are family oriented and intimate in nature and we are blessed beyond measure. Our preschool is growing steadily, which means grades Kindergarten-8 will follow suit. At present, we have two sections in our preschool ages of 2s, 3s and 4s. Our sections of Kindergarten through 8th grade have one section of each.
The mission of our school system is based on Luke 2:52, which is to develop students with a heart for God who grow as Jesus did in wisdom, stature and in favor with God and men. I can honestly say as an educator for 20 years now that there is no other place I would have my children. My husband and I have a son in preschool and an elementary-aged son. This campus knows my boys and my family. The teachers and staff partner in the mission of our system with us as parents. We are not perfect, but we are a passionate body called to serve in an eternal educational place for such a time as this. When I am blessed to sit down with parents, I thank them for their eternal investment in their child. I know my greatest desire for my children is that they will know God, love God and serve God all their days. That is our first priority for them. They are surrounded by Christ followers, and they are learning skills that are necessary in becoming and being the person God has created them to be.
The spiritual growth and academic excellence go hand in hand. Students are able to gain a true knowledge and understanding of God and His truths throughout the curriculum. The curriculum is top notch in foundational and fundamental learning skills with a Biblical worldview throughout every subject. Students are challenged and instructed in a manner that encourages them to do their best, and to do it as unto the Lord. The academic curriculum is rigorous and is college preparatory in nature from the onset.
Each year we focus on a theme that permeates through the classroom, chapels and service projects. This year we are focused on “Loving God” with our scripture basis coming from 1 John 4:19, Matthew 22: 37-39 and Ezekiel 36:26. It is my desire for each student to be a lifelong learner and world changer for Christ.
Thank you for taking the time to visit and gather information about our campus. Blessings to each of you.
