We are tax-exempt, and donations made to the organization are tax deductible. For more information, contact Donald Pendergrast at 662-412-2084 or

Benefits of Independent Schools

Because we do not rely solely on state and/or federal funding, we do not have to follow curriculum trends or label students based on standardized test scores. The freedom to implement Christian-based curriculum in every class and the ability to determine student success based on classroom performance over the course of an entire school year are two major reasons why many families today choose CA.
