The Cumberland Difference
"Cumberland Christian has been a very positive experience for us. My daughter has been encouraged to grow, not just mentally, but spiritually as well. We would strongly recommend any parent to prayerfully consider sending their child to CCA." —Middle School Parent
"The decision to send my children to CCA was a 'no-brainer'. We chose the love, structure, and discipline CCA offers over the chaos and despair that government run schools offer. Sure, government schools are 'free' and worth every penny. Investing in CCA is investing in God's kingdom."—Elementary Parent
