Beginning with 35 students and 4 teachers, Cornerstone Christian Academy was established in 1992 to provide families in the greater Paducah area with a quality, Christian educational experience that surpasses learning in a standard classroom.  In 1994 the school’s name was changed to Community Christian Academy and was no longer under the auspices of one church.  CCA is non-denominational and as such, does not lift one denomination over another, but rather attempts to lift up and honor our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as the head of our school.

Throughout the years our school has seen many different changes to our cities, counties, country, and world.  Today CCA realizes it is imperative for the light of our school to shine.  In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus instructed, “You are the light of the world.  A city set on a hill cannot be hidden” in Matthew 5:14.

CCA graduates have represented that light in professions, both locally and around the world, including teachers, medical professionals, government officials, and servicemen in the armed forces.  Our mission each day is to prepare another generation of Christian leaders.  

“CCA absolutely prepared me spiritually, relationally and academically for life after high school.  The Warrior Way is a part of me that guides my decision-making to this day.  I was blessed to be a part of this wonderful community.”
