High School

High School

High School (HS) at CCA includes grades 9 through 12.  Our high school students will experience a student-friendly, Biblically-based, multi-cultural environment that teaches students to think critically while developing spiritually, socially, and academically. 

Opportunities for development take place through academic rigor, small group discussions, athletic competitions, participation in the arts and music, community outreach projects, and one-on-one discipleship. We stress self-discipline and wise decision making.  Students develop skills that will help them to be effective in the world that they will encounter.  Following graduation, students will be prepared for an English-speaking, post-secondary education in any U.S. college or university. Students can also qualify for a local diploma giving them the opportunity to study in the local Panamanian and Latin American Universities as well.
