Our Vision

Our vision is to provide a place where students are empowered by the Holy Spirit and that each student reaches their full spiritual, academic, and physical potential. 

We are committed to assist parents in fulfilling their biblical responsibility to train the student in the knowledge of God and the Christian life, while providing an excellent academic education. School is an extension of the family.

Statement of Faith

We believe in the Holy Trinity—one God, eternally existing in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in one God, the Father, creator of heaven and earth, of all things seen and unseen. 

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. All things were made through Him and for Him. He is true God and true man. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and was born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered, died, was buried, and on the third day He rose from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will return to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who eternally proceeds from the Father. He is Teacher, Comforter, Helper, and Giver of spiritual gifts. Through Him the saving and sanctifying works of Jesus Christ are applied to the life of believers. He is the empowering Presence of God in the life of the Christian and the Church. The Father has sent His Son to baptize with the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues and bearing the fruit of the Spirit are New Testament signs of being filled with the Holy Spirit. 

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross; and that He died in our place. The believer’s sins are forgiven by the shedding of His blood. 

We believe that healing of mind, body, soul, and spirit is available to the believer through the blood of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit. 

We believe that the grace of God brings forgiveness and reconciliation to those who repent, as well as transformation in holiness, enabling them to live a Christ-like life. Sanctification is both a definite work of grace, and a lifelong process of change in the believer brought by the blood of Jesus, the Word of God and the enabling power of the Holy Spirit. 

We believe in one holy, universal Church, composed of all true believers in Jesus Christ, offering fellowship and calling for service to men and women of all races, nations, cultures, and languages. 

We believe in the spiritual and ultimate visible unity of the Church. We believe that the Bible—both Old and New Testaments—is the inspired Word of God. He has spoken to us through men He chose, who were “carried along by the Holy Spirit.” The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself and His will to humankind, sufficient for instruction in salvation and daily Christian living. The Bible is the Christian’s rule of faith and practice. 

We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in His image and likeness; and therefore, that all human life is sacred. 

We believe in the sanctity of marriage, being a holy, legal and lifelong union between one man and one woman, as set forth in the divine order of creation. 

We recognize and accept those who, after having been divorced, have found grace, marital and familial stability and contentment in second marriages that are acceptable by biblical standards. 

We believe in the sanctity of the family—traditionally a father, mother, and their children, as the building block of society and the Church. We affirm single-parent families, as well as married couples who cannot or do not have children. Families are an integral part of the household of faith, each having opportunity to participate in the full life and ministry of the Church. We further affirm Christians who choose or are called to a life of singleness and chastity to serve God. 

We believe that God will ultimately reconcile all things in heaven and earth in Christ. Therefore, we look forward to new heavens and a new earth.

Statement Of Educational philosophy

The philosophy of Crescent City Christian Academy is to enable students to view life from God’s perspective because He is the Truth and Light. We believe Biblical perspective is communicated through His Word. 

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. Jesus Christ is the central theme of history and is the central authority of what men say, do, or believe. Man was created in God’s image, but that image was ruined at the fall when man chose to sin against God. God provided a way of redemption for man through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. A Christian receives the Holy Spirit to guide him into all truth. 

We seek to ground everything we do on the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ. All members of the educational process at Crescent City Christian Academy are personally committed to Jesus Christ. Teachers seek to integrate Biblical truth into each subject being taught.

We believe the educational process is only accomplished through the successful integration of academics and the Word of God. We believe that a proper relationship between family, church, and school is essential to Christian education. It is the responsibility of the parents to teach and train a child.

Crescent City Christian Academy is a ministry of the church and an extension of the educational process of the home. The pursuit of knowledge is more than the collection of information. It also includes understanding and Godly wisdom. 

We are committed to leading students and their families to a closer relationship with God, to graduating students with both excellent academics and character, and to developing history makers and world changers for the Kingdom of God.
