Testimonials

What Parents are Saying

Three of our children graduated from CIA. Two of our children, several nieces, and 3 grandchildren also graduated from CIA. I am still volunteering at the school. To us, this ministry is a powerful instrument for Christ and a beacon of light in this community. We love this school.

Karen McGahan

via Facebook

My children have been attending CIA for five years now and it has been the best decision we have ever made as a family. Not only do they receive an incredible education but they are also genuinely loved by the staff, they go above and beyond to nurture the heart, mind and soul of all of the kids that go there… You truly cannot put a monetary value on the education your child will get from this school, it is priceless.
