Student-teacher ratio: 10 to 1
Administrator: John Sigman
Christian Tabernacle Academy was founded in 1973 to give the personal attention to students who were being missed in the classroom. CTA quickly grew into a traditional Christian School. Its small size has allowed it to maintain a family atmosphere and personal attention to students that builds character and encourages academic excellence.
At Christian Tabernacle, the Bible dictates the educational philosophy. “Education without acknowledging the creator would be lacking because we believe that it is only in acknowledging the creator that there is purpose,” says administrator Jaime Hurd. She adds that the school is a “very loving place” where teachers are dedicated to the academic, emotional and spiritual growth of every student.
Home-schooled children are welcome at the school to take specific courses or to participate in the sports program. Athletic offerings include a youth basketball league for children ages 5 through 10.
