Premiere K-10 Education
Compass Classical Academy (CCA) believes that all students, regardless of socio-economic background or academic competence, benefit from a rigorous, content rich, educational program that develops academic potential and personal character. We believe students will achieve their best potential when taught foundational skills and challenged by high expectations.
Children learn by building on what they already know. Therefore, it is important for them to begin building foundations of knowledge in the early grades. By specifying the knowledge that all children should share, one can achieve equal access to that knowledge. Thus all students, including those considered at risk, are exposed to a coherent core of challenging, interesting, interwoven knowledge when taught a content based curriculum. Unique to our approach is the combining of the classical, liberal arts tradition with cutting edge, researched based programs, each of which involves an organized and sequential continuum of learning.
With these foundational beliefs, we have established the following mission:
- To provide a safe learning environment designed to instill integrity, good citizenship, compassion and confidence in each child.
- To promote a caring community of students, highly trained educators and administrators, and involved parents.
- To provide a high quality education that is thought provoking, coherent, meaningful and engaging.
We believe that having involved parents and students is essential to reaching our goal. The comprehensive and challenging education provided at CCA necessitates active parental support throughout the school year. We strongly encourage parents to remain informed about the academic endeavors of their children and maintain open communication with teachers and administrators.
Students who graduate from Compass Classical Academy will be prepared to further their education in a four year college, a two year community college or a trade school, to serve in the military or immediately enter the workforce. We offer students a liberal arts education that will prepare them to make choices for their futures based on their personal interests and abilities and not restricted by their educational history.
Parent volunteerism is an important part of CCA. We depend on our parents to share their talents and time to help make our school successful. There are many types of volunteer activities. Volunteers working directly with children must have a criminal background check. Background checks take 2-3 weeks to complete, so please get yours done in advance if you think you might chaperone a field trip at some point throughout the year. Information about how to obtain a criminal background check is available in the office.
Each classroom teacher schedules various field trips to interesting and educational locations. Parents are encouraged to chaperone such school activities, but are asked not to bring younger children due to liability issues. Any person transporting students must provide CCA with proof of a current driver’s license and a minimum liability insurance coverage of $100,000/$300,000. Proof of driver’s license and insurance coverage needs to be resubmitted yearly. In addition, chaperones are required to have a criminal background check prior to the activity. Field trips are considered an extension of CCA. Therefore all school policies and rules apply for all students, as well as chaperones.
