We wish to welcome you and to thank you for your interest in this exciting adventure in Christian Education here at the Copiague Christian Academy.
It is the purpose of the Copiague Christian Academy to provide a scholastically excellent program based on the philosophy that all knowledge comes from God and that Jesus Christ is the center of all living and learning.
Christian Education is by no means a new concept. It dates back in this country to the seventeenth century with the foundation of many of the universities today referred to as "Ivy League". Through the years, however, man in his finite wisdom has sought to improve upon it. Today, we have become aware that many of the basics in education have been lost in the shuffle.
With this in mind, we have found the need for returning to some of those basics that founded this country on God's Word; to raise Gods children in the love and admonition of the Lord, and to nurture their complete development in mind, body and spirit (As Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man - Luke 2:52).
After carefully examining the various methods of teaching, we believe we have chosen outstanding courses of study and texts, and have interwoven a reading and math curriculum in all grades, better suited to the requirements of New York State. Our classroom is a traditional setting with aides when necessary. Our academic teachers are carefully chosen qualified individuals dedicated to the needs of the whole child. Since the Academy's first academic year (1983-1984,) we’ve maintained our excitement for this important work.
