Welcome to CMCA

Hello!

Thank you for your interest in Central Miami Christian Academy.  We would love to have an opportunity to serve you and your student. 

What makes a CMCA education distinct is captured in our school symbol – the Flamboyant Tree. Let me take a few moments to look at the tree with you.

The first part of a beautiful tree is easy to miss—the soil in which it is rooted. We believe the best learning happens in the soil of love and respect. At CMCA we are committed to creating an environment where every person matters and is valued.  

The next part—the trunk, branches, and leaves—are the growth zone. A tree grows slowly but strong. Just like a tree, student success is a process. At CMCA we work alongside of students to help them flourish academically. At the same time, we cheer the ultimate mark of success—faithfulness. We are inspired by each faithful action that grows students into the person and future God has designed for them.   

Ultimately, the beautiful flowers of the Flamboyant point to the end of education. CMCA provides a high-quality education with special attention given to every student so that our graduates can succeed as they leave our classrooms. We believe they bloom the brightest as their lives are devoted to serving—their city, their world, and their God.

We hope to soon welcome you to the CMCA family!
