Cheswick Christian Academy's drama club, directed by Mrs. Brandy Blazevich, is presenting Big Bad, a dinner theater where the audience is the jury and will decide the guilt of Big Bad (the wolf).  It is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th at 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at Crosspointe Church (2581 Freeport Road, 15238 - the old Ponderosa).  The dinner menu is salad, penne pasta w/spaghetti sauce, meatballs, roll, and dessert.  There will also be a basket raffle!  Ticket prices are $15 (adult) and $12 (12th grade and under), and they are going fast.  Tickets may be purchased in the high school office; please make checks payable to CCA.  The deadline for ticket sales is May 11th.  Tickets will not be sold at the door.  All proceeds benefit CCA.

Kennywood Tickets - We are no longer selling Kennywood tickets because other distributors such as Giant Eagle, etc. can sell them cheaper than we can get them. The CCA Kennywood Picnic Day is Wednesday, June 13th.


 
 
 
Schwan's Fundraiser (IT HAS STARTED!) - 1/15/18 - 5/30/18 (but highest profit % from 1/15/18 - 3/1/18!)
As a replacement for Market Day, in which we participated for years, we are again joining up with Schwan's for a yearly fundraiser for general expenses.  The fundraiser will run from January 15th to May 30th, 2018.  The school will earn 20% profit on all food orders placed between January 15th and March 1st and $10 for every $25 eGift card purchased (limit one per Schwan's account).  The school will continue to earn a 5% profit from March 2nd through May 30th.  Please note:  In order for the school to receive the most benefit from the eGift card purchase, purchasers should wait until after the campaign is over to use it.
 
We encourage all to participate.  If you don't wish to participate, consider donating to our ministry here at the school.

Elementary Roof - HELP!
Our elementary school roof is in bad shape.  We have limped along sealing leaks as they occurred for as long as we can.  We now need to replace it.  If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to our roof fund, please make checks out to CCA and note "roof fund" in the memo.
 
 
 
529 College Savings Plans - Breaking News!
The new tax legislation has a change for people with 529 college savings plans.  The funds from those plans can now be used to pay elementary and high school tuition costs and are no longer only for use for college expenses.  If you have a 529 plan, or are considering opening a 529 plan, you may want to look into the details of the tax legislation (exempt from federal and some state taxes) to see if that could be helpful to you.

 
 
 
New for 2017-18  
We are no longer distributing monthly gold envelopes.
Beginning this school year, students will receive a thick student/parent manual on the first day. 
All 2017-18 information and forms to be returned for the entire school year will be in that manual.
 

Any current pertinent information will be posted on this website announcement page.
 
 

 
Other:

 
We are always looking for substitute teachers or 7th-12th elective teachers if you have an area of expertise. 
Please contact the school for information and requirements.
 



 
The Policy on Tuition and Fees for 2017-18 and 2017-18 School Calendar are posted on this website!
Remember:  families having one graduating senior as the only student enrolled must pay over 10 months instead of 12 so that full payment is made prior to graduation.  Diplomas will not be issued to students owing tuition.
 
 



12 monthly TUITION PAYMENTS are due the 20th of each month.

Monthly tuition payments (12 of them) are due the 20th of each month (Aug. through July).
There is a grace period to midnight of the last day of each month, after which a $20 late fee will be assessed. 
 
We have a mail slot in the front door of the high school where tuition payments may be inserted. 
Postmarks are never considered.
 
If you are late paying your tuition, please just include the late fee. 
We are a ministry operating on a small budget with one of the lowest tuition rates in the area
and would appreciate the late fee just being included if you have, in fact,
missed the 8-11 day grace period. 
Thanks to those of you who have done that! 
 
Once two late fees have been assessed or tuition is late two times, the Academy reserves the right to REQUIRE payments for enrollment to continue.

Cheswick Christian Academy's Wellness Policy
Cheswick Christian Academy has had a policy in place (called the Wellness Policy) since 2007 to encourage healthy eating habits and physical activity. It is reviewed annually and discussed at faculty meetings.  We welcome parental input and suggestions to further our wellness goals.  The high points for which we strive to achieve are to lead by example, encourage nutritional education to be part of our comprehensive program taught at every grade level, encourage participation in recess for elementary students and physical education class at all levels, encourage nutritional choices at school parties, and to limit the use of food as a reward for classroom or school activities unless the reward is an activity that promotes a positive nutrition message.  For a copy of our Wellness Policy in its entirety, please call the school office.  There will be a wellness committee meeting four times a year, at the end of each grading period.  Parents are welcome to attend these meetings.  Please contact the school office for details.

In the event of an Emergency...   THIS IS A 1/6/15 REVISION
In the event of an emergency evacuation of our school(s), we have made arrangements with the Harmar House in Cheswick on Pittsburgh Street about a half mile down from the school towards Harmar to accommodate our students.  This is a change from the Ches-a-rena over GoodWill, which has moved.
The phone number for the Harmar House is (724) 274-4822.  Every effort would be made to keep parents informed via this website.  All student's cell phones would become allowably accessible.
 
 
 

And remember...
Cheswick Christian Academy was established to train a generation of children to live for Christ.
