“We were looking for a school that was able to both support and challenge our son as his academic abilities evolve. It was also vital to me that the atmosphere be encouraging yet structured. In Columbia Academy we found all of this with a reasonable tuition. It was everything we were looking for.”

"The faith integration, along with teachers who are passionate for Christ, is something I would not have experienced at any other school."
