Painting of school


Cardinal Community Academy Charter School is a public charter school serving students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. CCA is open to all interested students, regardless of where they reside. Since we are a public school, there are no fees to attend CCA. The school opened in 2000 with seventy-five students and has grown in student numbers every year. For more information on Colorado charter schools, please visit the Colorado League of Charter schools website.


The mission of CCA is to serve students’ needs to achieve educational excellence by providing a well-rounded curriculum while encouraging a love of learning in a safe and positive environment.

We believe this statement can be well paraphrased as this:
