2020-12-18T18:19:19-05:00

Dear parents, I write this update with an overflowing, grateful heart to the Lord and to each of you. We are finishing up this half of the year with a healthy CBA family (teachers, students, parents, and grandparents). Only three classes quarantined for 5-6 days this fall. The surprising fact is we missed more school the last 4 autumns due to hurricanes than we did this fall due to COVID. The CBA teachers are my heroes. They have made this school an oasis of joy in the middle of a pandemic. If you could see behind the scenes, they come joyfully to [...]
