From the Headmaster: Raising Boys


I look forward to future blogs, parent chats and conversations about boys and girls. For now, I would like to provide some resources for parents of boys. Did you know that boys’ bodies start injecting them with testosterone by the 8th week after conception? Did you know that boys have up to 20 times more testosterone than girls and experience six to seven surges a day? That’s my excuse, anyway, for why I had to get out of my chair 100x a day, and why I drove my mom and teachers crazy!  It is possible for schools to be led and [...]

Shalom: A Message From Mr. Johnson


Dear Parents, I cannot thank you enough for your encouragement, collaboration and cooperation during the first month of school. We continue to be extremely diligent in protecting our children from COVID and other illnesses, while we strive to do everything possible to keep students in class. To date, we have had to quarantine six classes (each for one week): Liz’s 2 year old class (this past Wednesday), Damaris’ 3A class, Pamela’s 3B, Ingrid’s Kindergarten, 1st Grade B, and 2nd Grade. Most recently, we moved to our outdoor class protocol following an exposure in a 4K class, 1st Grade B, and 4th-5th [...]

Quarantines and school illnesses

2021-09-11T14:15:50-04:00 As CBA rounds out the first month of school, Dr.  Johnson shared an update on how school is going. So far this year, four classes have been in quarantines. Those classes included one kindergarten pod, two 3-year-old classes, and a second grade class. Zoom schedules and homework packages are prepared for students in quarantine. Those packages can be picked up from the back door of the school, the door that faces the playground, 24 hours after the quarantine is announced. A quarantine lasts seven days if a student produces a negative COVID test and are not showing any symptoms. [...]

2020. A death and life situation. Thoughts from Dr. Johnson.


In an affluent society, it is easier to be an atheist. Or at least a pragmatic atheist. Regardless of what you say you believe, our actions can look like we are controlling our own destiny and we live for the here and now. Where we spend our money and time will quickly reveal where our heart beliefs lie (pun intended?).  If our ledger does not reveal our hearts, our anxieties will. What stresses us out, and what does that reveal about our beliefs in God and the afterlife? Our affluence has led us to what culture calls a “post truth” society. [...]

COVID-19 Prevention and Control – 12/18/20 Parent Update


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 [...]
