In partnership with parents, CBA exists to inspire world changers through Christ-centered, intercultural, immersion-based education.
Having studied education his whole career, Dr. Johnson has set out to build his dream school for his children. Yet, his vision essentially goes beyond his children to his community, for he believes the core of education is to inspire children to change their world (not be the center of their worlds). Based on his doctoral research on bilingual and intercultural education, Charleston Bilingual Academy was founded on the powerful mission of “Inspiring World Changers” through Christ-centered, intercultural, language immersion education.
Through a project-based approach, CBA engages children’s language geniuses and various cultures, carving characters, instilling the love of God, and equipping intellects, in efforts to inspire children to impact lives around them regardless of linguistic and cultural barriers.
