GA Field trip

Grizzly Academy students went on a field trip to Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve and explored the wonders of the wetlands and its diverse wildlife while learning about wetland ecology and watersheds. Following that adventure we went to the beach to eat lunch and create our own watersheds using squirt bottles to make it rain so we could observe the effects of rain on different elements in that habitat.

CCCS students visited the White House and prayed for our president and our government


This amazing group of students spent 5 days in Washington DC. Our tour explained the buildings, monuments and symbols in the nation’s capital through a Christian lens, as visible proof of religious foundations upon which the country was built.  “We are a nation founded by people who put their trust in God”



CCCS juniors continue with college/university visits in search of the one the Lord has for them.
