Welcome to Collegedale Academy 

As on all the CA campuses, the elementary is a Christian community of learners dedicated to extraordinary accomplishments. CA seeks to inspire its learners to think deeply, live fully, serve unselfishly, and love God completely. The CA elementary building offers two classrooms of each grade level offering standard academic classes in language arts, reading, math, social studies and science. Additionally, computer, music, art, library and PE classes are standard curriculum for every grade level.

CA students in the elementary participate in assessments and testing, including Dibels, the Iowa Assessment and  ERB Authentic Writing Assessments. Each year all students’ math and reading skills are assessed with Aimsweb. Our students traditionally rank high in all areas, and exceptionally high in writing and reading skills.

Our teachers regularly participate in professional development trainings throughout the summer months. They continually update their practices and curriculum to best serve our students. Teachers use a variety of teaching methods to reach the variety of learning styles of the students that make up each classroom.

We are glad you are interested in our school and hope we can meet and talk about what we offer in the CA elementary building. Should you be in the Chattanooga area, please stop by and let us show you our campus. We are part of the world wide Seventh-day Adventist school system.

We are the elementary component for the Collegedale Academy in Collegedale Tennessee. Please look through the window of this site to see what our school can offer you.
