The school has had a profound impact on thousands of young people, their families and the church. I believe it is making a difference that we may not fully realize this side of eternity. I believe that supporting this school, its mission, and specifically the ALL IN Annual Fund campaign will have a greater long term impact on the lives of young people and their families than most anything a person could do.

As Christians and parents, we gladly support causes we believe in and that accomplish good things. As Chairman of the Columbia Academy Board, I ask you to consider the unique benefits CA provides your family and include CA in your charitable giving. I hope and pray that you will further show your belief in our mission by supporting the CA ALL IN Annual Fund. If you already support this campaign, thank you, and please consider increasing your support this year as we work toward our shared goals.
CA Board Chairman, CA Parent, and CA Alumnus
We are committed to providing a faith-based private education for our children. We feel like Columbia Academy was the right school to partner with for a quality education in a smaller classroom environment. Understanding there are gaps in what tuition covers and doesn’t cover makes it easy to get on board with the ALL IN campaign.
Please consider participating in the ALL IN Annual Fund campaign in order for our students to have an outstanding environment for learning and growth. We are committed to serving them so that they flourish in every way – academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually, and your help makes this possible!

CA President, CA Parent, and CA Alumnus
We choose to send our children to Columbia Academy because it has the whole package: stellar academics, teaching from a Biblical world-view, and a family feel that is rare in today’s world. Columbia Academy has given my children, my wife and me a community…a place to belong. My children feel safe and accepted there and children need safety in order to reach their full potential…academically, spiritually and socially. If anyone believes in the value of educating children for the temporal future and for eternity, then I think that CA and the Annual Fund should be a part of their charitable giving.
