Thank You for a Great Partner Day

We had so much fun showcasing our classrooms at our three partner days! Thank you to the partners and families who visited and prayed with our students. It truly encourages our teachers, staff and students when our community comes along side us for the glory of God!

He is Risen!

Easter is such a joyful time at JCA! As we near the second half of our semester, Easter is a time to be filled with the love God has for us which pushes us on, and for that we praise His name! This year’s Easter programs included scripture, songs of praise, and even a short skit. It is a joy to watch our students grow in their artistic giftings and hear them sing to our Savior!

Teaching Young Advocates Through Lobbying Education

Our fifth graders at JCA Main recently took a trip to the Iowa State Capitol where they learned how they can take part in lobbying their legislator. It is a privilege to learn how to be an active citizen and to see our state’s beautiful capitol building!

The Importance of Parent-Teacher Conferences

JCA just finished two days of parent-teacher conferences. One of the parent commitments to being a part of the JCA community is that our parents attend conferences with their student’s teacher. We believe that a child’s education and spiritual formation happens both at school, in the home and in the local church. This is why we require parents and families to be in close communication with our teachers, so that we can make informed decisions to better the lives of every student.

Iowa Assessments are April 9th – 11th and we would like to ask you to consider donating healthy snacks to support our students to give them the energy they will need to succeed! Ideas of healthy snacks include:
