24 Parent Reviews for Cherry Creek Charter Academy
The principal is very money hungry. There are fees for everything under the sun. I do not find him warm to the children. The school is run like the military. He even got the students to write a letter to the school board shaking them down for more funding.

CCA is a great school. The teachers honestly care about the children; there is a strong academic focus, and the school teaches strong values. It has a limited sports program, but a growing music program. Our daughter loves it there. We strongly recommend it.

I am going into 7th grade, but I've been here since kindergarden. A previous comment was that Cherry Creek Academy had serious bullying problems, which I totally agree to. I have been bullied here, and I don't look weird, have any mental problems, smell bad, etc. but I still get bullied, but not as severely.
... Read more I'm not going to go into some huge sob story, but I have been punched in the neck, tackled, and plenty of name calling, too. The teachers are ok, they usually don't care about the way-too-strict uniform policy and never seem to notice any of the bullying happening here. Some teachers have told us how much they hate us and how terrible we are. Overall, this school is good academically except for the "math program", Saxon Math. I recommend not going there at all for the middle school, but elementary school is okay. Whether you're in elementary or middle school, though, go to the neighborhood schools instead of this uppity, dramatic, rich, terrible charter school. Read less

Cherry Creek Academy was a good alternative to a mediocre neighborhood school. My kids were bright, but needed to be challenged and CCA does challenge every child to do the best of their ability. It is diverse and the focus is on academics, so it is perfect for average kids as they can thrive academically
... Read more without as many social distractions. That being said, there is some low level (think annoying sibling type behavior) bullying and in the past, favoritism toward some children and families. Also, your kids can suffer socially as they may not have many friends in their neighborhood. Overall, if you want a focused academic environment for your child, it's a great choice. Read less

I am currently in 7th grade, but I went to Cherry Creek Academy from 2nd grade to 6th grade. Cherry Creek Academy is a great school. It will keep your mind going all through out the day. I was a straight A student and I loved being there!

This school has serious bullying problems over the past years. A number of students ended up transferring out of the school mainly due to being bullied. With the increasing public awareness of the bullying consequences, it is disheartening that the school is still dealing with it ineffectively.

We have 2 boys at CCA, currently in 3rd and 1st grade. The kindergarten team is exceptional with special kudos to the half day teacher. Students come from all over CCSD and there is a surprising amount of diversity. Parental involvement is required by giving 40/20 hrs per school year in many different

Both my husband and I are teachers with a combined 20+ years of experience and we know our children are receiving an exceptional education at CCA. If you are looking for a private school setting with a public school price tag CCA is it. Read less

I am currently in the seventh grade at CCA and have been attending here since first grade. It's a very small school, but the curriculum is amazing and I love it! The enviroment is great and I have made many close friends. I know I won't have to worry about highschool at all because of how prepared everyone

I graduated from 8th grade this year after being there since first grade. CCA is academically a very good school,but I would reccomend leaving after you complete fifth grade there. It depends on what type of student you are. CCA gets you ahead for high school and makes sure you will start out in programs
... Read more such as IB or AP/Honor,but the Middle School was treated as little kids. There is little independence such as forming lines to go to lunch and planner checks. Also, if you are looking for a school with a big social scene, CCA is not it. The classes are small and if you stay there starting in kindergarten or first grade you spend eight or nine years with the same people. There isn't that much diversity either and the babying doesn't prepare you for High School. Education wise, CCA is top of the line! Read less
