A Letter from the Director

Dear Prospective Families,

At Compton Children’s Academy, we pride ourselves in the close-knit community we have established. When you walk through the doors of CCA, you will be greeted by a warmth that is reminiscent of home. Our center is a safe haven with a family atmosphere that includes strong values of care and support. We understand the importance of developing bonds with our families in order for each child to receive the most out of their education.

At Compton Children’s Academy, we provide a home away from home where your child is free to be whoever they wish to be. Creativity is always encouraged and differences are celebrated. Every child should be made to feel that they are special and they can do anything they put their mind to. I would like to invite you to open a world of opportunity for your child by joining the CCA family.
