FAITH and PURPOSE
CGA was formed in the summer of 2014 after much prayerful deliberation and research by a group of committed families in Central Georgia. Multiple existing programs, (MAC Mustangs Basketball, Patriots Baseball, Crusaders Tennis, Heart of Georgia Soccer) collaborated to create a unified organization to aid and assist homeschooling families. Their desire was to develop a quality program of competitive athletics, arts, and enrichment opportunities to meet the needs of students being educated by non-traditional methods.
CGA is a non-profit corporation operating under the oversight of a Board of Directors and leadership teams made up of Christian parents who have demonstrated leadership skills and a servant’s heart. We prayerfully depend upon God’s direction and blessing to make this organization grow and succeed. We are located in the midst of an active and supportive homeschool community. Many gifted individuals have come alongside to share their resources, talents, skills and athletic abilities with CGA.
It is our hope to honor the Lord and bless the community of home educators in all that we do. We welcome suggestions as well as constructive advice and seek to be open and accountable to those who invest their monies, their time, their talent and their children to our care.
CGA is a recognized 509(a)(2) Public Charity under the Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). Contributions made to CGA are tax-deductible under IRC Section 170. The effective date is July 8, 2014.
Our athletic philosophy has a Biblical foundation, preparing each athlete for Christian life, with emphasis on the parents’ role in their children’s participation. CGA is designed to deliver training in both physical and spiritual disciplines for home school students during the middle and high school years.
PREPARING EACH STUDENT FOR LIFE
Christian-based competitive arts and athletics are positive ingredients in the educational process. The primary goal of CGA is to prepare each student to glorify and honor God in all that he/she does. We support the family as the primary social and educational unit, instituted by God, promoting personal responsibility for both academic and athletic excellence with a strong work ethic, and to aid in the development of life skills and strong Christian character.
ROLE OF PARENTS
CGA provides students with consistent and biblical re-enforcement through competition. Parents work with us to help their students build character and a strong work ethic through challenging competition and to encourage students to accept responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Parents play a vital role in their student's performance, and in their emotional, social, and spiritual development. Participating students and parents must respect our foundational Statement of Faith and abide by our Code of Conduct.
