CRCA was established in 2003, in obedience to God’s calling to the local church, to impact the children of our town. At that time, the church didn’t have the funds to open a school, but God lead the way. They began to use the church temple as a learning center and a group of volunteers served as teachers impacting the lives of our first 24 students.
Throughout the years, we began to grow as God provided all the school’s needs. In 2018 the school was serving 180 students, paid staff of 25 teachers and administration. With great sacrifices, parents involvement and hard work they were able to build classrooms, a basketball court, kitchen, lunchroom and an audiovisual room. The High School students were obtaining outstanding grades in national exams and admitted in the best Universities in and out of Puerto Rico. Then, the school was greatly damaged by Hurricane Maria in September 2017. They lost classrooms, the kitchen, offices, equipment, fences, materials and playgrounds.
Although many schools in Puerto Rico had to shut down operations, they were blessed by many helping hands and were able to re-opened shortly after the disaster. On May 2, 2018 we received Gus and Becky with a small team lead by God, who wanted to bring relief and help a Christian school to recover from the impact of hurricane Maria. In the last 3 years, we have partnered with them and our school is not the same.
