About CAD

The Christian Academy for the Deaf seeks to honor God and serve our community by creating a unique learning environment to serve students who are Deaf and hard of hearing.

We aim to provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students to grow in the knowledge and love of God and neighbor and become equipped to lead and serve throughout their lives. Our curricula are designed specifically to meet the communicational, emotional, and social needs of Deaf and hard of hearing students through classroom instruction in American Sign Language and research based best practices for dual literacy in English.

The Christian Academy for the Deaf strives to create a seat of learning and research for children who are deaf or hard of hearing so that they may receive an exemplary education without discrimination or restraint by using American Sign Language as the accessible language of instruction with dual literacy in English.

Our Philosophy

It is widely known that less than 1% of people who are Deaf or hard of hearing know and walk with relationship with Jesus. At CAD, we aim to nurture and equip students to grow in their love of God and become leaders for the Church worldwide.

Greater than 94% of children who are deaf are born to parents who are hearing. CAD helps both parents and students gain the fluency to share their faith together without any barriers of language or understanding. We seek to serve the whole family, equipping students to understand and lead, equipping parents to share in their child’s growing academic and faith endeavors, and equipping the Church to serve these families and, in turn, be served by them.
