History[edit]

Christian Academy of Madison, was founded in 2007. The school was modeled after its sister school, Christian Academy of Carrollton, Kentucky, as well as schools in the Christian Academy of Louisville School System.

CAM's facility, originally the Wingham Paving Company, consists of two buildings: one for lower elementary, and one for middle and high schools. The original building was renovated to house offices, a computer/assembly room, and one class room; the back wing of the building was added for five classrooms and additional restrooms. An addition to the classroom wing in 2009 added seven new classrooms, allowing grades to be split up into their individual levels to meet enrollment growth and to begin to add high school grades. As the school has grown one grade has been added each year and they are now able to serve 3 year old kindergarten through 12th grade.

In September 2011, the school began accepting "Indiana Choice Scholarship Program" vouchers.[2]
