CMPCA's humble beginning

In the year 2000, Mrs. Zarah M. Zaldivar with the support of Mr. Richard & Mrs. Theresa Parker (in California, USA) initiated a pioneering work in Suclaran. She started a learning center in one classroom made of light materials.

It was School Year 2000-2001, Claire Christian Learning Center was born with 19 pupils enrolled.

Year 2006 the proposed two class roomed school building was built. In 2007, Claire Christian Learning Center moved to the new building and held its 6th Closing Exercises in the new site.

May 4, 2007 the family of Mrs. Theresa Parker held its first family meeting in Matagsing, San Enrique. The Board of Trustees was formed and BOT officers were appointed. Mrs. Julah M. De Leon was assigned to be BOT President and was tasked to process the Registration to Securities and Exchange Commission as well as the Government Permit to operate from the Department of Education. The name was changed from Claire Christian Learning Center to Claire Marie Parker Christian Academy as suggested by Mrs. Parker.

In School Year 2007-2008, 29 pupils from nursery to Grade 1 enrolled with 4 teaching staff. The school was pleased to have parents who trusted and supported the school. They are the ones who promoted the school and encouraged their friends and relatives to send their children to CMPCA.

Amidst difficulties and frustrations the school survived six years of operation. A Government Recognition from the Department was received on its 6th year and the Lord continues to pour out His blessings as affirmation that He is still with this school.

For School Year 2012-2013 the enrollment increased to 91 pupils and 8 teachers comprise the teaching force supported by 4 school staff.

This year we celebrate the first elementary graduation of the pioneering class. Indeed God is great and worthy to be praised for all the things He has done. Praise be to God!!!
