The Mission of Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy is to grow students spiritually, mentally and physically.
The foundation of the mission is set forth in the Four Principles of the Student Integrity Curriculum: developing a mind for the Master, learning that leadership is predicated on being a selfless servant, realizing the importance of being academically acute, and understanding the value of being physically fit.
The total SMLCA experience should enable its alumni to be characterized as being joyful, articulate, poised, confident, humble, polite, balanced, discerning and fully prepared for their next step of life.
We offer a quality academic program for students in pre-kindergarten through 10th grade.

School Reviews

I am very pleased with the academic and ethical values instilled at SMLCA. INTEGRITY INSTITUTE is just one facet of the extra attention and love that my daughter embodies from her exposure to the low teacher-student ratios. And, we have the freedom to Pray and say the Pledge to our country. Smlca is an affiliate school of Renewanation.
