School Reviews

Both my children attended, and graduated from, CSLA. The academics are above average, and the effort put towards building a sense of community and great school memories is exceptional. We switched to CSLA because my children were just a barely known name to their teachers in the large public school (as in blank look at parent/teacher conferences). The class sizes are smaller at CSLA, the teachers genuinely know and care about the students, and they are clearly a Christian school that shows grace to students who are still working through their personal beliefs. They teach contextual learning, which means they learn AND do. In Economics, our kids had to create their own small business and run it for months and track sales and losses. In Government, they learned about the voting process and then worked in the county Elections Department on election night. My son grumbled through his Literature classes as an average student, but because of the wide exposure and understanding he had gained, went on to get A's in his college Literature classes. I also deeply appreciated the "Seminar" classes which not only show kids how to prepare resumes but then has real employers interview them. They also learned how to write college essays, applied to colleges and applied for scholarships (and got some!). There are also sports and a great drama program, and they also have robotics now. We truly love the school and the people it brought into our lives.
