Christian Academy provides quality, faith based education that has helped guide the youth of St. Louis since the 1970s. The mission of the school shines through in every aspect of the students day to day life. The faculty and staff have a deep faith and belief in everything that they do. I recommend Christian Academy to anyone that is looking for a quality education, in a caring, loving environment.

My son is a junior this year and has been going to CA since he was in preschool, his journey with CA has been a great experience! Academically he is doing outstanding and it wouldn't be possible without the wonderful teachers, they go above and beyond!

I have been associated with Christian Academy for 30 years. Every teacher at the Academy works very hard to address academics as well as a Biblical view. The student body is very close and works well across all ages. Students often return after graduation to tell us how much Christian Academy meant to them. If you are looking for a school with excellent teachers, phenomenal students, and a Christian view, then Christian Academy is the school for you!

I highly recommend Bright Beginnings Early Childhood Center at the Christian Academy of Greater St. Louis to any parent seeking a loving, safe, nurturing environment for their child. The teachers and administrators love our 18-month-old son as though he were their own, and it's wonderful to see how excited he is to go to preschool each morning. Activities are developmentally appropriate for his age, with plenty of space for free play. We love CA!

As a parent and Pastor in the community I HIGHLY recommend CAGSL. My children have been a part of CAGSL for 3 years but I have been personally involved for about 6 years. First and foremost they Keep God number one and the top priority of their school. They teach the love of Jesus and the scriptures as they should. Academically they are as good as it gets. The teachers there go above and beyond to make sure each and every student is set up for success. CA is one big family atmosphere, and it starts at the top with the school administrator Mrs. Payne. She sets the example day in and day out and her staff follows suit. Unlike many schools the cohesion between the student, no matter the age, is truly amazing. CAGSL is light in our community and we are proud to be a part of the crusader family. We pass several Christian schools on our 45 minute drive to CAGSL and have visited many during sporting events and CAGSL is head and shoulders of them all in every aspect. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want more info.. Pastor Aaron Cofer, Have Bible Will Travel, 3145676007.

We have been so pleased with CA. Our son was made to feel welcomed his first year there, and was able to play on a championship basketball team. Additionally, the class sizes are small, and he is able to receive individualized attention. The teachers go above and beyond- it has been a blessing for us.

Both my children attended CA from KG - 12th grade and really enjoyed their experience there. They would not trade it for anything else. The academics provided scholarships that paid for most of their college tuition at top-ranked schools. The sports and arts programs expanded their opportunities to grow in leadership and citizenship. They both excelled in all aspects. The friendships they made are still the best and even though they are in other parts of the country. They are still close. You can not get any better than CA!

My son loves CA! The small class sizes give him plenty of one-on-one. His academics are through the roof, and he feels right at home.
