As one who attended and graduated from a public school, I just assumed that my children would as well. God, though, led us in a different direction. Both of my children now attend this precious school and are guided, inspired, and directed by teachers and staff who truly care about the entire child. They teach everyone's mind, body, and soul, which is priceless. The curriculum is rigorous yet merciful and allows for unique learning opportunities, such as special events and field trips. The school hours and calendar allow for proper instruction time while enabling healthy family time. Our nation has been changing its focus, values, and standards, so I am daily grateful that the Lord brought us to Christian Life Academy.

CLA is a great school with very high academic standards. The teachers truly care about the students. The administration is creative in providing an exciting curriculum to keep student interest high. The high school program is more like college than high school to prepare students to compete in the college environment.
