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.
