CLA Testimonials

“I love that (my son) is not only learning the basics of school quite well, but also the importance of learning what's in the Bible and a relationship with Jesus in his life."  - CLA Parent

“The things we teach at home are reinforced at school instead of questioned. That is huge.” - CLA Parent

"CLA is a true blessing, not just to our 13 year old who attended, but to our whole family." - CLA Parent

"Discovering CLA when our daughter was entering 8th grade proved to be discovering the diamond of schools! It is the best school in every regard. We're so thankful for the godly, attentive, and truly caring staff, and immensely grateful for CLA's expansion into high school." - CLA Parent
