Christian Life Academy is pleased to announce that through generous donors, a $10,000 Summer Matching Challenge is now underway! Hopedale Medical Complex, along with two anonymous individuals, have pledged to match all charitable donations to CLA this summer--up to $10,000! These funds will be used to boost our operational budget, allow for continued expansion of our programs, and support an already vibrant faith-based program at CLA.

We encourage you to act now, and *see if the match can be accomplished before July 4th*. What a blessing to have such wonderful support!

To make a donation, which is fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS, please send a check payable to "CLA" to:
PO Box 235, Hopedale, IL 61747.

- 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."
