We attempt to integrate Scripture in as many areas of the curriculum as we can. We use the Bible as a source of life, instruction, discipline, encouragement and literature. We know that, according to II Timothy 3:16-17, "All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
Christian Life Academy uses various curriculum materials throughout our school year. We have attempted to take the best of several different curriculum programs and choose what we feel best benefits all of our students, utilizing material from A Beka, BJU Press, Apologia, Saxon Mathematics and McGraw Hill Mathematics.
Hands-on science labs are offered in the middle school and high school grades, corresponding to the science course(s) offered.
Although Christian Life Academy is not required to perform standardized testing, nor do we adjust our curriculum to conform to any specific test, we believe that standardized testing is a good way to find out how we and our students compare with the rest of the country. It gives us a chance to understand our strengths and areas of opportunity for improvement. During standardized testing over the last three years, CLA students have consistantly scored above grade average in all areas:
GRADE (Group Reading Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation) grades K-4, administered annually since 2009
GMADE (Group Mathematics Assessment and Diagnostic Evaluation) grades 1-4, administered annually since 2011
Stanford Core Battery Achievement Tests grades 5-8, administered since 2011
