CCLA is a warm and friendly school. My children have been going to CCLA for the last 8 years and come home happy. The staff is fully qualified. Each classroom is small intentionally so that the students can get individualized attention. It is hard to read the negative reviews but I realize that everyone has a different experience. As the previous reviewer said "parents, see for yourselves". Take a tour, meet the Director and the staff. You will find them very willing to serve you and your family in any way possible. The academic program for the elementary students is above average. The test scores for my son were very high - higher than I ever imagined! Thank you CCLA for a job well done.

I realize that the only thing that would motivate you to come to this forum would be if you either really love the school or the extreme opposite. I'm sorry to see some parents disappointed. I personally love this school and the passion and devotion the staff have to the children. The class sizes are intentionally small so that the children receive the best attention. The principal is genuinely caring and so are the staff. The children love it and so do I, but you really have to see it for yourself.

. This school has no concept of respect for children and really they do not how to teach with love and respect. I report with the principal a big problem for my girl and she addressed but she said if this problem continued you are right to change to another school. Of course I change. They never have seen in their mind this verses. My girl always remember. 1 Timothy 4:12 "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another. -- Ephesians 4:32 I call on you, God, because You will answer me. -- Psalm 17:6 The Lord will hear when I call to Him. -- Psalm 4:3 Let us love one another, because love is from God. -- 1 John 4:7 Even a young man is known by his actions--by whether his behavior is pure and upright. -- Proverbs 20:11 I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me. -- Philippians 4:13 Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord gives wisdom, and from His mouth comeknowledge and understanding.I hope this help to teach in the right way love.

This school has no concept of respect for children. My son was enrolled there for one month and one day my husband went to pick him up from school. They handed him an Incident Report where on the top of the report where the child name goes it said: Your Stubborn Child! The rest of the report continued to insult my child and when they realized they had given him the wrong report they apologized saying it was not about my son but another child. In my opinion whether it was about my son or any other child at that school it seems unprofessional and i makes me wonder if they would be capable of writing that what are they doing to him or how are they treating him?

This is a great school, it is a little but still so good. They try all the kids like a family and they learn so fast with discipline and respect.

I love this school! My girls have been going there for quite a few years and they love it. The teachers care for there students. Class size is very small. Cost is beyond reason for a private institution. Very family oriented atmosphere. Teachers take time to talk with parents regularly and keep parents informed.

I was not happy with the play ground, or after school program. I mean lack of any. A small school, the administration only cared about a small group of children who's parents were on the board or when to their chruch. Not to impressed with office staff. However, the teachers were doing the best job possible with the resorces given to them.

Excellent school, and not a bad price. They recognize that parents sacrifice to send their children to a private school and they make sure to make it well worth the sacrifice. Excellent teachers and a caring staff. My daughter loves it. The work is challenging, but not overwhelming. They keep to your child's pace. I love it!!

This is a wonderful Christian school wtih small class sizes. It is structured to only accomodate a certain amount of students which I believe ensures success.

This is a fantastic small PreK-5th grade Christian elementary school with dedicated teachers and involved parents. The teachers are well-educated and certified, and truly devoted to the students.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
