I've been a parent at CLA since my son was in kindergarten and am 3months away from watching him graduate with a classical Christian education. Never once have I regretted the decision to send my children to CLA, have I considered pulling them out and moving them to a larger school or homeschool, and never have I considered allowing them to walk a block to the local high school. CLA has provided my children with an education that is superior than the other choices because it's taught my kids to think. It's taught them how to learn and how to question what they're learning and filter it through God's lens. And they've been taught by some of the most intelligent and loving people I've ever had the pleasure to know. If you haven't taken the time to visit this school, the teachers and classrooms, just come on a recitation day or during speech meet and see how these children can stand in front of their peers, fearless, and passionately recite their passages. Come during mock trial & watch them think on their feet. Come during a basketball game & see how gracious they are with each other and their opponents, whether they're winning or losing. Just come check it out. You'll see.
CLA is a very special school. It has a rigorous academic curriculum and knowledgeable, caring teachers who love God. My children have just completed their second year there - I love to see them being gently challenged in every way to fulfill their potential. If you want your children to grow up with the leadership skills and the education to be bold ambassadors for Christ, you should highly consider this classical Christian school.
CLA is a very warm and welcoming school. The teachers are academically tough, but fair. My son just completed his first year at CLA and excelled. His teachers really worked with him, which contributed to his success. My child loves this school, and is looking forward to returning in the fall.
Our kids have attended this school for nine years. Our daughter started in the 4th grade and our son in the first. Our daughter is now a senior and the dividends of having her attend a classical and Christian school are obvious and enormous. She just returned from the senior class trip (14 days in Europe - no boondoggle - teacher/parent chaperoned and curriculum oriented) Our son is in 9th grade and blossoming into a young leader - I can't wait to see the finished work - if you don't know about the classical and Christian model of education, you owe it to yourselves and your kids to look into it. Search the internet for Dorothy Sayer's essay entitled 'The Lost Tools of Learning.'
We love this school--it provides a Christian faith-centered, Classical model education with fabulous caring teachers. Our son loves to go to school and is learning wonderfully! The quality of the music and arts programs has been a welcome added bonus. We highly recommend our son's school!
