Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

First year at CLA. I have to say, every school has it's cons, but the Christian environment more than make up for that! (Especially in light of Common Core and other issues with public school) It's like a big family, has small class sizes, teachers who truly care and do an awesome job, and a staff that is always striving to improve the school. They are growing- I hope you will give them a call! Also, the fundraisers are fun and not that bad!

Fund raisers are poorly set up. Parents are expected to go around to family, friends, and the community and just ask people to give money to the school (which is pretty awkward). If you do not raise the amount of money they require, you have to pay it out of pocket. The teachers are wonderful, though, and the class sizes are small. For the amount of money that is spent in tuition, it was not worth it for us compared to a public school.

CLA has an excellent elementary program. High school is a different setup with more of a college schedule (attending classes some days and doing assignments at home other days). I currently (2011-2012) have three children attending and all of them are learning the basics plus Christian values. My children are ahead of their peers in reading and phonics (especially since a lot of schools don't teach true phonics anymore). If you want your kids to have smaller classes and committed teachers this is the school for you.

If you are looking for a school that will provide your child with the academic foundation to succeed this school should be placed on the very bottom of your list. I attended this school and still find myself, years later, struggling to catch up to my peers. This school has a myriad of problems. This school cannot offer AP courses of any kind. Their math track lags far behind the average, maxing out at Pre-calc. This level of math is not high enough for a child to compete against students their own age especially in the more challenging fields of study, such as math, engineering, economics, science, and medicine. If the goal of paying for an education is to give your child an advantage in life your money would be better spent elsewhere.

CLA has a strong academic program and is based on sound biblical teachings. The children at this school are well-mannered, thoughtful and able to think things through for themselves.
