Christian Life Academy provides an academically challenging program while providing individual support for students with special learning needs.

Elementary Program

The elementary program uses materials from the A Beka curriculum and Bob Jones University Press in most subject areas. Quality materials from a variety of publishers are also used as we continually seek the best educational tools available. In addition to the academic program students take music, art, PE and library classes weekly.
