Admissions and Enrollment

As a “nurturing” Christian school, Christian Life Academy seeks to admit students of parents who will support the school’s mission and educational philosophy. CLA assists parents in fulfilling this God-given responsibility to train and educate their children. The faculty challenges each student to achieve his or her greatest potential.

The Enrollment Process

  • Families are encouraged to visit CLA for a tour. Parents and students are welcome to spend time observing in our classrooms. This is often the most important part of the enrollment process.
  • An application for each student must be completed and received by the school office accompanied by academic records and a check for the registration fee.
  • Once the school has received the application, academic records and the registration fee, we will contact you to set up a family interview.
  • Upon completion of the interview and any required admission screening, families are notified regarding their acceptance into CLA.
  • Enrolled families receive a statement from our business office detailing the terms of your tuition based on the plan you have selected.
