Welcome to Community Leadership Academy!

At Community Leadership Academy, our vision is to develop the next generation of godly leaders. We do so by focusing on four pillars: moral excellence, academic excellence, community, and leadership development.

Community Leadership Academy is a non-denominational private Christian school located in Tallahassee, FL. A unique feature of CLA is that we see our role as a true partnership with parents, and we teach to the heart of the child. It is our aim to develop three loves in our students: a love of God, a love of learning, and a love of others. The integral involvement of parents in this endeavor makes all the difference in the world!

As both a parent and as a principal, I am blessed by the incredible atmosphere and community of families at CLA. Our students find CLA to be a safe and happy place where they love to learn. A challenging academic program produces students able to perform far above the national average on standardized tests. The rigorous program of academics, the practical method of developing leadership skills, and the spiritual mentoring provided by our teachers prepares our students for the rigors of the world they will meet.

We believe God has created each of our children with a purpose, with the ability to learn, and with a call to impact the world around them as a servant of Christ. Our students will be prepared to excel in the halls of higher learning and make a lasting impact on the world around them through the spirit of excellence and leadership they will exhibit.

We welcome you to visit our school and see for yourselves what CLA is all about.
