What Makes CLA Unique?
COMBINING CLASSROOM AND AT-HOME LEARNING
We are an educational model that combines classroom and at-home learning. The best of both worlds. This result is a well-balanced education tailored to the student’s individual needs.[
Our heart is to provide help to those parents desiring to be involved in the education of their children. Parents of every educational background can teach their children with the help of CLA. Teaching a student may seem intimidating to those without experience, but parents only need to care about their children to be able to instruct them. You can depend on the teacher’s lesson plans. Parents can be involved in an academic program with the child(ren) and still enjoy a high level of support and accountability in the process
FOCUS ON LEADERSHIP
Our unique Leadership Program focuses on ten Leadership qualities that help to produce a generation of Godly leaders that will affect our homes, our communities and our world. Not only are students taught and trained in the character traits of godly leaders, but they are also given opportunities to practice these leadership skills in service projects that they themselves plan and execute. Along the way, students are also coached in habits that make leaders highly effective in what they do.
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SCHOOL?
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
We started with a bold new vision, and saw an idea whose time had come.
We challenged the boundaries of the status quo, and looked for innovative solutions to meet the academic and nurturing needs of today’s busy families.
We explored the natural connection between church, school and home and discovered an exciting, new, more effective way to weave these ancient pillars of community together.
We took the best of home schooling and group schooling and created a new educational model that gives parents the ability to be involved in an academic program with the child(ren), and still enjoy a high level of support and accountability in the process. We have added in program options to make sure that any family, regardless of finances and work schedules, can participate in and enjoy the benefits of this educational community.
We call it Community Leadership Academy!
