Christian Liberty Academy was founded in 1968 by Dr. Paul Lindstrom (1939-2002) in order that children may have greater access to quality Christian Education. The academy programs, beginning at pre-school level and continuing through twelfth grade, are under the direction of board members from the Church of Christian Liberty. The Church of Christian Liberty provides oversight for the Academy as one of its ministries, though students and parents are not required to be members or attend the church. The student body at Christian Liberty Academy is made up of children who attend a variety of Christian churches from throughout the Chicagoland area.
By God's grace, CLA has been able to establish an excellent reputation over the last forty-four years, becoming a preeminent Bible-based traditional education Christian school in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Christian Liberty Academy is an institution that is dedicated to equipping its students to face the spiritual and academic challenges that will confront them at college, their careers and throughout their lives.
The Academy possesses rigorous academic standards, and employs instructors who have the ability to ensure that each student reaches their full potential. All classes are taught from a biblical perspective, so students will understand how to apply God's Word to every area of life as they seek to build the Kingdom of Christ.
