School Profile

Since 1968 Christian Liberty Academy has sought to partner with parents, in the education of their children. We believe that the job of the school is not to take over the duties of parents, but to support and assist them in carrying out their God-given responsibility to educate their children according to the Word of God. Christian Liberty Academy provides educational opportunities for Pre-School through 12th grade. We seek to not only challenge children academically, but to also prepare them to be thinking disciples.

Student Opportunities

Christian Liberty Academy provides co-curricular opportunities for the student body, including sports teams, music, clubs and group activities. Students grow spiritually through participation in mentoring, small group Bible studies, chapel speaking, leading worship and many service opportunities.

We also offer strong programs in fine arts including art history & instruction, choir, band, kinderstrings, private lessons, theater, drama jr, and improv. Additionally, we offer culinary arts, sewing, auto shop, and wood shop.
