Middle School


Middle schoolers at CLA are part of a safe and nurturing community. Team building and servant leadership are woven throughout the curriculum. We recognize the unique learning styles of 7th & 8th graders, and offer an environment where students are able to succeed. Individualized attention and a focus on discipleship empower students as they develop into mature learners for the 21st century.
