              Christian Life Academy uses the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum or more commonly known as the PACE system. The ACE curriculum is a mastery based-independent study program where each student is dealt with n an individual basis. Upon acceptance to CLA each student is given a diagnostic test which will determine learning gaps and srudents perfromance levels within the different subject levels. Student work at their own rate of comprehension, however, a complete year of work must be completed before students are promoted to the next grade level. 

            Christian Life Academy supplements its paper curriculum with many on-line and technological classes. Students from Kindergarden and up are required to attend a foreign language class as well as 6 hours or more on computer courses which ranges from Microsoft Office to programming to Personal Finances depending on the grade.             


Progress Reports

        The grading system of our school is designed to give parents a true indication of the student's progress or lack thereof 

  • 94%-100% = A
  • 88%-93%   = B
  • 85%-87%   = C

         Progress reports are issued to parents the following week of the end of each 9-weeks period. Please see yearly calendar for exact dates. The report is placed in an envelope which is to be signed by the parent and returned to the shcool promptly. Grades are based on successfully completed PACEs. Students will be promoted upon the completion of one year's work.


Taking a Test

          After a PACE is completed, scored, studied, and a passing grade is received on the self-test; the student will test the following morning. Tests are administered at the testing table where there will be absolute no communication of any kind accepted. A student must receive permission to leave the testing table. The student and parent will be notified of the test grade the following Monday mornig with a Congratulation slip.

Congratulation Slip

          Students receive a Congratulation Slip and a corresponding colored star every Tuesday morning. These slipes should be taken home to parents.


Progress Charts 

          Students are issued a corresponding colored star matching the subject upon completion of a test. These stars are placed on the Progress Chart for parents, students, and supervisors to keep tract of individual progress being made.
