We at Christian Academy of Louisville believe that we are following God's plan and, thus, He has blessed us with success. High school students today struggle with determining their purpose in the world. Addressing this begins with helping students understand God's unique purpose for them and then providing them opportunities to pursue their potential. Our students have thrived because our focus is on aiding all students to develop their God-given talents.
This philosophy led to the development of the Schools of Biomedical Science and of the Arts, both of which have been recognized as among the best STEM and multi-arts programs in the country. Our science program teaches forensics and DNA testing while also integrating a missional worldview; thus, students can have an impact on others now and become world-changers later by applying their talents for a higher purpose. In addition to winning numerous awards, students in our School of the Arts have used their talents to raise money for veterans and children with cancer and for evangelical art shows in Europe.
Ultimately, 86% of Christian Academy graduates earn their college degrees in four or fewer years. Spiritually, 80% state their faith is as strong in college as it was when they graduated from CAL. Strong teacher-student relationships, a rigorous academic and Biblical curriculum, and an environment of supporting peers have resulted in the success of our school. Perhaps it is best summarized by a college admissions counselor who said, "Christian Academy students are not just prepared for college; they have a love for life!"
