Christian Liberty Academy High School Profile

ACSI Logo   Christian Liberty Academy has for the last 46 years 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.
