Creative Learning Academy's Full Profile



Creative Learning Academy says

Creative Learning Academy (CLA) was founded in 1972 as a Montessori program for young children and has since grown into a preprimary through eighth grade co-educational day school. Our mission is to provide students with a strong foundation of academic excellence, creativity, and integrity. Our philosophy is to achieve and maintain, in an academic balance, two specific educational goals - academic excellence and individual potential, recognizing and encouraging the best in each student. We educate not only with respect to academic growth and achievement, but also in the areas of athletics, fine arts, community service, and extra-curricular activities. Our vision is to provide each student the opportunity to achieve academic excellence in preparation for higher education and to instill in him/her a strong sense of morality, values and social responsibility. Fundamental guiding principles include small class sizes, a personalized approach, high academic standards, creative teaching strategies, a full menu of arts and activities, and strong parental involvement.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
