Vision and Mission

“Christ, changing lives to change the world!”

The mission of Christian Life Academy is to present Jesus Christ as the focus of all truth through excellent academics, wholesome extra-curricular activities and as a foundation for all relationships.


Christian Life Fellowship opened its doors in 1976, and the Academy began in 1981 with grades 7 through 10. The following year grades Kindergarten through 12 were available. Today Christian Life Academy is a comprehensive school offering a quality college-preparatory education in a Christian atmosphere. Christian Life Academy provides for grades PS-12, including a nursery and daycare.

The campus is located on 55 beautifully wooded acres in south Baton Rouge off of Perkins Road. The campus has space devoted to administrative offices, classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, a gymnasium, three athletic fields, field houses, and nursery and daycare facilities. Specialized facilities include art rooms, choir room, band room, theatrical stage, computer lab, labs for Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, elementary science lab, locker rooms and weight training rooms.
