Mission and Philosophy


Champion Christian Learning Academy (CCLA) was birthed to make sure students experience learning and loving at every age. Current research has shown that the early years (ages 0-5) are the most sensitive and critical for brain development. Over 90% of the brain growth occurs during this period. This is the period of the development of senses, development of language and communication skills, and the development of social and emotional skills. After several years in the classroom and seeing a continuum of students simply not being ready for school or not having a passion and love for learning, CCLA’s director decided to create a program that engages children at the beginning of brain development. CCLA strives to not only prepare children for life long learning, but we also love on the children so that they grow a love for learning and growing. We keep Jesus at the center and mold our learners into life long Champions.
