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.


The mission of Champion Christian Learning Academy is to foster the love of learning and lay the groundwork for success at the school age level. CCLA provides stimulating early learning  experiences that promote social/emotional, physical and cognitive development. We are committed to the families we serve, providing support and encouragement.

About the Director

Cynthia Evans is a native of Louisiana, but she has been a Chattanooga resident for almost 11 years. She received a B.A in Education and a Masters in Supervision and Curriculum from Louisiana State University in Shreveport. Having over 15 years of experience in Education, she has served as classroom teacher, literacy leader, reading interventionist, daycare consultant, and now Director of Champion Christian Learning Academy.  Cynthia has been married for 10 years to Shon Evans, Sr. and together they have 4 children: Bayleigh Kamille, Rhyan Olivia, Shon Chase and Jaxson Cole.


Champion Christian Leaning Academy believes that ALL children deserve the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, encouraging environment. We believe that because of the mandates on school aged children, they need to go to school prepared.  We believe learning happens through positive relationships, exploration, experiences and sense of belonging.


We believe that children are capable of complex thinking and we encourage it. We are committed to program planning, in which activities “emerge” based on ideas and interests from both children and staff.  CCLA provides personalized and developmentally appropriate programs for infants, toddlers, preschool, and pre-Kindergarteners.
