Student Enrichment


SouthLake Christian Academy offers much more than an academic experience. Students explore and discover new interests and ideas by becoming involved in student life outside of the classroom. SouthLake Christian Academy is a place of possibilities; a home to artists, musicians, thespians, athletes, writers, scientists and student leaders. We celebrate the diversity of each individual student, their talents and the richness it brings both to our school and community. SouthLake Christian Academy is a place that challenges its students to stretch, to reach outside of themselves, to learn about their community and their world through serving others.

"...We are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." II Corinthians 10:5

"The Mission of SouthLake Christian Academy is twofold. The first is to assist the Christian family by providing an education marked by a biblical worldview, academic excellence and affordability so that students are equipped to be salt and light for God's glory. The second is evangelical in scope, to present God's Word and biblical worldview daily to non-believers with the promise of God's redemptive plan, to be a force and voice for Jesus Christ that will resonate throughout non-believing families."
