SouthLake Christian Academy aims to fulfill its mission to educate and disciple students while pursuing three main objectives.

1. Relationships

We desire that SLCA students have a growing and vibrant relationship with Christ, as well as a caring relationship with their parents, teachers, and peers. These proper and authentic relationships aid and assist students in making right choices during their journey through the school years and throughout life in general.

2. Worldview

We desire that SLCA students develop a worldview that enables them to think Christianly, sifting all decisions through the grid of Scripture, thus inspiring the formation of inner convictions and values.

3. Objectives

We desire that SLCA students develop a genuine and heartfelt attitude of service that results in living for God and living for others, realizing that the ultimate goal of God’s grace is conformity to the image of Christ.

These three days are filled with class competitions, great food, skits from student government, refreshing times of worship and challenging messages from a guest speaker.
