Anybody remember Christian Life Academy?

Ive heard it was a really terrible school at some points and a really great school at other points putting out tremendous talent.

Once they closed down, where do you think the people who went there, now send their kids? What private/public schools are in that area?

I went for a summer when I failed a semester of Spanish 2 in high school. On the first day the teacher asked how many are here for Spanish 1. Most of the class raised their hands. He said ok I'm just gonna teach Spanish 1 and you guys here from Spanish 2 can complain or just go along with it and get your credit.Nobody complained.

The few people I know who went there lived no where near there

However, the Family Christian Academy is not that far, neither is Dunham - and perhaps St. Aloysius for elementary?

Just sitting around and sincerely concerned where kids went??
Ok, I will take a stab. I would guess one of the many public or private schools in BR, some may have decided to homeschool. Hope this helps you sleep tonight.

They had a lot of great athletes: Lefors, Jasmine, Clayton, White, Galloway, and many others. They were one of the only BR private schools trashier and less concerned with academics than Parkview during their existence. If you’re from the New Orleans area they are the equivalent of École

If they are want to send their kids to a similar school the only one comparable I can think of is Family Christian Academy. Maybe Parkview Baptist.

Church wouldn't allow devil dances. Not even a "leave room for the holy ghost" kind of dance.

We could derail the summer school class any time by coaxing the teacher into an argument over evolution or whatever topics trigger fundamentalist. He would go into a tirade that would last the hour. It was then I realized how lucky I was to go to a good private school and stop fricking around.

To be fair, we could do this with a lot of our public school teachers too.
