Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg (CAL) is a private, non-denominational,
non-profit CHRISTIAN school which came into being in 1996
as a cooperative effort of Anderson Christian Church, Lawrenceburg
United Methodist Church and other interested parties. It
began with grades preschool through 6, adding grades 7 &
8 the next year, and in 1998 the high school was added.
We graduated our first senior class in 2002.
CAL, a member Association of Christian Schools International
(ACSI), is now located at 126 North Main Street. Our gift from God became our new school home August 2012. In addition to excellent instructional
faculty and administrative staff, CAL is directed by a Board
of Directors made up of community leaders. The chairman of the board is elected
from among the board members.
CAL is dedicated to excellence, not only in scholarship,
but in enhancing the Christian education already taught
in our homes and churches. K-12 class sizes are small with a
maximum student to teacher ratio of 18 (preschool ratio
is 10 for 2 year olds and 15 for 3 & 4 year olds). Our students' test scores rank significantly above
national averages on national scholastic testing each year.
