CHRISTIAN LIFE ACADEMY FOUNDERS
The normal purpose of a school for a society's children is to educate and equip them to be productive members of that society. The purpose of this Christian school is to make sure that what is being taught is based in the reality and guidelines of God's inspired Word and not in the agenda of a society that has turned away from God. Christian Life Academy is such a school. We strive for excellence in education based in the purity of the wonderful Word of God. Our prayer is that CLA is a blessing to our community, and that its students will impact this world for the better as they follow Jesus Christ.
Pastor Joe & Jessica Campetella
Christian Life Academy (CLA) was founded in 2022 by Christian Life Center, a church that has been ministering to Flagler county for over three decades. CLA opened its doors under the vision and direction of Pastor Joe Campetella and his wife, Jessica Campetella. The vision for CLA came from a burden to have a Christian school for the city of Palm Coast and surrounding areas.
At the end of 2022, Christian Life Center (CLC) moved to its new location at 5200 Belle Terre Parkway. As a result, CLA was able to expand as a school. Christian Life Academy is growing at a rapid rate due to the high demand from parents looking for academic alternatives to the public school system. CLA hopes to become one of the premier schools in Palm Coast, and we believe we are on track to attain this wonderful goal.
