What we believe about education
Crown of Life Christian Academy's mission is to ``know Christ and to make Christ known.`` This mission was laid upon the hearts of the congregation of Crown of Life Lutheran Church as they began to recognize a need for affordable Christian education within the Fort Myers community. In 2005, our school building was dedicated and our doors opened to the start of our preschool. Since then, we have grown each year, equipping young hearts and minds academically, socially, and spiritually from 2 year olds up through 5th grade!
We believe in a Christ-centered environment and education with affordable tuition for all students and utilize Step Up For Students scholarships for elementary students.
COLCA uses the best educational practices to provide the highest quality of instruction in a multi-grade classroom structure.
With a low student-to-teacher ratio that ensures individualized education and freedom to incorporate learning standards without high-stakes testing.
