From understanding historical events to exploring the wonders of science, our elementary students recognize God's guiding hand in every aspect of learning. Memory verses and Bible stories become tools for character building, helping students navigate challenges with faith and wisdom. Most importantly, students learn to trust Scripture as the source of all truth and the foundation for their lives.

MAP Testing

At CrossLife Christian Academy, we take pride in our commitment to high academic standards.

Three times a year, our students participate in MAP testing – a rigorous assessment that measures their knowledge and skills in math, reading, and language usage. 

Regular MAP testing is not just valuable as a measurement of our students’ progress compared to others but is, most importantly, a tool that allows us to focus on specific areas of growth in individual students during the course of the year and throughout their elementary education. Teachers use the information gleaned from their students’ MAP reports to fine-tune their instructional methods for optimal individualized learning, ensuring we address the unique needs of each student. 

CrossLife teachers are committed to nurturing well-rounded, academically proficient students within a Christ-centered educational environment. We are not just educating children; we are shaping future leaders and thinkers grounded in Christian values.

Your child can learn, lead, and live courageously.
