Required Reading​​

Additionally, before beginning the application for admission, we ask that both parents read our Statement of Faith, as well as the following texts on Classical education and University Model® schooling. These readings give a thorough overview of both our philosophy and structure of education, and assist parents in determining if Commission would be the right fit for their family.

We would love for you to come explore our beautiful facilities. Visiting our campus is completely optional, but assists families and students to get a better picture of what an "on campus" day at CLA is like. Tours will resume January 2023! 


Apply to CLA

After prayerfully considering if Commission Leadership Academy is a fit for your family, we invite you to complete a new application for admission for each child planning to apply to CLA. A $90 non-refundable fee per student will be collected at the time of application. Participation in our virtual information session and reading required documents are a prerequisite for moving forward to this step. Parents will be asked to upload documents with test scores and grades for students grade levels above kindergarten, and/or our school will send a request for records to all previous schools attended by your child. 

Applying is easy using our CLA Online Application. We encourage families to apply online as it simplifies submission and provides parents a tool for tracking online the status of their admission after their application has been submitted. 

After submitting the application, you will be able to track online your admissions status at the school by logging in to your account. There you will be able to print the completed applications, monitor when the school receives supplemental application forms and, if necessary, reprint the supplemental forms.

Please complete our online application HERE.


Upon receipt of the student application fee, reading or math placement testing may be scheduled. Testing may be waived if prior year standardized test scores are provided and accepted by Commission Leadership Academy. Please note that placement testing is required for new students, current students who are not in good academic standing, and current students who desire advanced placement in math or English.


The final step of the admissions process is a family interview, which provides the opportunity for you to have any remaining questions answered, as well as allow the Admissions Committee the chance to get to know you and your family better. The Admissions Committee will consider all components of the admissions process and make a decision regarding your application. You will receive notification of the committee’s decision and instructions to complete the enrollment process if your student is admitted.
