Students Love Our School. Parents Love Our Results.

Creative Learning Academy is the preeminent college-preparatory program for preprimary 3 years old through 8th grade students in the Pensacola area. Our mission is to nurture and strengthen each child’s foundation of academic excellence, creativity, independence, and integrity in a culturally-enriched community.

The school curriculum is advanced, comprehensive, and enriched with music, art, technology, library science, physical education, and Spanish. There are additional courses in Middle School, such as geometry, health, creative writing, research skills, and yearbook. Many after school activities are also available.
