“CLA nurtures and strengthens each child's foundation of academic excellence, creativity, independence, and integrity in a culturally enriched community."
Students Love our School. Parents Love Our Results.
Creative Learning Academy is the preeminent college-preparatory school for preschool through 8th grade students. CLA is accredited by the SACS-CASI, Florida Council of Independent Schools, and the Florida Kindergarten Council. 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.
CLA faculty are dedicated, caring, and well qualified. Each teacher instructs in his/her educational field of study. Our Preprimary Program is led by Montessori certified teachers.
Extracurricular activities at CLA include basketball, volleyball, voice lessons, Bricks for kids, and Bridge Club.

As a leading college-preparatory school in Pensacola, CLA strives to enroll a maximum of 16 students in each preprimary class, a maximum of 20 students in Lower School classes (kindergarten through fourth grade) and 22 in middle school (5th-8th grade) classes.
Need-based financial aid is available to students each year. It is our intent that no qualified student will be denied a CLA education simply based on financial considerations.
