Effective education for all ages
Christian Ministries Academy (CMA) was established in 1980 in Hot Springs, Arkansas as a place to train young people to be leaders in their community. It is a place designed for Christian families who desire to grow in their walk with the Lord and excel in academics. CMA has continued to be effective in Hot Springs, AR and in Billings, Missouri. At the launch of Christian Ministries Church in Houston, CMA Houston began with 8 students and continues to grow each year.
CMA is dedicated to fostering education influenced by Charlotte Mason’s educational thought and practice. We seek to build and serve a community of parents, teachers, and students by providing a life growing education. A growing education empowers students to develop lives rich in relationship with God, self, others, work, and their community. Christian Ministries is dedicated to equipping the saints through all ages and stages of life.
CMA uses a combination of approaches as we interact with each student. We follow a traditional academic school year September - May. The school year is divided into trimesters (Sept-Nov, Nov-March, March-May). The weekly structure is Monday - Thursday from 9A - 2P consisting of primary core classes, along with electives like Spanish, cooking, music, wood shop, lego structures, strategy games, and gardening. On Friday's, students have home assignments to complete.
"There is no education, but self-education."
