CMA is an academic ministry of the church focusing on spiritual, character, and academic development. It is a discipleship school geared toward training students for college or specific trades with a biblical worldview.
Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.
- Proverbs 22:6
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 has been one of the fastest growing ministry.
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 3 terms (Sept-Nov, Nov-March, March-May). The weekly structure is Monday - Thursday from 9A - 3P consisting of primary core classes, along with electives like Spanish, computer, cooking, music, shop, lego structures, strategy games, creative writing, and gardening. On Friday's, students are prepped for home assignments to complete independently. For High School grades, we offer a dual credit option available through Lone Star Community College.
"There is no education, but self-education."
