On behalf of Candlelight Christian Academy we would like to take a few moments to introduce you to our school. We are a small, private Kindergarten through 12th grade school located in downtown Lake Wales.
Candlelight offers students a warm, caring, family atmosphere where individualized learning is emphasized. Each student is challenged and encouraged to grow according to their strengths. We provide a caring staff of teachers and support personnel who are all committed to giving your child the best academic, social, physical, and most importantly spiritual environment possible.
While we do follow the Sunshine State Standards, we also believe that it is very important to teach our children to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, and responsible members of a community. This is accomplished at Candlelight in a variety of ways. We offer project based learning opportunities where children are engaged in projects of interest that help them build a strong connection between the skills and strategies taught in the classroom and the real world. We have multiple age classrooms to give students an opportunity to get extra help they need and reach beyond where they are to more challenging goals.
We have a sports program that includes volleyball, basketball, swimming, flag football and this coming school year we are hoping to offer tennis and golf! We also have a music program where students in middle school and high school can choose music as an elective and learn fundamentals of the key board and drums. Participation in the worship team is also an option for middle and high school students –there are a variety of ways to participate and develop gifts and interests.
As you consider the educational options for your child’s personal needs, we would be honored if you would consider Candlelight among your choices. Please contact our school office to make an appointment at 863-676-0049 or email one of our administrators.
May God Richly Bless You,
Candlelight Christian Academy
