Congratulations Lizzie Lepley – Kentucky Derby Museum Horsing Around with Art Contest Grand Prize Winner!
This past week Christian Academy of Louisville – English Station senior Lizzie Lepley was honored as the grand prize winner of the Kentucky Derby Museum Horsing Around with Art Contest! Lizzie was surprised in class through Zoom with the news.
Lizzie’s work features all 146 Derby winners surrounding the Twin Spires! She spent months researching each winning horse to draw them accurately. You’ll even notice the Triple Crown winners have a flower by their mane. WOW! Way to go Lizzie! We are so proud!
Lizzie’s work will be on display in the Kentucky Derby Museum until next year!
We are so excited to highlight one of our own students as one of the youngest business owners in our area! Christian Academy of Louisville – Southwest eighth-grader Kayla Marie opened Bubbly Bliss Bar at 2110 Bardstown Road in December and has proved that nothing is impossible with faith and hard work!
Bubbly Bliss Bar by Kayla Marie features a wide variety of all natural bath, beauty and wellness products including candles, teas, cosmetics, bath bombs, soaps and even a men’s grooming line. The store aims to be a happy place for customers. It smells amazing and Kayla herself curates the store’s playlist to feature uplifting music.
After losing her father suddenly in 2015, Kayla was overcome with sadness and anxiety. She leaned on her faith and turned to the things she loved doing to find happiness – making and mixing things, baking and being creative. That’s how the business was born!
Happy New Year! We have much to be thankful for this year, from the celebration of Christ’s birth, the start of a new year and the gift of partnership with your family through the Christian education of your children.
The start of a new year initiates our reenrollment process. Children who currently attend Christian Academy, junior academy through 11th grades (with the exception of JA-4 entering kindergarten), who will be returning for next school year must reenroll in January. The reenrollment deadline for the 2021-2022 school year is January 20, 2021. Reenrolling by this deadline is always very important, especially this year as we have been blessed with many families wanting to join us next year. We want to continue to serve your family and would not want you to lose your spot, as immediately after reenrollment we will begin placement of new families seeking to enroll their children at Christian Academy.
To begin the reenrollment process, simply follow the instructions below.

For us the birth of Jesus changes everything. As John wrote, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” (John 1:14 ESV). It is this Jesus we want your children to know intimately prior to graduation. We thank you for your trust and continued partnership as we work diligently to ensure every child at Christian Academy is supported unconditionally in a grace-filled environment and develops according to God’s will to impact the world for His glory and Kingdom.
We have masks instead of costumes, a classroom instead of a stage, but we are worshiping and celebrating the same Savior!

We are so blessed to be able to share our Christmas program with you through a virtual platform. Please click above to watch the program at any time. You are also welcome to share this link with family and friends. We are so thankful that God worked out all of the details for us to be able to record this program before our switch to Remote Learning.
- Thank you to Mrs. Kristi Stivers for her dedication and determination in making sure that our students would still be able to have their Christmas program, especially during this difficult year!
- Thank you to the Technical Team at Southeast Christian Church – Southwest Campus for the hours spent recording and editing the program.
- Thank you to Mrs. Tonya Morgan for her generosity of time, talent and resources to make over 100 Christmas face masks for our students to wear during the recording.
- Thank you to our Southwest Elementary students and 8th grade students for using their God-given talents to provide this special time of worship and Christmas celebration.
Glory to God for the gift of His Son – our Savior, Jesus Christ!
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6
Thank you for all you do for our school. As you have heard many times, the cost of tuition and fees simply does NOT cover the entire cost to educate our students. That is why we have an annual campaign called our ALL IN! campaign and this year has been like no other in our history. We need your help more than ever before to raise the resources needed to operate our schools. The reason we have a $400,000 need is because we strive to keep tuition costs reasonable and affordable to ALL IN! our community.
As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please think about all the great teachers we have across all our campuses. Here is an example from our Indiana Campus, Kristi Richards.
“She has gone WAY above and beyond duty to make sure the students can benefit from special area classes. She comes up with unique ways and systems to make things work for the kids. Because of their traveling nature, they are exposed to more students and are at more of a health risk in these times. I really truly admire the huge effort she has made on behalf of our kids!”
Thank you and God bless you and our school!

As you think about how your family will participate in this year’s ALL IN! campaign, please think about all the great teachers we have across all our campuses. Here is just one example, Morgan Longtine at our English Station Campus.
“Morgan is an exceptional teacher in every way. She was my student teacher six years ago, and I could tell from the first day that this girl was born to be a teacher. Everything came so naturally to her! Morgan has now been my teammate for five years and she is definitely a team player! She offers to help quickly, she carries more than her share of the load and she shares all her wonderful ideas willingly. As a teacher, she is everything a student needs and a parent wants. Morgan is intelligent and compassionate. She is a whiz with technology and makes things relevant to her students. She goes over and above to craft fun, engaging lessons, and she does everything with a sense of excellence. Above all else she has a heart for God and a desire to lead all her students to know and love Him more. Her greatest desire is to infuse biblical truths into her everyday conversations with her students and others, so they will grow closer to God and serve Him well. This year, she was asked to teach the Virtual Academy, had only three weeks of preparation, and has done a beautiful job getting it up and running smoothly since the start. Her technology skills, combined with the understanding of how to deliver quality instruction to her online students, makes her the perfect choice for this new position. If you truly want to have someone who is ALL IN! for Christian Academy, you need to look no further than Miss Morgan Longtine.”
Thank you and God bless you and our school!
