Our vision of Churchland Academy Elementary is a community of learning where staff maintains a strong focus on academic achievement and students are expected to meet high expectations. Our students are considered to be a precious resource and our role is nurturing them to develop to their fullest potential.  The staff of Churchland Academy is attentive to the individual learning styles of each student and endeavors to accommodate the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical differences of each student.
We envision our administration and staff working efficiently and collaboratively to provide a climate that promotes academic achievement in a safe, secure, nurturing environment supported by a partnership among students, sensitive and professional staff, supportive families and community. 

we believe

  • We believe all students have the ability to learn, achieve, and be successful.
  • We believe students learn best in a safe, caring and structured environment that promotes student learning.
  • We believe a variety of instructional practices incorporated in an integrated curriculum will address the diverse learning styles of our students.
  • We believe students must maintain good attendance to promote academic excellence.
  • We believe a quality education, continuous improvements, and positive communications, are the shared responsibility of all stakeholders (school staff, parents, and community).
