Excel Christian Academy opened its doors as Lake Wire Christian Academy in 1974 with a single preschool class and has since grown to a community of more than 400 students, from infants to high school seniors. Excel Christian Academy is a ministry of Free Life Chapel, and under its dedicated and inspiring leadership, has high hopes and great vision for the future in “Pursuing Excellence with Honor.”
At Excel Christian Academy, the emphasis is for each child to realize his or her God-given potential, developing confidence and self-awareness, creativity and curiosity, and a deep understanding of community and connectedness to others.
A robust, well-rounded curriculum with talented and engaging teachers and an energetic and diverse peer group provides students endless opportunities to discover their passions and talents.
Our commitment to the core values of Creativity, Honor, Diversity, Excellence, and Generosity ensures the social/emotional, academic, physical and spiritual needs of each child are met.
Students, faculty and staff in the Excel community thrive in a culture of high academic expectations through rigorous learning experiences and professional development opportunities.
Every Excel student and staff will take the lead academically, spiritually, socially, artistically and physically.
We exist to develop strong positive connections with students so they can build confidence, independence, gain academic mastery, realize a personal relationship with Christ and Biblically respond to culture.
