CLC Mustangs

Our School

The Christian Learning Center (CLC) was founded in 2000, by Mr. Harold Kraft. 

“To educate and encourage students to live a Christ-centered life; to impart necessary skills to meet the demands of an ever-changing world; and to develop mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical strengths so that each child may live up to his or her God-given talents in the surroundings of a stable, Christian school environment.”

We fulfill this mission by assisting Christian parents in performing their Biblical responsibility to “train up a child in the way he should go” and “bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Proverbs 22:6, Ephesians 6:4).  All subjects are taught from a Biblical worldview.  “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7).


  • We believe the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God.

  • We believe in the one eternal God, the Creator of all things, who exists in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was begotten by the Holy Spirit, was born of the Virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life.

  • We believe Jesus Christ gave His life on Calvary’s cross as a ransom for all, shed His precious blood, and was buried and rose again the third day. 

  • We believe the only means of being cleansed from sin is through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ and obedience to His Word.

  • We believe both the saved and lost will be resurrected: the saved unto eternal life and the lost unto eternal damnation.

  • We believe the Ten Commandments given by God should be the foundation of Christian Learning Center.


  • Our purpose is to provide a high quality education in a positive supportive environment to families looking to make a long-term commitment to Christian Education. 

  • We offer Preschool - 12th grade in a traditional classroom environment.   

  • We hold classes four days a week (Mon. – Thurs.) from 8:00am – 3:45pm. 

  • Pre-school is held from 12:00 P.M. to 2:30 P.M. on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

  • K-4 class is held in the afternoon from 1:30 P.M. to 4:10 P.M., on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. 

  • K-5 class is held in the morning from 8:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M., Monday through Thursday.  (Students must be five years of age before September 1st of the year to enroll for K-5.)

  • Our High School seniors have the option of taking concurrent classes at Fort Scott Community College.


  • Our textbooks are produced by leading national publishers including: Abeka and BJU Press. 

  • Our focus is to build the traditional core skills (reading, writing, language, and arithmetic) while balancing the use of technology, group, and project based learning to ensure our students are prepared to pursue the career of their choice. 

  • We offer the nationally recognized Iowa Achievement Test to monitor academic progress.

CLC has been blessed with a top notch facility including: 

  • a climate controlled gymnasium

  • a large playground

School requires a lot of hard work, but it is also a time for young people to have fun and be active.    We offer extra-curricular academic and sports programs.  Our junior high and varsity sports teams compete in the MOKAN private school conference.  Through competition we teach essential life-skills like teamwork and sportsmanship.  Students develop important character traits as they are tested in the intensity of competition.   








Students must maintain an overall C average and must have a passing grade in each class to be eligible for extra-curricular activities.

​The ingredients for a successful school include many things, such as talented teachers, challenging curriculum, and motivated students.  However, there are two key factors that are commonly overlooked. 

  1. The first is an up-lifting environment.  We teach and coach our students to encourage and support each other and to eliminate behaviors that tear others down.  A positive environment allows students to focus on learning instead of worrying about who will be “picking on” or “bullying” them.

  2. The second factor is parent support.  When Mom and Dad support the school and stand behind the teacher, children respond with great classroom productivity.
