It should be noted that academic achievement is limited only by one’s own ability, motivation, and dedication”.

Claiborne Academy was founded in 1969 by a group of citizens from throughout Claiborne Parish. Their goal was to provide a high quality, educational facility that parents will choose as to where to educate their children. Their goals included: a full service school facility including classrooms, gymnasium, football field and stadium, and complete lunchroom facilities. The founder’s objectives were to present students the opportunity to participate in the highest quality standards of academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities available. These goals and objectives are continuing to be met today. Beginning with the 1969-1970 school year, two campuses of CA existed with one being in Haynesville and one in Homer. Through the dedication and hard work of many individuals, the campus of Claiborne Academy was built in 1970 as its present location with the 1970-1971 school years being the initial year of operation. Through the ensuing years, many additions and improvements have been made to the original facility.
