- LWA's Christ-centered curriculum takes His love beyond the chapel and into the classroom, incorporating Christ's love and learnings into every subject. LWA's curriculum includes proven learning programs A Beka, Saxon and Bob Jones that provide an intellectually and spiritually stimulating education preparing students for high school and beyond. LWA strongly believes in learning beyond the classroom and offers a variety of classes at every grade level and in preschool to stretch the body as well as the mind, including: physical education, art, drama, music, computers, musical theater and Spanish. Additionally, LWA's library, computer lab, and learning center work together to support non-classroom development and address various learning challenges. LWA recently moved into a new $3 million building on the campus of West County Community Church that provides the finest in classrooms, a full-sized gymnasium with elevated walking track, and a 150-seat chapel to the existing campus set on nearly 30 acres in Wildwood. LWA encourages a sense of family among students, faculty and parents that provides nurturing emotional support during students' critical growth years. The common denominator in all LWA families is a genuine desire to see their children raised in a safe, loving environment, based upon the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Tuition for 2- and 3-year old preschool ranges from $1,385 to $2,080 per year, 4/5 year old/Pre-K tuition ranges from $2,770 to $3,460 per year, and K-8 tuition is $5,760 per year

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
