School Notes:

LACS utilizes a variety of Christian publications such as ABeka, Bob Jones, and Basic Christian Education (BCE) to meet the curriculum needs of the school. Preschool through 8th grades are conducted in traditional classroom settings. 1st through 8th grade students are in combined classrooms (1st & 2nd, 3rd-5th, & 6th-8th). High school students use the Pace system from BCE and work at their own pace but are closely supervised & monitored by their teacher to ensure they stay on track. Each high school student has 3-week work goals which correspond with 3-week grading periods.
