School Reviews

  • Recommended April 10, 2012 - Excellent educational oppurtunity. My children went as charter students back in the 80's. They went on to further their private education and were readily sought after. All three have been very successfull and I attribute that to LCA. Thanks LCA. Alan Baker - Posted by Parent
