Atmosphere, character, relationship, and education are important words at Lancaster Christian Academy.
LCA is an incredible new school located one block off of Murfreesboro Road in the heart of Smyma.
The Lancaster Christian Academy was founded with the objective of providing an excellent education in a Christian environment.
The school community where a child spends the greatest portion of their day is very important.
The result of a good contemporary Christian school is a place where the student can thrive and succeed in a loving, safe, and fun atmosphere.
LCA's environment fosters individuality, creativity, and self-esteem.
At Lancaster Christian Academy, the students are nurtured in an intimate setting while receiving an excellent education with Christian values.
Educationally, the school test two years above the national average.
The ages accepted are grades PRE-K through High School.
While education, test scores, and striving for academic excellence are certainly important priorities, the student's relationship in loving, knowing and following the Lord Jesus Christ is number one.
Next, because a child spends a good part of their life in school, the LCA atmosphere can be a place where Christian Values and Character are taught daily.
Lastly, because we represent the Lord Jesus Christ, the educational part of LCA is excellent.
Highly motivated Christian teachers, a nationally recognized accredited curriculum, and individual student attention are a daily part of LCA with a goal of our students being equipped to make an impact on future generations.
It is the purpose of Lancaster Christian Academy to have students grow up with a quality Biblical Education in a Christian Atmosphere that equips them to make successful life choices in their careers, communities, homes, and churches.

School Reviews

1 year ago
LCA, this school is absolutely nothing short of amazing! The faculty, staff, administration, coaches, and students are without doubt amongst the finest in the entire state. Our child has grown in numerous ways, academically, spiritually, as well as growing into a much more self-confident individual. We feel such as "relief," to know that throughout the school day, our child is being loved, nurtured, and educated in a superb manner. This experience certainly has God''s handprint completely covering it. To simply call LCA an amazing environment, would be an understatement for our family, personally! May the Lord continue to richly Bless Lancaster Christian Academy, as it so richly blessed our entire family this year!
