My son attended school at Lake City Academy in recent years. He absolutely loved his teachers, and made lifelong friends amongst his peers. LCA provides a wholesome Christian based education, including rigorous academics, physical education, music instruction, and library class time. There's also a variety of extracurricular sports available, including, softball, soccer, basketball, and volleyball. The school is small enough to provide the opportunity for every student to be known by name, by every teacher, school-wide, but large enough to deliver to each student a diverse community of fellow elementary and middle school aged learners.
