In regards to all the other schools in our area, LCA is by FAR superior. Not only in class sizes but in the fact that we are an all in one school Pre K to 12th grade. No other educational organization offers this in the Duluth area. We also have licensed qualified teachers and leaders that have experience in education unlike the charter schools and or other private schools in our area as well!
