- At the core of our educational leadership role is our mission: Lancaster Christian Academy`s mission is to make Jesus famous in the lives of our students and for our students to make Jesus famous within their realm of influence in the city, the state, the country, and around the world.While we certainly supersede and rank above the state educationally, our school blends the need for academic, social, emotional, mental, and spiritual development. Our program intentionally seeks out opportunities for students to grow holistically, and we find greater success in the realm of academics when students are thriving in all aspects of their development. Our bible classes and chapels center around relevant, age-appropriate topics in a setting that is fun and relatable to both children and teens respectively. We are consistently looking for windows of opportunity and teachable moments in hopes to point the students to Jesus!We are a college preparatory school. This means that the goal of preparing our students to be successful in college and in life is central to our academic program. As such, we hold our students and teachers accountable to an unwavering high standard of excellence. Our teachers work hard to guarantee success providing a loving and nurturing environment in which our students receive the support they need to be successful.Not only are we known for academic excellence (especially with our high ACT scores), but we are also known for our national championship winning sports teams. Our athletic department offers a variety of opportunities to children as young as kindergarten, and we have been very successful in sending student athletes to Christian colleges on athletic scholarships. Our arts department never disappoints in bringing stellar productions and opportunities for students to shine in art, drama, and music. If your child plays an instrument, we would love to have them be a part of our chapel band. Investigating the unique programs and exceptional opportunities offered within the realm of private Christian education can be very exciting. We hope to be able to meet and speak with you about Lancaster Christian Academy! Our friendly staff are here to serve you, and we hope that you will join our eclectic school community. It is our desire that you will find our environment to be joyful, academically challenging, and ultimately a fun place where kids of all ages grow in the Lord!

My daughter currently attends LCA and my son graduated from there. They have amazing teachers who really care about my children. You will not find a better school that emphasizes education and Christ on the same level. They produce exceptional students who love the Lord!

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!
