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. Our goal is to prepare our students to be successful in college and in life. We hold our students and staff accountable to an unwaveringly high standard of excellence. Our teachers work hard to guarantee success by providing a loving and nurturing environment in which our students receive the support they need to be successful.

The Arts department produces stellar productions and opportunities for students to shine in art, drama, and music.

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!
