As a teacher, I may be biased, but having taught public school for thirty years, let me say this is a breath of fresh air. The high schoolers thank me when I pass out work (even tests!), and I get to pray in class.....what a new experience! The school has been accommodating to me in every request I've made, and I could not ask for a better teaching environment. The students are bright, inquisitive, and just a joy to teach. LCA is not perfect, but if I were a parent considering a Christian environment for my son or daughter, was looking for teachers who are able to be creative in their teaching without being strangled by administrative and governmental regulations, this would be the place. It`s expensive, but kids leaving LCA are way, way ahead of most of their public school peers. And, as a plus, they pick up character along the way, instead of losing it.

I have gone to lca since 6th grade and it has had a huge impact on my life. The Christ centered atmosphere help against bullying as well as ensures good teachers. Lca is a great choice for any kid to grow up in. So many opportunities

Our daughter started LCA when she was 3. Our family thought LCA would be a sweet foundation and planned to transition our daughter to public school starting with Kindergarten. What we discovered after just a couple of years is that we could not imagine our daughter attending any other school than LCA. We fell in love with the teachers, the environment, and the curriculum. 10 years later, we still feel the same. While at LCA, our daughter has taken advanced courses, joined the Beta Club, participated in band, drama, dance, and cheerleading, and experienced her first mission trip. It's rare to find a school that offers a child so many opportunities to explore their interests and talents. We have been blessed by talented, caring teachers, coaches, and youth leaders. We are so thankful we chose to remain with LCA all of these years.

As I watch my children go through college, I reflect back on their time and education at LCA. They were academically ready, as shown by my oldest child's experience in a college English class. After the first paper was written, the professor called my child up to the desk and asked where my child attended high school. When the answer was LCA, the professor said "I can tell in your writing, it's excellent". Just a small example of the quality education LCA provides, not just high school, but from preschool - 12th grade. Chapel every week, Bible classes every day. Not just the spirit of Christ, but also the theology of the Bible. The quality you receive for the money invested is truly a blessing from God.

LCA is a top notch school both for academics and for Spirituality. It has as its central mission: To Glorify God. Teachers are degreed and certified all the way down to preschool! Graduates last year were offered in excess of $7 million in college scholarships! 100% of the seniors graduated and went to college. LCA hosts a wide variety of programs and activities for all ages including Robotics, Academic team, youth sports, intramurals, 17 competitive sports, four club sports, a vibrant chorus ministry all in a loving a nurturing environment. The campuses are immaculate and very safe. Preschool here is fantastic! The kids even have IPADS! If you want your child in a safe, clean, warm and loving environment, this is your school. It is a bargain for all that you get! Be an EAGLE!

As new parents at LCA, we are very pleased. The classrooms are clean and organized, the staff and teachers are involved with the academics and spiritual growth of our son. We are greeted with a friendly face each and every morning. The academics are challenging but most of all, our son now loves to pray. You can learn math and spelling anywhere, but to build a relationship in a Christ- like environment is very priceless to our family. Thanks LCA!
