We have absolutely loved our experience with Lexington Christian Academy. We are new to the school this year and they have gone out of their way to make us feel loved and welcomed, especially in the midst of all that's going on with the pandemic. Our daughter loves going to school, loves her teachers, and I feel confident they love her just as much. She is learning and growing so much-it's amazing to see her development. Her teachers post pictures throughout the week in a private app so that we can see all she's doing and learning. We have such a peace and feel wonderful about the education she's receiving, both academically and spiritually. Five starts, all the way, for LCA!!!!

We enrolled our kids in preschool at Lexington Christian Academy and were so happy we couldn`t imagine ever leaving. Despite our initial plans for them to attend public schools, after one year at LCA, we knew this is where we wanted them to graduate. For us, LCA goes way beyond providing a good education for our kids, it is helping instill a strong Christ-centered foundation in their lives. The love that surrounds my kids at LCA is evident at all levels. The teachers and staff get to know all of the students and go above and beyond to provide a happy and safe environment to learn. The greatest testament is probably that my kids love school and truly can`t wait to go every morning!

We have two children at LCA elementary and have been there for 4.5 years. Lexington Christian Academy provides my children with a challenging academic program that is also Christ-centered. I love seeing what my kids are learning in reading, math, history, language arts, and specials, and also hearing them talk to me about their faith, prayers, and overall bible knowledge. The teachers are encouraging and committed to being involved with the students and the parents. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is interested in an education that is both academically challenging and faith-based. Additionally, LCA has done a phenomenal job opening up during the COVID-19 pandemic and keeping our kids healthy and in the classroom.

We have been at LCA with our three children since 2012. Academically, our children have excelled and have always been met at the level of learning they needed. Spiritually, they have a strong foundation of the Bible and have been taught to have a relationship with Christ in all they do. They have learned discipline, respect, love and service. Any opportunity from sports to robotics to fine arts has been offered as an opportunity. It is a blessing to get to watch our children grow and learn with children from families of all different walks of life who share the same moral values. The teachers have a passion for learning and helping push the students to thrive not only academically, but grow to know Christ. These teachers don't just teach our children, but love them with all their hearts. All in all, our children are thriving because of LCA and we are so thankful for this school. We would confidently recommend LCA to anyone who considers a Christian education for their children.

Our family absolutely LOVES this school! We relocated from Pennsylvania so our daughter could attend this school through 12th grade. A quality Christ-centered education with advanced placement classes was so important to us. Most Christian schools where we moved from only went through 8th grade. We were faced with the decision to put our daughter in a public middle school which we did not want to do. Also, the education was nowhere near the superior education one receives at Lexington Christian Academy. The staff is absolutely amazing. The teaching staff goes above and beyond what is asked of them. The sports team and after-school activities are incredible! Attending this school is the BEST investment you could ever make in your child's future.

We couldn't be happier with our experience at LCA. As an alum and now a parent, I am comforted each day seeing how much every staff and teacher cares about my child. Walking my children into a school where everyone knows them by name is such a blessing. They are challenged both academically and spiritually. I look forward to many years to come!

I highly recommend LCA if you are seeking a christian education for your child in the central Kentucky area. As alumni, I look back at my time at LCA and know that it had a positive and profound impact on my future success professionally and personally. I have seen my children learn and grow in the enriching environment of LCA. We also like that in addition to a solid, christ centered education (our main priority), LCA also offers competitive sports opportunities, many clubs and fine arts activities, technology integration and amazing facilities. I definitely recommend going on a tour and speaking with their admissions staff.

As my husband and I were seeking a school for our daughter, we desired a program rooted in Christian faith but one which would also provide a strong academic foundation. We found both of these features and more at LCA. Our daughter thrived academically, grew in her faith, and participated in a variety of programs such as tennis, cheerleading, chorus, and missions. The teachers were knowledgeable and kind. They invested in my daughter, cared for her and encouraged her. She was very prepared for college. We are thankful for our time at LCA.

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!
