I am a parent of an incoming 6th grader and 3rd grader. Both have attending LCA since Preschool 3. My husband and I love the atmosphere that is provided for our children. They get to learn about God each day and in all subjects that are taught. The teachers genuinely care for the students as a whole not just in their academics. The classes are challenging and my children continually test higher than the average in the state. In high school, they will have an opportunity to earn college credits, play sports, and be involved in art, music drama and STEM activities. I am excited to see the changes that LCA is making this coming year to give their middle school an identity. The plans that the administration has shared with the parents look amazing, giving the kids a chance to be more involved in missions, community service, sports, and, of course, academics. This year, LCA has established a summer camp as a alternative to other summer childcare. My kids LOVE it. They had attended another summer camp in town for the past several years. And just last week, they told me that they like LCA's so much better because of the activities, counselors, and other students that they get to spend the summer with. My husband and I have made a commitment to our children's education and Liberty Christian Academy has given us a place for our children to thrive. We would encourage anyone who wants their children in a Christian environment and to receive challenging education to schedule a visit.

We have been so blessed to have our children at Liberty Christian Academy! The academics are rigorous and you definitely earn your grade as the grading scale is a 7 point instead of a 10 point. This has instilled a strong school work ethic with my children and a sense of great accomplishment with a job well done. I know the teachers work hard and love their jobs and their students. My favorite thing about LCA is the scripture being taught and demonstrated. When my children school me on scripture, my heart rejoices in a way that I can't explain. We love LCA and have enjoyed each and every year our children have/will attend!

As a parent of a middle school student who just completed his/her first year at LCA, I can attest to the teachers being wonderful and child centered and the curriculum being top notch. My child had a tough start after attending a public school. but grades came up to honor roll status where they were in public school. My child did not care for most of the kids who shared the class because they were not Christian acting, but came from public school, probably because of their behavior there. This posed a difficult situation, but the year is over and my child is looking forward to returning even though there were some tearful times and some pleads to be homeschooled.

I am a Senior at LCA and could never have asked for my parents to choose a better school. When I was going into middle school (I then attended a local public school) my parents started looking into private schools. My first year was rough because of the curriculum was very advanced, but the teachers were excellent! All through my years at Liberty I have seen my friends, siblings and myself grow, not only educationally but spiritually too! I love my school and my teachers. The curriculum is as I said, challenging but well worth the extra effort. Our teachers are incredible and we place 1 1/2 years ahead of the public schools in state testing. I feel so prepared for college compared to my friends in public school! Liberty offers soccer, baseball, and volleyball; they are currently expanding to introduce basketball as well. Along with those activities they offer many chances for us to grow spiritually, with chapel every week, praise teams, and missions trips. At Liberty there are no "cool kids" or "popular crowd" everyone is like a big family and you won't get lost in the crowd. I love my school, my friends and my teachers. Trust me send your child to Liberty and they will thank you!

Changes to the Tax Code in late 2017 included the addition of saving for K-12 private school education to 529 plans. We take a look at what this means for families thinking about private school for their children.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.

Hundreds of private schools, and for that matter, public schools, outside the United States will be happy to have you as a teacher for a few years.
