We view the education of children as a partnership between parents and the academy.

RESPECT

Each person is created in God’s image and will therefore be treated with respect.

EXCELLENCE

Continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence underlies all that we do.

HONESTY

Our relationships and academic performance will be based on honesty and executed in fairness.

SCHOOL LIFE

LCA is where creativity, kindness, and academic strength come together. Within our walls, students learn respect for themselves and one another, and create meaningful friendships that will carry well beyond their years here. 

We celebrate diversity, accomplishments big and small, and all of the pieces that make a whole person. We thrive on the things that make us unique. 

At LCA, our students discover WHO they are and HOW the learn.

We exist to educate young men and women in the arts and sciences in the context of a complete commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
