I have two boys enrolled in LCA. They have both been there since K. My older boy is now in 5th and the younger is in 1st. They love I love it. The staff care for them as well as teach them. The school cares for and involves the entire family. This is a wonderful school!!!!

My son has been a student at LCA since first grade. He is now in third grade and I have seen how much my son has advanced academicaly and in the knowledge of God. The teachers are all wonderful and with the size of the class the students get the most out of the teachers.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
