I have had the opportunity to get a first hand on site experience with Lake City Christian Academy.I saw first hand the Love throughout the campus for the children. The teachers instructional deliveries were very effective. Students with special needs get the extra help needed. as well as the traditional students being challenge in academic excellence. As a retired member of the accreditation process for the state, I applaud the Administration for providing a quality institution In learning.

This school is a joke. My kids went there for years, they are now in public school and they are WAY behind. The McKay scholarship is suppose to be for schools that are better then the one your child is attending. This is not it. Tana does not care about the school its all about the money. PARENTS BEWARE

Because it was started with the prayers of some folks who began Joy Explosion about 25 years ago, I feel it is a work that God wants done in Lake City. I can only rate the one who has been principal as a person who wants to do it the right way and has the ability to do this.

I love the school ,but the elementary department is doing very well this year. The teachers are teaching more and focusing on each individual student. The school is becoming awesome again. This year is wonderful! They have more new teachers and it shows! The school is getting back on the write track.

The school is really doing well this year because of the change. The teachers are focusing more on education in general. I have found that my child is getting more help within the classroom. The new teachers are wonderful and the elementary and highschool are doing better. I think that it will be a wonderful year!

My daughter goes to LCCA and I have found that as lond as you pay your tuition on time, your child will have no problems. They never have homework. She love because she can do whatever she wants. Hello!!! We are in the process of looking for another high school now.

I like that fact the classes are small. Each child receives more attention and are not lost in the crowd like in the public schools. The entire staff is concerned about your child welfare and educational goals. I am more than satisfied in my child's academic progress.

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.
