We love LCA. The students are loved and cherished. The teachers always go the extra mile. The parents at LCA are just like one big family. You need to come visit the school!

This school is all about nepotism. If you are related to a faculty member you can get away with anything. My child was bullied at this school and nothing was done because the bully was the son of a faculty member and the other bully's dad was a known big money contributor. If you aren't related to a faculty member or donate money to the school, then you child will not be treated fairly. I even tried to go over the teachers and talk to the principal. My child was blamed and now my child has self esteem issues and thinks there is something wrong with them.

My Child had the greatest experience& has now gone on to College. The teachers are great & the band program director is the best.

When I worked at this school, I had nothing to great things to say about the entire staff and administration. With the exception of one teacher who was fired for conduct unbecoming of someone in their position, the staff is above par. As a parent, my daughter had the best teachers, and had we not moved out of the state, she would still be attending the school.

I love this school. I am currently going to it. I have an awesome teacher named Ms.Fischer. She is excellent in all she does. I don't know what idiot said that 'as a teacher i hated it.' and stuff, but I can tell you that it is a wonderful school. The principal, Mr.Motes is very kind and strict, I enjoy him as my History teacher. A girl named Cierra and I are at the top of our class. This is not a bad school, it is awesome. I understand that not all students are well behaved, but at least they try. You need this review from a current students perspective. (I being a current student.)

Please be careful! My child attended this school for four years...only to find out that he is not at the level that he should have been. After having him tested, we realized that he was at least one grade behind...Of course we could not tell this from his report cards from LCA.

I am a graduate of the class of 2004 from LCA and also a 2008 college graduate. I went on full scholarship to my college and entirely grateful for what I learned at LCA. I would definitely send my children there in a heart beat. While LCA may not have the finest facilities, the people care and the curricular standards are above par.

My son has been attending Lithia Christian since kindegarten in 2002 - 2003 school year. He has grown and matured so well! I believe that LCA does a great job in working with each individual child to help them be the best they can be! The teachers communicate successes and areas for improvement and keep the parents in the loop! I look forward to many more years there!

The school has indeed been accredited for the last two school years. The school is like one big family and my daughter is truly very happy there. Her academics are above par, and her teachers push her to be all she can be and not settle for less. She is just leaving second grade and is reading beyond a third grade level. We love the school, and all the teachers, and couldn't be happier.

My daughter attended this school in 2005-2006. I noticed that her reading was not on the level as the kindergartener in public schools and this was suppose to be a 'private school'. At that time the school was trying to get there acreditation and they still haven't been acreditated yet. I immediately pulled her out and enrolled her in a public school. I also had to enroll her in a program called Kumon to get her on track with her reading. She is doing excellent in her reading now. I wonder what her education would have been if I never pulled her out this school. They need to close this school down. Another parent that child attended this school we started talking and her child was experiencing the same thing and she pulled her daughter out as well.

I attended LCA from K-11th grade. I always felt that the teaching staff was above par. The teachers always gave each student individual attention. The acedemics are outstanding. As a parent I appreciate everything this school has to offer and hope to send my children to this school.

This school is great! In my opinion, my child is where she needs to be. She is doing so good here, and I could not ask for more. Here teacher is so good to her as well as everybody she comes in contact there! They all treat her so good, like their own child. She is making all A's here and I know she will continue to with the extrodinary help she gets from her teachers.

My last child graduated from LCA in 2006. I was very pleased with the school. I would have liked more Extracurricular activities. The school was willing to include any sport the children wanted to play. The problem was the lack of interest from the children. I feel the administration was very adequate with discipline. The academics were wonderful. The teachers really care in helping your child succeed.

As a teacher that worked there it is bad. No discipline. The headmaster treats his staff bad. The enrollment keeps dropping due to administration. Teacher don't stay

I would give the Academic status an A. However, the learning environment an F. You have some good days, but too much drama and terrible discipline. I loved the individual attention, but not the 'junk' that went on.

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.
