Our daughter did well in public school, but she did not like it and did not thrive. Now we have a child who is energized about school, loves her teachers, has close friends, and truly is thriving in school. LCA is the perfect fit for her. We could not be more pleased with the curriculum. Math has always been her least favorite subject and now she is setting goals and working ahead. We love that creativity prevails in the classroom through hands-on learning!

Imagine a school where the lessons are challenging, poor behavior is not tolerated, and the homework load is heavy. Also, the children are happy, relaxed, comfortable in their own skin, respected for their opinions and individuality, and quite willing to do the homework because it is interesting and stimulating. LCA is such a school. We couldn't be more pleased.

Louisville Classical Academy fits our family just right. We all love the five day schedule of three and a half days in class plus one and a half days of faculty supervised homework study hall and optional electives. The classes are interesting and engaging. The improvement we see each year in math, reading, and writing skills always exceeds our expectations. LCA's high school curriculum is the best in Louisville, and our rising 9th grader is excited about staying. Come check it out!

Our family was looking for a school that would truly educate our children using a rigorous curriculum in a respectful and supportive atmosphere. We believe we have found these qualities in the Louisville Classical Academy. The small class sizes allow the teachers to focus on teaching while producing respectful, responsible, and educated young minds. Even more, the staff are themselves well educated and really seem to share their love and knowledge of different subject matter with the children.

We're so impressed with LCA! We had our sons in another Classical K-12 school in Louisville and the difference between the two is amazing. Our sons noticed it and one commented, "My homework takes longer now because I have to THINK when I do it." Both schools said they emphasized critical thinking but LCA actually does it. LCA teaches the kids how to learn and they strive to develop a love of learning--it's not the typical approach of memorization/regurgitation and regimentation. The teachers each have deep knowledge and experience in their discipline and truly love teaching. They get to know each child as an individual and they focus on what issues and challenges that child confronts. Best of all, parents are encouraged to participate in decision making and in all aspects of the school: the three founders who run the school assume that parents have great ideas, want to participate in their children's education, and have knowledge/skills that can add value to the school. LCA is the best kept secret in Louisville but it won't be for long.

My son has attended for three years and we are impressed with how much the school has done to support his education. He is in high school and is taking advanced but interesting courses. He wanted to take Calculus BC, which no one else in town offers at the High School level, but at LCA his personal learning needs were emphasized--so right now he is learning Calculus BC. He is taking advanced classes in history, English and Science. His writing skills, which were already strong, have gotten much stronger at LCA as a result of the small classes and the thoughtful discussions each day in class. And grammar! Learning Latin and Greek has forged a very strong understanding of how language works and how to construct a grammatically correct sentence. I teach at the college level and grammar is something many of my students stumble over because it is just not taught in schools at any depth. At LCA, students learn. Last year, he took Physics and got to build his own physics experiments--which was fabulous. Another great feature of the school is the way that they build an understanding of history, from the ancient world to modern science, that helps students understand WHY things happened.

LCA is the best kept secret in Louisville! It has the best and most rigorous curriculum in the city, learned and caring teachers, many of whom have Ph.Ds, small class sizes, reasonable tuition, and the kids are happy! My daughter blossomed the day she walked in the school in the fourth grade, and as a seventh grader she is still thriving. Students at LCA learn Greek and Latin; read Shakespeare and other great authors, and receive a fabulous, thorough and engaging education in history. The math and science programs are challenging and the teachers can take an individual student to levels as advanced as the student needs. It's a content-rich, demanding curriculum that takes place in a warm, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We love LCA!
