I am pleased with LCA, I have two children that attend and love the Christian belief. I could not see myself sending my children to any other school than LCA. The curriculum is challenging, but I see this as an advantage because it is preparing them for college. I love the faculty and staff.

My son is now in the 4th grade at LCA and has been there since K4. It is truly an incredible school. The staff are dedicated to your child's success and development. The curriculum is fast paced but the children learn at a phenominal rate. He will, without a doubt, be an LCA graduate.

Overall LCA is an amazing school. This is our second year there and we really like it. The curriculum is amazing and we love the principal. They are a little more strict than I would like but if that is the only negative thing that I have to say then I think we are doing just fine.

My daughter wil not be attending this school again next year. Way to much drama. They expect these little children to act like adults. What ever happened to letting kids be kids. Not inpressed at all with LCA. Will not be recommending everyone to this school!

Bad experience with LCA pulled my kids out. It is so stricted over their that the kids can't breath. The teachers do not watch the kids enough nor defend them if a student is being wrongly accused. You have a 7th grade Math teacher who doesn't work problems out on the board because he doesn't know how to do them correctly, so now have of the class is failing. You have teachers giving the right answers on test and letting kids retake tests til they get a good grade. Sounds like public school. If your kid does wrong good luck... No one stands up for for what is right. Parents don't let the faculity bully you take a stand.

My daughter has gone since Pre-K. She is now in 4th grade. Her teachers have nurtured her academically and socially. They are concerned just as much with character development as academics. I love the school. It may not be for everyone but for us, it has been awesome.

Fantastic school... The staff and administration is wonderful and caring. The school is advanced and unfortunately some students struggle to succeed academically if they do not have a solid foundation; however, the compassion to help these students achieve is second to none. Students aren't weeded out by the administration... parents and students do that to themselves. We absolutely love the school and would be no where else. Thanks LCA!!!

If your child does not fit the perfect profile then you won't succeed in this school. Perfect kids appreciated, less than perfect are weeded out. Staff is not accountable for actions because everyone is family and related.

I have been to other Christian Schools and had the unfornate run in with religious spirits. LCA provides a healthy environment for my children to grown spiritually and in knowledge. They are organized, loving, merciful and they use sound wisdom. They are great examples of Christ for our children by nurturing them to be the person God created them to be in this world. They have a great sports program and they never cease to amaze me with all the programs they put into place.

This is my son's first year (K5) at LCA, and he is thriving very much in LCA's environment. This school is very structured, caring and motivating. LCA challenges our children both academically & socially in a christain environment. I regularly volunteer at the school and this is a private school that actually does practice its faith practices. There is no tolerance for bullying, peer pressure or other ugly behaviors that I have seen at other schools (both private & public). I have & will continue to refer LCA & The Family Church to all my friends & family.

LCA is a great school to go to. You learn way more than a public school. I know that because I used to go to one but ever since I swiched to LCA the teachers,students, and staff members are amazing to me. All parents should put their kids at LCA.

After struggling with the public school system, we decided to place our children at LCA. We have been impressed beyond our wildest dreams. The training and education provided are probably the best in Lafayette. The athletic program begins in 3rd grade and continues through high school. The staff is absolutely wonderful and completely supportive of each and every student, individually. The teachers are genuinely concerned and care for my children. They enjoy their jobs, which is always a positive thing. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in a wonderful Christian education.

Last year was my last year at LCA. It is a wonderful school in education, teachers are awesome but they do not show you what happens in the real world.

This is a wonderful school. The academics are outstanding and the atmosphere is safe and welcoming. I am a math teacher myself and I am very pleased with the education that my son is receiving. Thank you LCA for being a great school.

We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
