Our son attended LSCA for four years and was able to graduate early after receiving all the individual help he needed that he was not able to get in a public school. The Christian education and influence has helped him to continually grow in his faith even after his high school years. My daughter has just started attending LSCA for high school and we are all very excited to know that she will receive the same great Christian education and support that her brother did. Tuition is reasonable, teachers are very qualified and the learning environment is a positive one.

Outstanding school. The teach the true Word of God in addition to academics. It is a blessing to have a school for my daughter where they can pray and study the Bible. My daughter went from getting D's and E's in Public School to getting A's B's & C's in Lake Shore Christian Academy

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.
