LMCA likes to pride themselves on academics, but their true focus is on ministry. Several times school communication has included typographical and grammatical errors. Their ratios are similar to nearby public schools. Their early education department is more like a daycare with minimal curriculum added. The communication with parents is minimal at best. Teachers have come and gone throughout the year and not once was communication given to parents. Not even an introduction of the new staff to parents. Of the teachers that have been stable all of them appear truely invested and loving with the students.
I have been a parent at LMCA for 10 years now and fell that over the past 2 years the school has grown too much. I used to feel as though Bible and education came forst and they would go above and beyond to help them succeed. Now, money has become their priority. Their enrollment is too high, tuition continues to rise, additional 'donations' are mandatory, teachers are stretched too far. My daughter is not doing well in this school due to the fact that they are not strict enough (too easy going) and unlike public school, if they need any type of tutoring it is also an extra charge. Yes, they have a great Christian foundation.
Biblically based school which produces strong Christians. PSAT scores always high, but real SAT schools average to low. Academics average - don't expect to be able to enter any of the top colleges. Very safe environment. Far better than a public school, but not as good as other private schools. School is growing -- has good and bad challenges.
LMCA is an amazing school that I believe is teaching my kids authentic Christianity. Like any school, it has it's flaws but the overall program is exceptional. The academics are strong and have placed my children ahead of the average public school student by one to two years consistently according to the annual SAT scores. I love the ministry opportunities LMCA provides to the students of all grades. I don't think my student would ever have gotten a chance to travel overseas and serve people in third world countries at any other school. The greatest part is the impact foreign missions has had on my child. He not as concerned about himself and really wants to help other people now. That kind of education is priceless!
Lake Mead Christian Academy has teachers who are very caring yet they hold the students accountable for their actions. Two of my children have graduated from here and I have a child in the 11th grade. The two who have graduated say that when they have children they will attend LMCA.
This is a very biblical based program. The teachers are very well educated and have a love of what they do. Parental involvement in my sons class was great. They always had fun projects and creative learning programs going on in his K4 class.
My son attended LMCA from kindergarten through 5th grade, and another son attemded through 2nd grade, until we moved from the area. LMCA is academically aggressive and Biblically based. The teachers have high standards, as does the administration. Music, art, and sports are available as electives and are well run. The focus is on academics, and there is quite a bit of homework. My children scored exremely well on the yearly SAT tests compared to the national average (in the 70, 80 and some scores even in the 90th percentile). The teachers love Christ, and they pass that love along to their students. Parental involvement is required.
