1st day at LMCA my son was18 months. He's 6 and in kindergarten. Last summer, we moved to AZ. His current Christian Academy simply lacks what we came to love at LMCA. As a family, we experienced very difficult challenges, including the loss of my son's father when my son was in PK3. The principal and his teachers not only guided my son, but also me, to find peace and a safe place through their incredible support, love, and advice. It made me realize just how important the "Christian" part of education is. Both of us coped better, and I made better choices. Yes, perhaps there is equivalent academics in a public school. I am saddened to hear some families won't be back next year, 1st grade. However, you cannot know the impact of what a child's Christian environment at school will have on their future. My son will face big challenges again - throughout life. I want him to be able to call on his faith as a Christian to help him get through those times. I don't know if we can afford LMCA next year. We are returning to NV, and I will do what I can to have him there. Also, make no mistake, the curriculum is excellent - my son reads at a 2nd-3rd grade level and not because of me.
I am alumni and now a parent of LMCA! I love the environment and the teachers are amazing! The focus of academics and the Biblical world view that they teach is so important and I love seeing what my kids come home with! The school's core values of love, security, quality and accessibility are shown daily. I would never choose another place for my children to grow up!!!
LMCA is a place where your whole family can come and be a part of the community. You will not find a better place for your children to grow and experience a wonderful education. My daughter graduated from LMCA in 2011 and my son in 2009.
LMCA is amazing. The teachers care so much about their students. It really is more then just a place for education. When you are there you're part of a community.
LMCA has been a huge part of my family. I met my husband there and now my 4 children are able to attend. They look forward to school daily not just because they have been taught to love learning but they truly feel like it is a big family. Just like I did. LMCA has come so very far in the past 24 years. I cannot wait to see what God will do next! WE LOVE LMCA!!!!!!
LMCA has been such a blessing to me and my children. The teachers and staff are amazing. We spent a couple years in the public school system and there is NO comparison. My kids are excited each and everyday to go to school!
Lake Mead Christian Academy is an awesome school! We love the teacher to student ratio. small class size means lots of teacher attention. also a great Community to belong to, makes you feel like family.
I am so thankful for this amazing school and the staff. They hold a standard for teaching the students about God and how to defend their faith. My children (3) are so excited to go to school. When they were in public school it was like a nightmare everyday preparing them for school. Now they are excited to go and love learning again.
AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! The core values of LOVE SECURITY ACCESSIBILITY QUALITY are held to an extremely high standard.
This school is amazing! I am so happy to be around other christian kids! Although the school may be great, but principal currently there, is not a very kind and welcoming person. That is the only bad thing about the school! LMCA could use a principal that is encourgeing. She is not welcoming and she could work on her people skills.
It is my first year teaching, and I am overwhelmed with the amazing support of other teachers and the school leadership. From behind the scenes, I can see that their passion is for the whole student, that they would be provided with the tools to succeed scholastically, spiritually, and emotionally in life after high school. I can honestly say that I wouldn't want to be anywhere else- I love my job and the students I get to teach!
My children have been at LMCA for seven years and we have been very happy with it. We have been here long enough to have seen many changes and are very pleased with the direction the school has headed. The administration is incredibly supportive. Although there has been a greater focus on academics in recent years (a good thing!), it has not lessened the focus on spiritual formation. Probably our favorite part of the school has been the Bible and worldview classes, and the opportunities our children have had to go on mission trips (locally, out of state, and even out of the country) to put what they have learned into practice. Our children have grown so much here and are so happy with the education they've received, the relationships they've made, and the investment they know the teachers have made in them.
I am a teacher at LMCA and I think it is the most wonderful place to send your children! We have a Christian environment, smaller and safer classes, great sports programs, challenging curriculum, excellent drama department, great music department for elementary...the list goes on! We have an excellent before and after school program that also includes summer, Christmas break, and spring break. If you are looking for a place where your children will receive a total education, LMCA is the place. Our goals for your family will be love, quality, safety, and accessibility.
LMCA is an amazing school. My daughter loves her teacher and is learning and growing so much.
LMCA is a great school! It is unique in the fact that there is so much love on this campus, yet it does not distract from education. The students were overwhelmingly welcoming when I first started working here last year. I can't imagine a better place to be.
Today we celebrated life! Our entire school and family members were served an incredible homemade turkey dinner. During our meal, children and adults alike shared the reasons for their grateful hearts. LMCA is committed to educating the whole student not only academically but also through character building.
With two daughters enrolled, I must say I am thoroughly satisfied! There is a love for each student and even for our family, that is just beyond words. The staff really cares! Also, I cannot believe what the girls are learning. They are both in elementary, but the curriculum is advanced and the critical thinking skills they are learning are just amazing. I would highly recommend this school. Take a tour and you will be sold!!
LMCA is an amazing school and community in Henderson, NV. It is a place where our kids are loved and safe. You cant put a price on education when your child comes home happy and always excited to go to school. We are so thankful to have such a great school in the Vegas Valley. Our kids go on a week long mission every spring time. Last year they had 7 places they could pick from. My oldest went to serve in Guatemala and my other child went to Canada. They came back with a different outlook on life and how others live. Thank you Lake Mead Christian Academy... our family loves this school!!! <3
This school is a BLESSING for our daughter and our family. The staff is caring, understanding and supportive. I see a Bright future :)
This was my sons first year at lmca.As a parent I feel the principle needs to do a better job on hiring teachers. I paid thousands of dollars and received a public school education. The classes were small so you would think the teacher would be able to give individual attention. Nope she was very unorganized and played favorites. Which is not the Christian way . Very disappointed.
