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.
LMCA is an amazing school. I have read through some of the reviews on this site. I know people get mad and feel they need to bash a school but this school is unique in so many ways. Remember I did not say "perfect" Is there such thing as a perfect school. You will meet a group of people like never before. This school is all about building community and always making you feel at home in a safe environment. My kids love their school which in turn makes for a happy kid. The teachers invest into them in a way we have never seen before. You feel like you are dropping them off to people who love them not there for a paycheck. Rather than take from some of the negative response, stop by LMCA for a tour and see it for yourself. I promise it is well worth your time. From a very happy LMCA family!!! <3
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.
My school is wonderful!! So thankful to have found it. It is a tough decision to make for your child but we know we made the right one for ours. I have never seen so many people show so much love to our kids. We know they are in good hands everyday when we drop them off.
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.
I am a teacher at LMCA. There are lots of great things I could say about our school, but I'd like to focus on our relationship with our families. We promote community building among our staff and parents, and while we may not have perfected it yet, we are building strong relationships. In March my brother had a stroke, and not expected to live. The parents in my classroom rallied around and purchased an airline ticket for me to go spend time with my brother! We have become a family, we share in each others heartaches and blessings. Building strong community is the tie that binds us! I love knowing that families from my class feel the freedom to come to me with a need, a praise, or prayer request. These type of relationships make it easy for families to continue at LMCA. Everyone wants to feel loved, and every parent wants to know their child is loved! This is a portion of life at LMCA! Are we a perfect school? Of course not! And we are not perfect people! But we do strive to be our best for The Lord Jesus Christ! Come check us out!
My Daughter has been enrolled @ LMCA since she was 4 yrs old. She will enter into 4th grade for the 2013/2014 school year. The staff is phenominal! There is much love and encouragement by all who work and attend the school! The Holiday Breaks / Summer Program is also something we look forward to. There is a great vision for the new High School Building. Its good to see a school that continues to re-give funds to itself for continued growth.
I am going to maybe going to lmca... Is it safe? What kind if sports do they have? What is there teaching style? What classes can I take? I am going into the 8th grade I would appreciate a respon thank you.
LMCA is a hidden gem in the Henderson Valley. There are so many wonderful things about the school that make it unique. I read a few of the negative posts on this site and the facts are not correct. One of the things our family loves most about LMCA is that it accepts kids that are not Christians. They are there to minister to ALL kids and of ALL ages. Is it a perfect school? No, but it is an amazing school!!! The Alumni go off to college and after graduation they return to teach and serve in the ministry they love. I suggest you go to LMCA for a tour and make your own opinion about the school. See it in action, meet the wonderful staff, teachers and even observe the students. This school is not about the money, yes there are cost and expenses that every private school has but the staff is there to serve God. My kids never stepped foot in public school, I have seen parents who made the decision to let there kids go to public school but I have also seen them come back per their child's request. It is far from a "typical school", both of my kids are in college and doing extremely well and were very prepared for college. They also prepared them to defend their faith in the world.
As a parent, I could not be more happy with the school. The results show. Their students go on to college, complete, and do well. They educate the whole child- academically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially. Their worldview and missional training is incredible and the alumni speak of those experiences and classes often and with high praise. They don't compromise at all. They know that Christians can have a fabulously strong education and be solid in their faith at the same time.
The school is more about your money more than teaching. They like to try and squeeze as much money out of you as they can. As far as the education, it is nothing to rave over. Many teachers are not qualified to teach and don't have degrees (I have seen students graduate, only to come back and teach the very next year). For elementary school, the education is fine. For everything higher, you are better off going to public school. As with the students, it is just a typical school that just happens to have the extra Bible class. Many parents put their kids in the school thinking that it is a better school with better parents. But when many parents do that, well, you have a lot of non Christians there, and guess what, makes it all the same as a public school, except hoping that the extra Bible class will somehow change them. Really, it isn't better than anything you would get at a public school. In the end, you are better off attending another school.
LMCA is the best place to send my child. From the Admin Staff, the teahers to the parents, it is a loving, family atmosphere. LMCA is a blessing to our family and a wonderful environment for a child to blossom in a safe, bully free atmosphere. The kids all love each other and the willingness to help, comfort and guide is amazing!
My daughters are currently in their second year of elementary school at LMCA. I couldn't ask for a more supportive environment for my children. We switched to LMCA after having tried our best with the local public school and finally left after my frustration with an apathetic principal, less than challenging curriculum, and insane class sizes. LMCA offers a challenging curriculum. You aren't getting the high powered curriculum you would get at some other private schools, but unless you want to pay 3 times the price, you can't beat it. It is definitely more challenging than public school curriculum. The small class sizes, a school community with similar values regarding education, and wonderful teachers make LMCA a jewel. The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is due to the fact that I feel more hands-on learning, and less worksheets, could be used. I do see more inventive instruction being implemented at this time so I am hoping this trend continues. We aren't an overly religious family but LMCA was a good fit for us. A caring staff, dedicated faculty, a quality education, and an involved school community makes LMCA a wonderful decision for any family.
