My three children began attending LWA four years ago. They were welcomed by their new classmates and teachers as well. They immediately felt at home. My oldest son, felt a calling to be there, comfortable with the children, and said they were respectful of each other and the teachers. Four years later, my children have grown not only academically, they are challenged in their daily learning, but also in their walk with the Lord.

My son began attending LWA on November 2005. He came from a public school where he was feeling 'out of place.' He felt as if 'his life at home and school were not the same. That no one knew who he really was.' LWA's caring christian environment has transformed him into a confident happy boy in a matter of weeks. The academic and social bar are much higher. However he seems to work much better within this more structured perimeter. He has developed friendships with children who are likeminded , friendships I hope last a lifetime. I can't say enough about our experience at LWA.

I have had 4 students in the Academy and while it did cost a lot the education they received was worth every penny. All have gone on to higher education and have done well in admission tests. As with all schools some teachers are great others only fair, but parental involvement is accepted, if not encouraged. The concern of all students is taken into consideration, not just the brightest. I am very greatful for having had the opportunity to send my children to the academy. It was worth all the overtime and weekends I had to work.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher 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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
