Founded in 2001, it is our belief that God has called and established LCA for the purpose of training students to lead in life, through academic excellence, ethics, leadership and enterprise. LCA began in 2001 with 32 students and four teachers. In 2004, we broke ground for a new 130’ x 225’ building to house the continued growth of the academy. In September 2006, classes began in the new facility with 80 students and 12 teachers and staff. In September 2008, a new gym floor was installed.
LCA provides academics in the classical tradition.
To this strong academic platform, we add opportunities for students to learn and develop life-skills in three areas: ethics, leadership and enterprise. We desire to give students a vision of their potential for excellence and help equip them to achieve their callings and dreams.
Since the beginning, 30 seniors have graduated from the Academy – most have gone on to pursue higher education. Graduates continue to make positive contributions in work places, military service, mentoring youth, and families.
Vision & Philosophy
Christ-Centered Education with Academic Excellence
Founded as Lake West Christian Academy in 2001, Lake Christian Academy exists for the purpose of training students academically, spiritually, physically, and socially in a Christ-honoring manner. It is our goal to stress excellence in all areas through Christ-centered instruction and example. The curriculum is structured in biblical context and emphasizes high academic standards with strong emphasis in language arts, reading, math, patriotism, and self-discipline. We consider Christian teachers to be the key in the whole process. Therefore, all our teachers are committed Christians, well qualified to teach, and possess a genuine love for children.
With the departure from a spiritual atmosphere in the public classroom, a natural decline of respect, discipline and moral behavior has resulted in an atmosphere less conducive to learning. Respect and self-discipline are two principles reinforced throughout our entire day. Consequently, we welcome those students who sincerely desire to attend a Christian school and whose parents will be in complete support of the lifestyle of the Academy.
It is the sole purpose of Lake Christian Academy to help mold the lives of young people who will be spiritually and academically equipped to follow their calling upon graduation.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible, in its entirety, to be the inspired Word of God and the infallible rule for faith and conduct. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Creator of all things. We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection, and His soon return. We believe that the only means of salvation is through Jesus Christ, and that anyone who will, can receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and become a born again child of God. In obedience to the Lord’s command, believers should follow Him in water baptism. The one who physically dies in his sins without accepting Christ is hopelessly and eternally lost in the Lake of Fire and, therefore, has no further opportunity of hearing the Gospel or repenting. The Lake of Fire is literal. The terms “eternal” and “everlasting,” used in describing the duration of the punishment of the damned in the Lake of Fire, carry the same thought and meaning of endless existence as used in denoting the duration of joy and ecstasy of saints in the Presence of God.
