General School Mission

"LCA believes the true goal of education is to know God because God is the source of all truth, wisdom, and knowledge.
Since God is omniscient, all areas of life and learning are sacred.
A Christian worldview places all learning within the parameters of Scripture, therefore all instructional areas will be taught from a Biblically based view.
Curriculum is specially designed and selected to challenge the student to internalize a Christian worldview.
Children are gifts from God, a sacred trust, to be raised in the nurture and admonition of God "to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength." Deuteronomy instructs parents to "listen diligently to the Lord's commands and to teach them to your children." LCA exists to assist parents in fulfilling this Biblical obligation.
Christian teachers who are called by God, gifted by God, and guided by the Holy Spirit, in their personal and professional lives, displaying excellence in educational practice, are employed to teach Christian students.
The teacher guides and nurtures students toward a Christian worldview through a variety of teaching methodologies.
Christian education occurs as the Holy Spirit works effectively in the hearts and minds of the students.
Because God has created all students it is the purpose of the Christian school to direct each student to achieve their full potential with regards to their unique talents and developmental growth patterns.
