LCA fosters opportunities for authentic relationships in all of its endeavors. Parents must agree to become part of the LCA community before their children are accepted for admission. Community requires commitment and responsibility; therefore, families agree to attend fellowships, workshops, and abide by our communication guidelines prior to being admitted to the LCA family. Elementary students build community through chapel services and occasional social gatherings planned by grade-level social coordinators. Because LCA believes that young children should be socialized primarily by the family unit, LCA limits the number of activities planned for the elementary grades. Our junior high and high school students are trained to build and maintain authentic relationships during chapel, small group interaction, and a student-led service. Additionally, students are given leadership opportunities through our Department of Student Life, including the following: serving in student government, planning a retreat, or participating in a service project.
