    "Our daughter has been at LCA since kindergarten & now in 5th grade. She loves her school, teachers, admin, & all of the students. Curriculum is tough, but she never complains. The kids build one another up & are supportive of one another. My daughter loves the Christ-base learning & is thriving academically, personally & spiritually! She thinks of others & their feelings, which is found less in our public schools. We are very pleased with our choice each year to send our daughter to LCA & love that prayer is priority! Our daughters self-esteem is great, due to all of the support she receives from other parents, students, teachers, coaches & administrators!"

    "Our children have been attending LCA since kindergarten. They're currently in high school & in the upper elementary. BOTH have ADHD. Our oldest decided to attend LCA throughout high school when she was in 6th grade (which was nice, since that was our plan as well :). There's absolutely nothing like the feeling of trusting your child to be surrounded by godly men & women who live out their faith in their teaching, their classroom management, their nurturing & their discipling of students. I'm in many classrooms (spanning all grades) regularly through my volunteering & so, have had an extraordinary number of opportunities to observe all of the above described behaviors in action over many years & across many different students. The men & women at LCA, the faculty, the staff, & the volunteers, care deeply for the students & for their families as well! The academic rigor is excellent. The students are challenged & experience success. The test scores, both on a state & national level reflect the high level of instruction & learning that is a part of LCA. The extracurricular opportunities are varied & many are designed to match the gifts & interests of the student population."

    "Reading some of the reviews on this website, I can definitely echo some of the good traits and bad traits of this school. This being said, our experience with this school has been extremely disappointing. This school gives up on certain children based on how much they want to deal with them (or more likely how much money their parents are contributing). It is not a real shocker then, that attendance is down and lately the reviews on websites such as this have started to become more negative. This school simply is not equipped to deal with common problems that happen in every school. The principles and teachers act extremely loving, but only when everything is going well. If there is a problem, then ignoring is their policy. They would much rather blame the problems on a young child than take any responsibility and fix problems. This school's curriculum is very strong, but your child's self-esteem and confidence will take a big hit. Being a Christian-based school should mean they act in a Christian manner, but this is not the case. This school will simply abandon a child and his problems, rather than deal with them (as echoed in previous reviews)."

    "I am a disappointed Christian mother, in how LCA handled the situation with my son, who is six. Let me ask you, what kind of school gives up on a six year old boy? My husband and I chose LCA because of its Christ-centered educational approach, and I believe that when you elect to use the name of our Lord and Savior in your organization's advertising and literature, you are held to a higher standard than an organization that makes no such claim. My son was diagnosed with ADHD, he had good days and he had some rough days, but he never failed to repent. We felt blessed to have LCA as a partner in this journey with the Lord. It is with the greatest respect that I state it is my experience that LCA does not have the skill, resources, or patience s to work with children with ADHD. I do not want another child or parent to have this same experience that we have had with LCA."
