How often do you have Bible classes?

All elementary and secondary students incorporate several Bible classes (devotions) a week. In addition, Biblical truths are infused into each subject on an ongoing basis. Special chapel services are scheduled occasionally at the school administration's discretion. As well, we have regular Bible reading times and monthly scripture memorization.

 

Dress Code

Do your students wear uniforms?

The LCA dress code was developed to provide a positive atmosphere for student learning. The primary objectives are neatness and modesty. The LCA dress code is sufficiently flexible to encourage individual identity and a positive self-image within the borders of appropriate dress for work in a school environment.

Students (Grade 3 - 12) participating in P.E. will be required to wear shorts and t-shirts with the school logo (available for purchase through the Academy Office). A separate pair of socks and athletic/running shoes with non-marking soles are required for P.E. classes.
