Academic Philosophy

"Have you mastered the subject?"
 
Developing Sharp Minds
The program of study at LCCA is based on a traditional model of education and emphasizes mastery of a subject and not just the completion of assignments. Our students are challenged to excel so they will be better prepared for the future. This philosophy is reflected in our academic standards as well as in the positive response of our students.

Setting a High Standard

Features of our academic program include:

- A strong emphasis in the early grades on the fundamentals of reading, writing, and mathematics.
- A grading scale that is higher than the norm.
- Regularly assigned homework early on in the elementary program.
- Credit requirements that exceed many local schools for graduation.
- All high school students are encouraged to take challenging classes, regardless of their future college plans.


Rewarding Diligent Effort

- LCCA graduates have attended universities/college such as:

Ambassador Baptist Bible College, Bob Jones University, Calvin College, Cedarville University, Clearwater Christian College, Cornerstone University, The Crown College of The Bible, Faith Baptist Bible College, Indiana Wesleyan University, Judson College, Kings College, Liberty University, Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Mount Vernon Nazerene University, Muskingum University, Northland University, Ohio Christian University, Ohio State University, Ohio State University Newark, Pensacola Christian College, Pillsbury Baptist Bible College, Southern Baptist College, Trinity Christian College, Zane State


Academic excellence will always be a part of LCCA's goal. Whether students go on to professional careers, enter ministry, or raise children at home, the value of learning will have been deeply instilled in them during their formative years at LCCA.

K-4
Kindergarten Academic Program
 
LCCA is distinctive because we teach the absolute truth of God’s Word through Bible lessons, worship, prayer and integration of biblical principles in all subject areas. Young children are able to develop a simple understanding of God’s love for them through a nurturing environment and our biblical integration, which helps each child grow in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and others. Children are encouraged to explore, discover, play, observe, and problem solve through our enriched multi-sensory program.
Our program is designed to encourage your child’s growth spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. The LCCA K-4 program gives young learners the strategies to learn life and academic skills they will need for a strong foundation in the elementary school years.

Children learn best when they are actively engaged! Development of fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills, organizational skills, creative expression and language abilities are just some of the physical and cognitive benefits to this “Hands-On” approach. Social/emotional benefits include practicing appropriate social roles, learning to take turns and to cooperate, developing self esteem and independence, and allowing students to learn through self-discovery.
