Academic Programs

LCCA provides a quality academic foundation for your child with the Abeka curriculum.  We utilize pre-recorded videos recorded at Pensacola Christian Academy along with live instruction from our dedicated and experienced teachers. We endeavor to shepherd students into a life of learning, not merely to push them through a curriculum.

Developing Sharp Minds

The program of study at LCCA is based on a traditional model of education and emphasizes mastery of a subject 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 10-point grading scale
- 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 Nazarene 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, and Zane State.

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


Kindergarten (K-5) Academic Program

At Licking County Christian Academy, we believe that the primary objective of education is the communication of truth. In order for any education to be effective and valid, it must base its curriculum and its programs on the truth of God’s Word and God’s world.
Our Kindergarten Program provides your child with basic learning principles needed for a solid foundation to last throughout their educational years. We utilize Abeka curriculum and a variety of supplemental books and materials along with manipulative toys and games to enrich your child’s learning experience. Kindergarten is also included in the annual Iowa Assessments Testing.
