Licking County Christian Academy strives to provide students with an enjoyable friendly, family-like atmosphere. Although we work hard to challenge students academically, we also work to balance our schedule to allow students to be involved with events and programs that are fun, interesting, and challenging. Our goal is to help students enjoy school life while reproducing the mind of Christ in their minds.
Students in all grades receive daily challenges from the Word of God, whether in Bible class or in chapel. JR and SR high students have chapel Tuesday and Thursday and Elementary students have chapel either Tuesday or Thursday. Licking County Christian Academy begins each school year in the high school with a required school camp. The school camp starts the last week in August and goes Monday through Friday.
The biblical principle underlying all standards of appearance is modesty. This not only applies to common decency but to the matter of calling undue attention to oneself as well. The clothing and grooming of our students should be appropriate in the area of modesty.
All junior high and high school students are required to wear a school uniform purchased from a company approved by LCCA. The elementary does not have to wear school uniforms but must look neat. Girls are required to wear skirts or dresses and the boys are required to wear a collar shirt and school pants (no blue jeans). School shoes for both elementary and JH/HS can be a casual shoe or dress shoe (no tennis shoes).
When a student enrolls in LCCA, the parents will receive dress code information for ordering school uniforms.
Believing God to be the Creator and Sustainer of life, we desire to teach the creative arts and develop within each student the skill, knowledge and understanding of the arts for the praise and glory of God. We encourage standards of excellence, service to God and man, and the search for truth, goodness and beauty within the arts. Knowing God has uniquely gifted each of our students, Licking County Christian Acadmey`s Fine Arts teachers give students creative experiences and opportunities to grow, use, and appreciate their gifts in choral music, drama, and art. There are various performances throughout the year, including the State BCSA fine arts competition for the elementary, junior high and high school, Christmas dramas, Band and Orchestra competition, and many singing opportunities.
Art students at Licking County Christian Academy explore God`s order and beauty found in the elements and principles of design.They are challenged with design projects and thereby learn that art is a problem solving activity. In addition to this, each grade is exposed to different levels of art and uses ideas from the classical masterpieces of art as springboards to creativity. Students begin with the basics of art and build on them in areas of drawing, painting, mixed media, sculpture, and ceramics. Most importantly, students learn that whatever they do should glorify God. Art starts in the 1st grade and is offered through a student's senior year.
Our focus in drama is not only to develop skills in voice, movement, and characterization on stage, but chiefly to reflect God in our creativity and to glorify Him in our work ethic. We strive for excellence, seek to assume personal responsibility, and endeavor to put the good of the Acting Company ahead of individual gratification. Each spring the Drama Department puts on a full cast production for the community. Here are a number of the Drama Productions that LCCA has produced: Miracle Worker, The Matchmaker, Oliver Twist, Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, Meet me in St. Louis, The Hound of the Baskervilles, M'Liss My Western Miss, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Our Hearts, Annie Jr., Tale of Two Cities, Treasure Island, The Happiest Millionaire, The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Nit Wits.
Music students at LCCA learn that music is first and foremost a gift from God that was given to glorify God and edify man. With respect to God’s glorification, students learn that music should reflect God’s beauty, his organization, and his goodness. With respect to man’s edification, students learn that through diligent study, God’s musical gift helps us to see who God is and to enjoy his creation for his glory. Students at LCCA are offered continuous practical instruction in technique, theory, and performance. In addition to strengthening skills, students also gain appreciation of selected master works of beauty and the gifted composers and musicians who created them.
The spiritual growth of our students is of utmost importance. In addition to Bible classes, the students meet weekly to hear the presentation of God's Word. The Elementary meets once a week for chapel. Elementary chapels are filled with "junior church" songs and lesson from God's Word. The Junior High and High School meet twice a week. The JH/HS chapels have a goal to challenge our students to grow closer to our Lord. Our students have the privilege to hear many local pastors and youth pastors share the gospel. School parents are always welcome to come and be part of the chapels.
