Continuous Enrollment: February 8-28

That's right! You only have to complete the Continuous Enrollment agreement this year between February 8-28. Then your child will be enrolled until they graduate, or you tell us your family is not returning to LCA. After February 28th, you will need to contact the Admissions Office (admissions@lexingtonchristian.org) to determine if there is a spot available for your child(ren) for the 2021-22 school year. Visit the Continuous Enrollment webpage to learn more and to complete your agreement. 


LCA has established the Ruth Coppler Outstanding Teacher Award, to be given annually to an LCA teacher in memory of Mrs. Ruth Coppler, who was a beloved elementary teacher at our school. This award is established as a tribute to her love for teaching and to recognize teachers who share and exemplify that love. For more info and to nominate a teacher, click here.

2020-21 6th Grade Academy Information

In January 2018, the Commonwealth of Kentucky changed the immunization requirements for students enrolled in both public and private schools, as well as day care centers. All students must have two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine prior to the start of the 2018-2019 academic year or show evidence of having the shot series in progress. In addition, students must have the booster dose of the quadrivalent meningococal (MenACWY) vaccine at the age of 16 (previously the booster was required at age 18).

Parents must provide the school with a copy of the EPID-230 "Certificate of Immunization Status" (rev. 2017) showing that the student is CURRENT for all required immunizations. No other form of documentation can be accepted, including partial EPID-230 forms, old forms with the new shots handwritten on them or pharmacy receipts for vaccination. Students who are not in compliance with immunization requirements must be suspended from attending classes until their record is brought current and submitted to the school.

Medical Exemptions are now noted on the EPID-230 if students are unable to be vaccinated due to medical reasons.  A separate doctor's letter is not required.

Parents may also file a Religious Declination form. This is the required form and no other documentation can be accepted. Be advised that the "Kentucky immunization regulation does not permit philosophical exemptions to immunizations. Kentucky only has medical or religious exemptions to immunizations."

An audit of the immunization documents will be conducted and students whose documentation is expired, incomplete or missing will have 14 days from the date of notification to be in compliance and avoid suspension.

If you have any questions regarding Kentucky's immunization requirements for school attendance, please visit the Kentucky Department of Education website or Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services website. A brief summary of the changes to the immunization requirements is available here or see the Kentucky Public Health "Amended Immunization Regulation (902 KAR 2:060) Answers to Frequently Asked Questions" for more details regarding the new regulations.

RenWeb is LCA's school information system. It is the home for all demographic and academic records. Parents Web is the parent, or family, portal for access to information within RenWeb. From ParentsWeb you are able to see grades, contact information and financial information bu linking to your FACTS account.

Each parent, student and staff member has a unique set of credentials in RenWeb that drives logging into the RenWeb website. Please email atabor@lexingtonchristian.org if you cannot remember your username or password.

Converge is a classroom management system. Our teachers in grades 6-12 use this platform for classroom calenders, resource lists, homework assignments and general communications with students. It is a resource for students to use with each class. Parents also have logins for Converge, though a parent's view is a bit different that than of their students. A parent will see the agenda and calendar sections and not all the classroom details.
