2023-24 State of the School

We are excited to provide you with the 2023-24 State of the School! This year, our Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team launched a comprehensive strategic planning process. Our strategic plan was developed to provide a long-range view of future school priorities. Our effort included market data, stakeholder surveys, competitive and educational analysis, and demographic trends. 

In addition to our Strategic Plan, you will find highlights from the 2023-2024 school year. 

This is an exciting time for Lexington Christian Academy. God has blessed our school abundantly, and we pray your family is excited as our team regarding the school's future. We encourage you to watch the video below and take a look at the 2023-24 State of the School report.

Our History

In June 1989, the vision of Lexington Christian Academy (LCA) became a reality. After months of discussion and prayers, The Academy and The Lexington Christian School merged. The Academy served kindergarten-6th grade and The Lexington Christian School was a kindergarten-12th grade program. Both schools envisioned a pre-kindergarten-12th grade non-denominational, Christian school that would honor the Lord while providing the finest academic and extra-curricular programs. Both schools realized that by combining their efforts they would be able to serve more families in Central Kentucky seeking a Christ-centered education. 

The founders of LCA recognized a true education provides curricular offerings to cultivate growth in the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical, and creative areas of life. 

Since its inception, LCA has provided an educational experience which prepares students not only in the classroom, but on the playing field, and stage, in chapels and retreats, and through leadership programs and outreach programs. By focusing on students’ minds, hearts, and bodies, LCA produces scholars that impact the world for Jesus Christ.

Our Community

At LCA, we believe we have been created in the image of a relational God, thus the experiences of living in community and sharing life with others is an integral part of our school experience. 

Our culture promotes fellowship. It is a place where students, faculty, staff and parents come together to celebrate, have fun, and create lifelong memories. You see this lived out in a variety of ways including the school’s Back-to-School Bash, Grandparents Day Celebrations, Parents In Prayer, Trunk or Treat, Donuts with Dad, Muffins with Mom, and the Eagle Gala. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to equip and to nurture students to fulfill God's calling on their lives through Christ-centered education.

Our Vision

Our vision is pursuing a world-class Christ-centered education.


True education must be built on, centered in and continually judged by Christ and the Scriptures.

The Bible must serve as the basis upon which every course and every activity in the school is evaluated. The school’s worldview—basic beliefs, assumptions, values, priorities, and biases - must be firmly established upon the principles of God’s Word.

Bible instruction is integrated with every aspect of the student's educational experience.

In addition to attending daily Bible classes, LCA students encounter God’s truth. The Bible is the framework for character, attitude, and value development.

Parents are the first - and most important - teachers.

One of the principal needs of children is instruction. The Bible emphasizes the important role that parents play in providing that instruction. While others may teach, fathers and mothers have the prime responsibility. The partnership between the home and school establishes a strong foundation for the student’s success.

There is a commitment to excellence and innovation throughout out educational program offerings that maximally prepares our students for college and life.

LCA School System's curricular and instructional decisions are supported by research and reflective of best practices.

Students should have a wide range of educational opportunities available to them. 

LCA believes that no student should have to take an academic penalty to receive a Christian education. As a result, LCA has made a long-term financial commitment to provide a full range of educational opportunities to its student body.


What does it mean to be a covenant Christian School?
Before we explain what a “covenant” Christian school is, it might help to understand the term “covenant.” In Biblical terms, a covenant was a binding agreement that defined a commitment or obligation between two parties. A covenant school seeks to bind families and the school together through a common pledge to educate all students within the school system and at home through the lens of a Biblical worldview.

At Lexington Christian Academy, we require at least one parent be a professing Christian, active in a local church, and agreeing with our mission, “Core Values,” and “Statement of Faith.”

This “covenant” extends beyond enrollment and remains until the student withdraws or graduates from LCA. We take the nature of the covenant seriously and expect certain behavior for our school community which includes students, parents, and employees. There may be times when the covenant is strained or broken. If this should occur, conversations will be had to determine if the covenant can be repaired or if it is truly broken and both parties agree to go their separate ways.

Being a covenant school is meant to provide LCA, its families, and its employees with a common direction. That direction is towards Christ. Our covenant nature is meant to ensure that as we fulfill our Mission Statement and honor the school’s “Core Values” and “Statement of Faith,” we do so in a way that honors God, and is being reinforced at home, at church, and in the overall LCA community.
