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.
