Admissions Process

Admissions Criteria

In keeping with LCA’s mission of “equipping and nurturing students to fulfill God’s calling on their lives through Christ-centered Education,” LCA considers the following:

  • Families who are growing in their personal Christian walk and involved in their local church. LCA requires that at least one parent be a Christian.
  • Students whose academic records demonstrate proven capability to succeed in our program. Therefore, students’ records will be carefully evaluated prior to acceptance.
  • Students whose recommendations show a behavioral history that is in harmony with the behavioral expectations of LCA.

Christian education is a significant investment. LCA offers the following programs to assist with affordability:

Tuition Assistance: LCA awards more than $800K in need-based financial aid each year. A tuition assistance overview is available here.

RaiseRight: RaiseRight (formerly the Eagle Tuition Incentive Program known as “E-TIP”) is a program set up for families to accumulate credit toward their tuition obligation at LCA. Families purchase prepaid gift cards from local and national retailers. These cards are just like cash. In appreciation for your patronage, these businesses provide discounts between 1.25% and 50% of the face value of the gift card. Learn more here (scroll to bottom of the page).
