Teachers & Staff at Lexington Christian Academy are the heartbeat of our school. Our teachers are experts in their content area and inspire our students to discover, collaborate, problem solve, and become critical thinkers. Most importantly, every LCA teacher and staff member consider it a blessing and priority to educate our students to fulfill God’s calling on their lives.

The Celebrate Teachers & Staff is a restricted program that provides a monetary Christmas bonus for all full and part-time education employees and support staff. Restricted gifts can be spent only for a specific purpose, like Celebrate Teachers & Staff. We ask you to pray and consider a gift to Celebrate Teachers & Staff in addition to your Annual Fund donation. Thanks for giving to the people who make LCA an incredible school and community. A gift of any amount makes a real difference! Click here to donate.

Dear LCA Families,

Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  As we prepare for the start of school, each year we ask our families to review and update their demographic information as well as data pertaining to t-shirt sizes, social media rights, and optional tuition programs.  In addition, we ask families to read and then attest to agreeing with the school's student handbook.

This year is no different; however, we have organized the forms into a single process - The Annual Verification Process.  The Annual Verification Process permits families to easily review and make updates to the data stored in our school information system.  The process includes the following forms:

  • Custodial Parent Form
  • Emergency Contact Form
  • Transportation Form
  • Grandparents Form
STUDENT T-SHIRT, SOCIAL MEDIA and TUITION INFORMATION FORM

Families can access the Annual Verification Form and its supporting documents by logging into FACTS Family.  As a reminder, our district code is LX-KY.  Once you log into the system, select SCHOOL, WEB FORMS, and then 2021-22 ANNUAL VERIFICATION.  

COMPLETION OF THE ANNUAL VERIFICATION PROCESS IS DUE BY THURSDAY, JULY 29.  

Our preschool and elementary campus will publish homeroom teacher assignments on Friday, August 6.  Our Sixth Grade Academy, Junior High, and High School will publish class schedules on Monday, August 2.

Families must complete and submit their annual verification forms in order to be eligible to receive their students' homeroom assignments and class schedules.

Lunch orders will be invoiced a week at a time on Friday for that week's orders. Once you receive the invoice, the charges will deduct from the account attached to your Incidentals Account in FACTS in 10 days. You can log into FACTS Family and pay the invoice with an alternative method of payment.

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.
