When thinking about your time at LCA, finish this sentence, "This is where...": I built a strong foundation for my faith and learned what it looked like to live out my faith in everyday life. (Brianna)

I learned about how to go through life as a believer and where I found my best friends whom I still see today. (Sam)


What did you love most about your time at LCA? I enjoyed my time on the soccer team and in the weight room the most. (Brianna)

The faculty and people. (Sam)

From your own experiences, why do you believe it was important for you to attend LCA? There were so many critical role models that were placed in my life during high school, who have affected my life beyond high school. (Brianna)

In what ways did LCA prepare you for college and beyond? I took almost all the AP courses that were offered, and looking back, high school was harder than college in many ways. I learned how to study, how to write papers, balance homework and extracurricular activities, etc. I felt extremely prepared for college after graduating from LCA. (Brianna)

Not only academically, but spiritually as well. (Sam)
