What did you love most about your time at LCA? The friends and families that I was surrounded with through being apart of the LCA family. Also, my years of playing on the LCA baseball and basketball team and the teammates and memories made from it.
What is one word that best describes the school? Solid. The school is made up of strong men and women as teachers and staff who are solid in their identities in Christ and love to pour into those around them.
Tell us about one of your favorite memories at LCA. My favorite memory at LCA was probably winning the baseball All "A" State Championship in 2015 for my senior season.
From your own experiences, why do you believe it was important for you to attend LCA? Attending LCA was important to me because it gave me an incredible network of families, teachers and staff to lean on and learn from as I have walked this journey of life. It also massively prepared me both academically and athletically to move into and succeed at the collegiate level.
In what ways did LCA prepare you for college and beyond? LCA prepared me in the classroom by teaching me how to manage and handle college styled curriculum and classroom instruction. The adjustment period of getting used to college style classes and assignments was much quicker for me than some of my peers at Centre College who did not come out of LCA. Furthermore, LCA has prepared to understand so much of our life is about relationships and just loving people in the same way the Father loves us. I believe LCA did a great job of surrounding me with individuals who live that out daily.
What would you tell a friend to encourage them to send their child(ren) to LCA? I would say that one of the best reasons to send your child to LCA is that they are not only being prepared, taught and mentored to be highly proficient in both academics and athletics, but they are joining a community and family of people are seeking after the Lord's will for their life.
