From your own experiences, why do you believe it was important for you to attend LCA? ? It is even more obvious in my adult years (and living in NYC) how crucial it is for children to be in an academic environment where their faith is the top priority. Receiving an education in a Christian environment lasted me so much longer than just the 14 years in those four walls.
In what ways did LCA prepare you for college and beyond? Academically, I was more than prepared. Spiritually, I am firm in my faith and I owe it all to the priority that my parents made to send me to LCA and receive a Christian education.
