Please note that all events are tentative and subject to change or cancellation as we continue to wade the waters with Covid. Any updates will be communicated to you and additional details will shared leading up to each event. I suggest bookmarking the link to the timeline so that it's easy to access throughout the year.

Senior Families,

There is a form in FACTS Family that gives us permission to release records on behalf of your student. This step must be complete before we are able to send transcripts alongside college applications. If you haven't already, please login to FACTS Family and choose Web Forms from the menu. You will then select the College Counseling Records Release Form which grants us the needed permission. I have included instructions here for convenience. 

As a reminder, LCA policy prevents counselors from releasing test scores. This includes ACT, SAT, or AP test scores. 

Thank you!

Dear Senior Families,

We look forward to welcoming back your children for their senior year at LCA. This is such an exciting time for students, their families, faculty, and staff. We have been busy preparing for their return and cannot wait to see them in their classrooms on Wednesday. 

We are writing to let you know that due to a recent increase in COVID cases, it has become necessary to postpone, not cancel, the senior retreat, which was scheduled for Thursday, August 12 – Friday, August 13.  This decision came after a great deal of thoughtful deliberation and prayer.  We understand the importance of events like this for our students to bond as a class.  Our goal is to hold in-person instruction for the entire school year, and realize there may be a need, from time to time, to adjust schedules in the interest of keeping our LCA family safe and well. 

We will communicate with you soon on an alternate date for the senior retreat. Thank you for your continued support and prayers for LCA.  

God Bless, 

Dr. Cassondra Koett

Mr. Justan Borth

LCA TK-5th Grade Student/Parent Handbook

LCA 6th-12th Grade Student/Parent Handbook


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:

FAMILY DEMOGRAPHIC FORM
  • Student Demographic Form
  • Student Medical Form
  • Custodial Parent Form
  • Emergency Contact Form
  • Transportation Form
  • Grandparents Form
STUDENT T-SHIRT, SOCIAL MEDIA and TUITION INFORMATION FORM
  • Student's current t-shirt size
  • Social Media Authorization
  • Tuition Refund Insurance Information
  • "Round Up for Education"
2021-22 STUDENT HANDBOOK ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
 
COVID-19 WAIVER

 

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.

If the FACTS Family page appears to load incorrectly after logging in, try a hard refresh to correct it. If using a PC use control +F5 or command + shift + r on a Mac. If you have other questions or encounter additional problems with the Annual Verification Form, please email the Admissions Office at admissions@lexingtonchristian.org

Again, welcome back! We look forward to seeing you soon!

The High School Office has compiled this list of academic resources for the school year. The list includes multiple student and private tutors, as well as tutoring centers and standardized testing services. Please feel free to utilize these recourses as needed throughout the academic year. 

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.
