Lunch and adding funds to an eagle account

Lunches are ordered via the FACTS Family portal or the LCA app. They can be ordered daily or for an entire week at a time. Click here for step-by-step instructions to order lunch via the FACTS Family portal or the app and to also add funds to an Eagle Account. 

All lunch orders must be entered by 8:30 a.m. Any order placed after 8:30 a.m. will receive a brown bag "emergency" lunch.

If you ordered a lunch and your student will be absent that day, you must call the office by 8:30 a.m. to cancel your order. Orders cannot be canceled after 8:30 a.m., and you will be charged for that day's order.

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.

GRAB 'N GO

Students in 6th-12th grades can purchase items at the Grab 'n Go area in the lunchroom. 

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.

A copy of the updated immunization and preventative exam forms can be faxed or emailed from your medical provider, or by you, to the attention of  Nikki Gehring, Rose Campus Nurse (see info below). You can also email a copy to:

Nikki Gehring – Rose Campus Nurse  
ngehring@lexingtonchristian.org 
Fax: (859) 223-3769 
Phone: (859)422-5711

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.

Please make sure your medical forms are up to date and that we have a current copy of your student's immunization record. Links to medical forms can be found below.

Scheduling Resources

The course request process for the 2024-2025 academic year begins on Thursday, February 8, with an information assembly for rising 10-12 grade students.

On Friday, February 9, students will receive a paper Course Request Form that lists their recommended core courses based on both application of the course prerequisites and their teacher's assessment of the course in which they expect to have the best chance of success.

Students will complete and return their signed Course Request Form to the High School office or their Bible class by Tuesday, February 20. This form, signed by the student, approved by the parent and verified by the counselor, replaces the previous two-step process of online course requests and a Course Verification Sheet, and will be the basis of building the schedule.

Student schedules will be released one week before school begins.

Course Change Requests ("drop/add") may be made via a Course Change Request Form through the first five days of the semester. 

  • No course changes can be made between when Course Request Forms are submitted and the start of drop/add. 
  • Be thoughtful and prayerful about your course requests as you are making a commitment to them which may be be possible to change later.

The Academic Track Worksheets help guide students and parents through their prospective four-year math plan.

Math Track Worksheet

Core Course Tracks Worksheet

Begin with the left column (9th grade) and find the course in which you were (or expect to be) enrolled as a freshman. A double-underline indicates a break between the tracks that start in the freshman year.

Move right through the grade level columns to see the options available.

Pay close attention to the academic prerequisites for each possible course. In some cases, final course placement cannot be determined until Semester 2 grades are final. 

 

  • academic discipline = also known as academic department; core course content areas plus elective course content areas
  • academic pathway = concentration of courses in a specific academic discipline which earns a student Pathway Endorsement on the diploma and recognition at graduation; see Course Guide for details on pathways
  • Academic Placement Waiver Request = formal request to have prerequisites waived by the school to allow placement in a more rigorous course; not required to move from an advanced course to a less rigorous course
  • alternate course = a course that differs from the course recommended by the school; enrollment is not guaranteed; an Academic Placement Waiver Request is required if requesting a more advanced course 
  • core course = English, math, science, social studies, world languages; at LCA, Bible courses are also consider core courses
  • Course Guide = annually published document which provides extensive information on course offerings, content descriptions, prerequisites, academic pathways, collegiate athletic eligibility requirements, recommended four-year academic plans and more
  • course length = all courses are either single-semester or full year in length
  • course level = College Prep (CP) - foundational, on-grade course; Honors (H) - advanced academic rigor based on speed of content coverage, increased degree of content depth and higher standard of content mastery; Advanced Placement (AP) - college-level curriculum designed by the College Board for which a student may earn college credit based on an end-of-course national test; Dual Credit (DC) - college courses in which a student is accepted by and enrolled in a providing college or university and which earns both high school and college credit; typically, DC courses earn 3 college credits and, because they are completed in a single-semester timeline, earn 0.5 high school credit; Dual Credit Elective (DCE) - Dual Credit courses taken independently which do not fulfill a graduation requirement (elective) and do not factor into the Weighted Cumulative GPA (WCGPA) for the purposes of graduation honors
  • credit (cr) = unit earned by successful completion of coursework and which is multiplied by the numeric value of the grade earned in the grade point average (GPA); single-semester courses are 0.5 credit, full year courses are 1.0 credit, AP Microeconomics and AP Macroeconomics are 1.0 credit courses taught in a semester time frame
  • elective = non-core courses, specifically those in the art & humanities, business & law, technology & engineering
  • grade point average (GPA) = mathematical calculation based on a standard 4.0 scale (90-100/A=4.0, 80-89/B=3.0, 70-79/C=2.0, 65-69/D=1.0, 0-64/F=0.0)
  • graduation requirements = the total number of credits in each academic discipline required to earn a diploma; Bible=4, English=4, math=4, science=3, social studies=3, world languages=2, arts/humanities=1, health=0.5, physical education=0.5, public speaking=0.5, electives=3; Total=25.5
  • prerequisite = any requirement that must be met in order for a course to be available; prerequisites may be limited to a specific grade level, the earned grade in a previous course or concurrent enrollment in a partner course in another academic discipline
  • quality points = bonus points factored into the GPA for advanced coursework; Honors +0.5 (A=4.5, B=3.5, C=2.5, D=1.5), AP and DC +1.0 (A=5.0, B=4.0, C=3.0, D=2.0, AP F=0.0, DC F=1.0)
  • recommended course = the course that has been determined to be the best option based upon the academic record and teacher evaluation of student's ability to succeed; the default course that is next in the track sequence following the current course
  • weighted cumulative GPA (WCGPA) = GPA that includes ALL courses taken (excluding Dual Credit Electives) calculated with advanced courses awarded a higher value based on quality points

To be considered for an advanced course for which you were a) not recommended or b) do not meet the prerequisites you must submit an Academic Placement Waiver Request (links below). The APW request will be reviewed by the appropriate academic department. If approved, a conditional enrollment in the advanced course will be processed with the possibility that LCA will make an enrollment change, if necessary, based on academic performance.

2024-2025 High School Course Guide

The course request process for 2024-2025 will begin on Wednesday, February 8, with an informational assembly. Detailed instructions on the course request process will be provided at the assembly and via email. 

Students who do not meet the prerequisites or have not been recommended for advanced courses may submit a request to be approved for the course. The Academic Placement Waiver request will be reviewed by the student's counselor and the academic department. If approved, the student may be conditionally enrolled in the requested course. Continued enrollment is contingent upon successful academic performance in the course, which will be evaluated both within the first four weeks of the course and at the mid-year semester break. A hard copy of the waiver form is also available to pick up in the High School Office.

Students do not need to submit an Academic Placement Waiver to opt out of an advanced (Honors or AP) course and into a College Prep-level course.
