LCA Lower School

Curriculum

The lower school program (grades K-4) provides opportunity for intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical development. The student's educational experiences are achieved in a caring environment where each individual feels important, secure, and successful. Emphasis is placed on listening, reading, writing, and reasoning; comprehension and expression of ideas; recognition of facts and concepts; and the development of athletic and creative talents.

LCA utilizes textbooks and supplements from numerous publishers including, but not limited to, ABeka Book, ACSI, Bob Jones University Press, CSI, and Saxon Publishers, Inc. Academic subjects are integrated with Biblical truth.

As a Christian educator, I strive to incorporate the spiritual, personal, and academic aspects of my student's lives into our daily learning. I believe each child should feel that he or she is important and loved while being challenged to be the best student that they can possibly be.

I believe that each student has individual strengths and weaknesses and each one should be nurtured to work up to their individual potential. I believe that it is the Christian school's responsibility, working with the parent, to develop students spiritually as well as academically and socially.
