At LCA, we believe that every student on our campus belongs here. We pray over every family, student, and faculty member before they join the LCA family. We believe that each member of the LCA family can benefit from an environment filled with people seeking to glorify God in every aspect of education. We believe there is one true God who exists in three persons. He sent his one and only Son to die in our place, forgive our sins, and reconcile us to Himself. We believe He did so because He loves us, desires to spend eternity with each of us, and seeks to glorify Himself in all things (Isaiah 48:11, 43:25).
In addition, we believe that God loves kids. In Luke 17, Jesus said it would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone around your neck than to cause harm to one of His little ones! God values children highly, a Truth that we take seriously!
At LCA we respect our students and try to affirm to them their divine value. We strive to encourage students to live in the Truth about who they are in Christ. We purpose to avoid condemnation and try as much as possible to disciple, encourage, and grow them in knowledge, understanding, and relationship with Jesus (Ephesians 1:18-19).
This is the basis for all Student Life at LCA; from daily atmosphere and environment, spiritual growth and discipleship, to our code of conduct and the approach to discipline, and athletics, arts and activities. Everything has an underlying purpose of teaching, promoting, and affirming who they are in Christ as we help them discover how His Word guides every aspect of their lives.
