The Admissions Process
Lucas Christian Academy is organized around the foundational premise that meaningful and positive parental mentoring makes the biggest difference in a child's education. Thus, admission into LCA is a deliberate and intentional process designed to thoroughly inform the interested parents.
LCA is right for your family if...
You believe you are your child's first and most important teacher; You believe that, as the parent, you are responsible for your child's education; You want to spend more time with your children; You believe parents are to travel the journey called education with their children, and you consider it a joy and privilege to do so; You have a need and desire to partner with gifted and professional teachers in a character-based academic environment, appealing to students' hearts as well as their minds; You desire to intentionally position yourself toward your child and his/her educational needs, putting their needs over your own; You believe schools are poor substitutes for parents.
During the first half of an Admissions Meeting you will hear from our LCA administration and have the opportunity to hear their hearts in regard to their ministry and responsibilities at the school; you then will receive an admission's folder which contains information on how to proceed with the applications process & placement testing which will be explained thoroughly; and a tour of the school. The second half will be a break-out session with the Elementary and Secondary Directors who will inform interested parents of all the details of the academic walk.
Please see Admissions Tours/Dates tab to register to attend an upcoming meeting.
After prayerful consideration, if a family decides to proceed in the admissions process at LCA, the student application must be completed online and submitted at the instructed date and time. Each student is then registered for placement testing.
For placement into kindergarten and first grade, a daytime one-on-one evaluation is scheduled. *No testing for incoming PreK.
All potential 2nd - 12th grade students must take a placement test for core classes and certain electives. These tests are generally conducted on Thursdays.
Please see Placement Testing tab for more information.
The final step in the admissions process is the family interview which gives each family the opportunity to have any remaining questions answered and for all to better discern if LCA is the right school for their family. Both parents, any potential co-teachers, and all potential students must attend the interview.
