Life Christian School Ratings & Reviews

February 05, 2015 Submitted by a parent
My son attended Kindergarten at LCA and we were both very happy. He is now in 3rd grade in public school in another city and he still tells me he misses LCA. His teacher was so loving with the kids, as were all of the teaching aids and school staff. There was an aid named Ms. "C" who did special little wood-working and art projects with the kids after school, my son loved her. Many of the other mommies frequently told me how much they loved their high school children attending LCA; one mommy told me she felt like all the teachers and staff were like aunts and uncles to her kids. I will say, the small drawbacks were that not being a wealthy, well-known member of Life Christian Church, as a parent, I sometimes felt "little." This could have been my own insecurities, but some of the other parents I knew at the time mentioned similar feelings. But, that's anywhere! There are always going to be kids who's families have more money than your kid, or more important parents; and we could have made more of an effort to be involved as well. If we ever moved back to the area, I would definitely consider enrolling my children here again.

I have to say something after reading these reviews. I have gone to Life Christian my entire life and have felt so overwhelmed with love from the staff. The teachers genuinely care about the students academically, emotionally, and above all spiritually. Reading these reviews most of them are outdated and almost all the complaints have been taken care of. My school always strives to improve and listens to feedback. Life Christian is a great community and school. I have learned so much there spiritually and academically. I love LCA it's my second home and if you are considering enrollment I would strongly suggest it. The school is obviously not perfect but it is a true Christian environment. The kind of compassion and leadership the coaches, teachers, and administration show is something I honestly don't believe you'll find anywhere else. I love my school and though it may not be for everyone it's a place that is blessed with true Godly men and women.

I was a student who graduated from Life Christian recently. I have attended both private and public school throughout my schooling. Many comments on written below seem to complain about the emphasis on religion within the school. Of course that is one of the biggest aspects of the school. Yes, acadmemics are important but you are paying extra for an education in religion, for teachers to pray and spiritually guide you. If you want a school solely focused on academics attend Charles Wright, or Bellarmine Prep (where students can attend study hall instead of mass.) That being said, there are many high school teachers that challenge their students both academically and spiritually as well as those teachers that are not as effective. However, the administration has let go certain teachers and replaced them. They are still in this process. Additionally, I wholeheartedly disagree with the comment based on teachers pulling their own children out or admitting public school kids who were kicked out of local high schools. Life Christian believes that GOD can change hearts, despite the circumstances. Though many of these kids are not perfect, there are many cases of lives being transformed

If you are going to spend this kind of money why not go to bellarmine prep down the road, which is much stronger academically and has many distinguished alumni? It seems outrageous to pay tuition to a very average school, educationally.

Please don't judge this school by a couple of reviews. Talk to people whose children go there or are alumni. LCA is a loving Christian school that prepares students for college and life.
