About LCA

Lakes Church Academy is an educational institution where students are encouraged to explore the world around them with a biblical worldview. We believe that God created each student uniquely, and we want to help them become more than conquerors for His Kingdom. Our goal is to equip students with the tools they need to be successful in life and serve as ambassadors of Christ throughout their community.
