Our Faculty


You can trust the teachers at Lakes Church Academy. All of our teachers are mature Christians who are able to clearly articulate their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our teachers are required to have at least one year of teaching experience and hold a state-issued Professional License. Most have a Bachelor’s Degree in Education and several go above and beyond with master’s degrees and advanced training on a national level. Our desire is for your child to get an excellent Biblical worldview education in a Christ-centered environment.
