Graduating seniors often use one word to describe life at LCA: family. There is a deep and genuine sense of community that grows throughout one’s time at LCA. Middle school students are members of their grades, but the high school students also respect them and intentionally reach out to include them in many school activities. Ninth graders have an orientation retreat during which they get to know each other before school even starts. Grade lunches are held throughout the year to build community and allow students to discuss shared issues or interests. Faculty and staff also develop relationships with students further strengthening that sense of community and family.
Within its strong sense of community, student life at LCA offers numerous other opportunities to learn, grow, stretch, lead, perform, compete, compose or reflect. Some of these opportunities occur within specific programs, and some simply occur within the "daily day" life of being a member of the LCA community. Students are encouraged to make new friends, try new activities or sports, and always to be involved at LCA in some way beyond the classroom.
There is also a strong sense of faith that exists within life at LCA. One graduating senior put it this way:
"But what exactly is it about LCA that makes this community so special? I've given this a lot of thought and as far as I can tell, the most unique aspect of the community is the sense that there is a force bigger than us at work. The people here are aware of and reverent towards God, and put their trust in Him. What sets us apart from so many other institutions of learning that may look similar is our common faith in and shared love for Christ. Without that, we would not be the Lexington Christian Academy that we know and love. Nor would be as effective a community reaching out to each other and into our world."
