Applying to LCA

Welcome! Thank you so much for your interest in joining our community!  The Application Process at LCA can seem daunting and exhaustive at first glance, but each piece of our application allows the Admission Committee to get to know each student and family more completely.

Every community is made up of individuals, and at LCA we are incredibly proud of our community.  The Admissions Team at LCA sets out to accomplish the goal of bringing together a group of individuals that make up our Student Body.  In speaking with any member of our Admissions Team you will hear us describe the Admissions Process here as a process of "fit."

We warmly invite you to describe what makes you and your student unique, special, and overall a great "fit" for LCA!
