International Students

At Lexington Christian Academy, we are proud of our long tradition of welcoming international students into our community. Currently, LCA’s international students represent a variety of countries, including Brazil, Japan, China, Nigeria, South Korea and Taiwan. These students live in our beautiful residence hall on our North Campus a short distance from the Main Campus. We actively seek to promote better understanding between cultures in the classroom and in the world.


We are pleased to accept qualified international boarding students entering grades 9 - 11. International students entering Middle School grades (6 - 8) must live locally (In-State) with their parent(s), with the exception of 8th graders who are enrolled in our AECIP program. At LCA we do not accept international students who plan to live in a Home Stay.
