"There are many questions and difficult challenges that middle-schoolers and high-schoolers face. LCA created a strong foundation in my faith and biblical knowledge and gave me a moral compass to use as I entered college. I felt stable and mature in my beliefs when I entered college and the real world, which I accredit to LCA and the influence it had on me."
–Kaitlyn Evans ‘03
"It all started with LCA. I had great support from people like Mrs. Schuhmacher and many more LCA faculty, staff, friends and families who helped my family in difficult situations and teachers who invested in me."
–Arnold Kawuba '06
"I appreciated being involved in a smaller, more intimate environment where a teacher could pull you aside and say, “Wow, you can sing.” I don’t think that happens at a bigger school. And that happened across the board at LCA."
–Keri Clayborne Boyle '91
"The teachers put everything they had into teaching. They took the time to talk to you. A lot of people laid the groundwork for my faith here."
–Mike Petrocelli '84
"The thing that I appreciated about LCA that helped me grow a lot academically, intellectually and spiritually was the fact that in all of my classes there was a commitment to rigorous and critical examination of whatever it was we were doing."
–Lydia Brown '11
“How well I remember when we traveled downtown to Boston to put on concerts at John Hancock’s Dorothy Quincy Suite, just as we made our way to B&N for basketball games. There was so much we didn’t have in those early years, yet looking back, it’s now so clear that we had everything we needed, especially a faculty that taught us sacrificially and loved us unconditionally."
"Christian High School meant so much to me."
"LCA prepared me in ways I have slowly appreciated more and more on my way in to the adult and professional world. Happy to give back for the next generation."
"My life was touched eternally by teachers like Belle Strickland and Grace Pierson, and when I think of that new Performing Arts Center I hear echoes of Amy Young Burns and Bennie Goodwin encouraging us to make a joyful noise” around the piano in the chapel. Precious memories, indeed.”
"I am pushed at LCA, and I know that I have been given a strong, Christian education that will stay with me throughout the rest of my life."
"Mrs. Bulger has always been there for me. She is such a talented teacher and musician. She is devoted to God and her students. She helps me improve my voice technically, but more importantly she has helped me to gain confidence in myself."
"The Arts Concentration has given me the opportunity to mature my voice, focus on technique, expand my repertoire, and gain confidence."
"Girls like me from inner city neighborhoods can often only dream of going to college. Because of your donation, I know that dream will come true. I know that I will be successful because of the education I have received at LCA."
"I think playing sports at LCA encompasses most of the valuable morals that I took with me from LCA. I learned how to love my sisters in Christ, encourage one another and sharpen each other as iron sharpens iron."
"I felt when I was here it was okay for me to have my opinion, even if the vast majority of students and faculty that I knew here did not agree with me. I was never made to feel that I was less than other students or that if I didn’t say the exact same thing as the person next to me that I would be given a poor grade or that I would be socially excluded. That was very valuable to me because my entire life I have been singled out because of what has set me apart from whoever I’m in the room with, whether be that I’m a woman, I’m Asian, my disability status or the fact that I’m a Christian. To be in a community where people didn’t use those things as an excuse to make my life miserable was awesome. LCA was the first place that I really had that experience and that was probably the most valuable part of my education at LCA."
"I appreciated being involved in a smaller, more intimate environment where a teacher could pull you aside and say, “Wow, you can sing.” I don’t think that happens at a bigger school. And that happened across the board at LCA. I met Coach Campbell and she encouraged me to play sports. Everywhere I went there was someone in authority that was a mentor and encouraging me—drama, music, sports, academics. What makes LCA unique is that it was always very clear that our teachers were our authority but there was also a friendship there too."
"The thing that I appreciated about LCA that helped me grow a lot academically, intellectually and spiritually was the fact that in all of my classes there was a commitment to rigorous and critical examination of whatever it was we were doing. It was never, 'read this book and memorize the key themes' but let’s actually probe the issues that the author is hinting at, what other texts have you read in either fiction or non-fiction can you pull in to help you analyze the text. Those are invaluable skills academically."
“We love the opportunity to give back in small ways when we can. LCA has been so generous to us over the past three years!”
“God bless LCA!”
“Thank you all and wish all of you have a wonderful holiday seasons!”
“Donated in honor of our daughter's teachers.”
“Keep going strong, LCA!”
