We strive to create a hospitable environment for our community. Currently, more than one fourth of our students come from diverse backgrounds, the highest percentage since the founding of the school.
We are earnestly and intentionally working toward ensuring the following:
- Lexington Christian Academy is a safe place for all students
- No one feels like an "outsider"
- Our faculty and staff are well-prepared for lessons that address race-related issues and that they are culturally aware of the language that is used in and out of the classroom
- A safe atmosphere for students to speak to any teacher, staff member or administrator
- Lessons, presentations and dialogues dispel stereotypes and empower students of all backgrounds
Our continuing efforts at hospitality include:
- One member of the Prefect Leadership Board is specifically dedicated to our hospitality efforts. The Multi-cultural Prefect leads our diversity club and events, regularly raises awareness of relevant issues in chapel, assemblies, and leadership decisions.
- FLAVA (Friends Learning About Various Areas) is the club that celebrates the diverse cultures represented by the community, addresses issues related to predjudice, discrimination, and inequality while working to making all people feel welcomed.
- S.O.C. Lunch is an affinity group for students of color that provides a safe environment with an adult mentor to affirm and explore aspects of their identity, as well as provide for each other guidance and support for interacting with those who might not share, understand, or respect that identity.
