Head of School Highlights September 2019 LaVonne McIlrath, LCA Head of School

"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves." Romans 12:10


Our school theme this year is "RESPECT". In each classroom throughout the year we will be focusing on what it means to be respectful to each other and to honor others above ourselves. The idea that it's actually NOT about me is certainly a much needed perspective in light of the "selfie" society in which we live. The theme is a perfect followup to our "KINDNESS" theme from last year, going beyond being KIND to valuing other individuals and holding them in high esteem. Each day at LCA we are planting seeds of truth based on God's Word. The Bible teaches that we are made in the image of God, and our desire is that each student feels loved and valued, assured that they are designed by God for His special purpose.

"You can count the number of seeds in an apple, but you can't count the number of apples in a seed."

Liberty Christian Academy is experiencing another year of record enrollment with 487 students in Preschool through High School! With the addition of our Preschool Campus we now have 6 full Preschool classes. The Lord is continuing to faithfully bless the ministry as we are faithful to remain true to our mission. To Him be the glory!
