Head of School Highlights September 2018 LaVonne McIlrath, LCA Head of School

"... do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31b

Our theme this year is Excellence. As a faculty and staff we are promoting excellence as, "...our ever-growing personal and collective best, as an offering to God...it's all for Jesus! He deserves our best, and our best today is different than our best from yesterday - our best for tomorrow will be better still!" Our Scripture of the Year fits perfectly with that theme - We want to do all that we do in a way that brings honor and glory to the Lord. You may see the word "Whatever!" around our building - the word is to remind us that "whatever" we do, we should do it all to the glory of God.

Liberty Christian Academy is experiencing another year of record enrollment with 440 students in preschool through high school! We have a full preschool and still have students on the waiting list. Our middle school has a 29% increase this year and our high school has grown by 43%! The Lord is continuing to faithfully bless the ministry as we are faithful to remain true to our mission of reaching students for Christ through a quality Christian education. To Him be the glory!

Educating with excellence!
