Lafayette Christian Academy is a wonderful school. It supports an atmosphere of growth and learning. Lafayette Christian Academy has impacted my life in ways I could never explain. The teachers have pushed me to give my best, and they truly care about the students. The Christian influence has impacted who I am today. I have developed so many strong friendships through Lafayette Christian Academy. The sports programs are absolutely phenomenal. The coaches are 100% dedicated to the students and encourage them to support one another. Lafayette Christian Academy’s sports programs have one several state championships in several sports. Lafayette Christian Academy’s academics are also great. The teachers genuinely care about the lessons and aim to make them applicable to your every day life. This school is pretty cool.

I’ve honestly liked my experience at Lafayette Christian Academy. I like the diversity we have at our school and how everyone gets along well. It’s a very small school so everyone knows each other. I also love how it’s a Christian school and how the school puts God first because I believe in Jesus and I have a lot of Faith in him. My name is even Faith lol. Although I like my school there are things I do wish were different. It is easy to get a detention and when I say easy I mean very easy. They are a little strict on things that aren’t important and unnoticeable but I understand where they come from since it is a private school. So I’ve had a pretty good experience so far and I’m beyond ready to graduate!
As a student who has attended LCA ever since kindergarten, I have a very genuine outlook towards this school. The positive definitely outweighs the negative, in my personal opinion. Hardly any complaints can be said, and for the few that did arise, they weren't critical. What I love about LCA is that it follows the Word of God. In every class, sport, teacher, and student, God is the main focus. Because of that, I pay LCA the highest respects. Although this school does have many great attributes, there's just one minor change that needs to be done. There should be a larger selection of electives available. LCA has a very small list to choose from. Hopefully in the near future, the choices of electives will increase so students have more available options. Besides that, LCA is definitely the most amazing school I know.
