Great learning environment, especially for people who like individual help. Small class sizes and great teachers. Teachers care about individual development academically and spiritually. Great sports programs including national winning cheer team.

I moved to LCA when my parents relocated to Tacoma. I am challenged and stretched by my teachers on a daily basis. I feel that I am being provided with a 'balanced' preparation for College. I want to go to Stanford and know that I am being well prepared. My teachers encourage and support me while loving me. My Faith is strengthened with a fabulous retreats and inspirational chapels. I love the athletic program and being a part of something fun but difficult. My only regret is that I wont graduate as a 'lifer'.
I enjoyed my time here. The administration in general isn't very good and needs somebody like Bob Absten. I appreciate the teachers at the school but they do need to hire more teachers like Mr. Madlena and Mr. Cherubs. The spiritual life is emphasized here and cannot go unnoticed. The bond between the each student in every class is uncanny and I am amazed by the friendliness of the students here. The classes do need to be a lot more rigorous and NEED more AP classes. There are only 2-3 AP classes last time I checked and the faculty here doesn't care much about how well prepared each student is for the SAT/ACT. They need to put in a SAT/ACT prep class in zero hour or after school. To address academic development, the LIFE program is the best program in the state and there is nothing else like it. Ms. Haskins and Mrs. Lerew are the best at their jobs and provide the best help you can get for your child.
