Lexington, Massachusetts, USA
Located in historic Lexington, Massachusetts, Lexington Christian Academy is one of Greater Boston's most established independent college preparatory day and boarding schools which integrates faith and learning. LCA was founded in 1946 in the heart of Boston, and provides an academically challenging education while supporting students’ passions in areas outside the classroom.
LCA students enjoy small classes in a beautifully updated campus with the 430-seat Cross Worship and Performing Arts Center and new Fitness Center, fully equipped computer labs with image, photo, and video editing software, as well as a 3D printer. With a student – teacher ratio of 11:1, students get the chance to work closely with peers and faculty alike. LCA offers both need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships.
Athletics and Fine Arts work together to provide a holistic educational experience where students and families alike are welcome to experience all that LCA has to offer. 85% of the student body was involved in at least one season of interscholastic sports in 2015-2016. Students can choose to enroll in any of 14 classes in the Arts as well as Theatrical studies, musical performance, and community service.
As a college prep institution, LCA features a 2-year Academic Advising program followed by 2 years of College Advising. Our focus is on helping students discover their talents and passions as well as their aptitude in life; and helping them to find the college that best fits their needs, goals, and personality.
Graduates of LCA are fully prepared to thrive at the college level academically, personally, and spiritually. LCA enjoys a vibrant Alumni Network of professionals in finance, philanthropy, arts, sciences, and research.
Students in grades 9 and 10 are supported with a dedicated Academic Advisor to individually develop a purposeful academic plan for college and beyond. They meet one-on-one to explore what they are passionate about and how this can become part of their plan.
Grades 11 and 12 are supported through College Advising to further refine their plan and explore the college choices that are the best fit for them individually.
We are a proud member of the Eastern Independent League and offer 13 Varsity sports plus Junior Varsity options. Over 80% of our student body participates in at least one sport and over 60% compete in multiple seasons.
Our coaches and teachers collaborate to minimize conflicts between athletics and class schedules, and provide extra help sessions and other events that ensure the complete experience of an LCA education. We want our athletes to develop qualities such as teamwork, self-discipline, leadership, confidence, servanthood, and respect - all qualities that prepare LCA students for the classroom, arts, spiritual and professional lives.
Winning is always a goal for our teams, but equally prioritized is the important task of imparting live skills and values in our student-athletes that will endure long after the season ends.
The Arts Division at LCA reaches over 95% of our diverse student body with an engaging education in the disciplines of Instrumental and Vocal Music, Visual Arts, and Theatre. A collaborative department of active, professional artists instruct students towards a faith-infused love and understanding of the importance and implications of practicing creativity and expression. By offering abundant opportunities to students of all interests, backgrounds and skill levels, we provide students with a balanced and in depth experience navigating the physical world through the artful use of their voices, bodies and through the creation of objects. Through encouragement, exploration, and the cultivation of curiosity in our students, the LCA Arts Division proudly graduates students with a deep understanding of why the arts are an essential part of their education
