Arts & Athletics

  • Summary: LCA is committed to a strong athletic program that works side-by-side with our Academics and Arts to provide a balanced education for our students. Our student-athletes are fervently devoted to their endeavors in the classroom and exhibit that same passion on the fields of competition.

    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
