Our mission is to educate children with an emphasis on Holy Scripture, to instill the teachings of Jesus Christ as the foundation of all spiritual growth, to build moral character as academic excellence is pursued and to create a loving, nurturing environment where students are challenged to reach their God-given potential.
Llano Christian Academy has an outstanding staff that sets high standards for education excellence. This staff is led by a visionary headmaster, Dr. Alice Smith, who models and encourages innovation and creativity to help lead students to realize their full potential.
The root of education at LCA is the fact that Christian faith and learning are inseparable. Education at its core is the desire to learn and experience more of God through His masterpiece of creation. That being the case, religious education at LCA goes beyond Bible study class and daily chapel. Infused in the daily life of a student at LCA, both in and out of the classroom, are lessons that point to the goodness, grace and mercy of God.
In addition, each student's character is nurtured to help reflect the image of Jesus Christ. These lessons are demonstrated through the kindness and love of the staff, and through opportunities to minister to the community and beyond. Mini-mission trips are taken to area senior centers, soup kitchens, and shut-ins to help the students gain an appreciation for being a servant.
In our ever changing world it is impossible to prepare students for every situation they may face. One of the goals of LCA is to teach children how to take foundational information and apply it to life situations be it as an engineer, a nurse, a carpenter, or a parent. More than ever students need to be able to analyze, think, and respond to the world around them.
Academically, LCA sets high standards for each student. To help the students realize their potential LCA limits class size to ten children per class. This provides teachers with the opportunity to work closely with individual students and be able to tailor the education experience to meet their needs. The results have been seen in markedly improved performance both in the classroom and on standardized testing.
