How do you teach Bible?
At LCA, students are taught everything within the framework of a Biblical worldview.  This means that whether students are learning about the intricacies of our solar system, the orderly structure of a mathematical equation, or the history of the world, they are doing so through the lens of a world created by God.   At LCA, biblical truths are woven into all aspects of our curriculum and are applied throughout the entire school day.  We also teach Bible as a daily course in Kindergarten through 6th grade using the curriculum “Positive Action for Christ.”

Are you affiliated with a specific church or denomination?
No.  Landenberg Christian Academy is a non-denominational, board-run school.   Please click here to view a copy of our statement of beliefs, which are based in the truth of the Bible.

What is your policy on discipline?
Our teachers utilize a variety of classroom management techniques to ensure a superior learning environment.  These techniques may include statements of positive reinforcement, reminders, redirection, time out, and notes or phone calls home to parents.  All discipline is conducted in an age appropriate, positive, and constructive manner.

Does LCA participate in Standardized Testing?
Yes.  Students in 3rd – 6th Grade take the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT 10) each Spring.   The SAT 10 is a nationally recognized test used to measure academic progress of individual students, as well as entire schools.  LCA students consistently rank extremely well when compared to other students across the country who also have taken the SAT 10. During the 2008-09 year, LCA students scored in the top seven percent nationwide for both Reading and Math. On average, LCA has scored in the top twelve percent for Reading in Math when compared to other students, primarily attending private schools, across the country.
