Our Admissions Process    

We want you to have an opportunity to feel comfortable with our facilities, our staff, and our Kingdom Education philosophy.  Our online application is always available and ready for you.

At this time, for the safety of all our students, faculty, families and visitors, the campus and buildings of Legacy Christian Academy are closed. We have moved learning from the classrooms to the home and our students in the Preschool, Elementary, Middle, and High School participate in our online learning program taught online by members of the LCA faculty.

Just as learning continues, our Admissions Office remains open and available to assist any prospective families. We continue to accept applications for the 2020-21 academic year and have several options available for you to reach us and learn more about the many benefits of a Legacy Christian Academy education. 

The health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, families and prospective students and families is always our highest priority.

We encourage a virtual campus visit or phone call to answer any questions you may have. Once an application is submitted, phone interviews and (later) testing will ensure that LCA is a good fit for you and your family.

For new enrollment, registration begins in February. After the initial enrollment period, applications are considered on a rolling basis as space allows.

 

Step 1: Alternatives to an On Campus Visit

Schedule a Phone Meeting

We are here to help! We encourage all interested families to reach out to Laura Gazzaway, Admissions Coordinator at lgazzaway@lcasa.org to set up a time to speak.

Schedule a Zoom Face-to-Face Meeting

If you prefer to speak to us face-to-face, let’s connect digitally on Zoom. Please email Laura Gazzaway at lgazzaway@lcasa.org to schedule a time to speak.

 

Step 2: Apply Online

Our online application is comprehensive, so we recommend you fill out the New Family Application as completely as possible. Most delays in processing come from incomplete applications. Below is a checklist of items you’ll need to complete your application:

  • LCA will need to request grades, test scores, disciplinary records, transcripts (high school) from the applicant’s current (or most recent) school
  • Immunization Records (if available at time of submission, otherwise MUST be submitted to school by the first day of school)
  • Pastoral Reference form
  • Non-refundable application fee

 

Step 3: Preliminary Review

Our LCA administrators will review your completed application and evaluate potential openings. Based on their evaluation, appointments for interviews and testing are made.

 

Step 4: Interviews and Testing

An LCA staff member will contact you to set up a time for a phone interview. Testing may be waived or delayed for a later date, depending on the grade level. We appreciate your patience during this time. In a parent interview, an administrator will discuss our philosophy and school programming with the applicant’s parents.

Elementary, middle, and high school students take a group of brief individually-administered, standardized tests. The results will help us determine appropriate grade placement. We’ll also gladly share the results of these tests with parents.

 

Step 5: Final Decision

LCA administrators make decisions concerning enrollment as a team. Therefore, the final decision may take up to a week after the interview/testing appointment to allow for team discussion. You can expect a call from someone on the administrative team concerning the final decision.

In making a decision, the administrative team will consider things like:

  • Is LCA able to meet the student’s academic, social, and physical needs?
  • Are the student’s parents supportive of the school’s Christ-centered philosophy so that a partnership with the school can develop?
  • Is the student under his or her parents’ authority and willing to follow the school’s lifestyle guidelines?
  • Does the student desire to attend LCA?
