Lehigh Christian Academy has not adopted common core standards. Our courses are taught by teachers that are certified. Beyond the state academic standards we endeavor to provide rigorous, Christ-centered, Biblically-integrated academics so that our students grow in the wisdom and knowledge of Jesus Christ and have a Biblical worldview.
PRE-K & KDG
LCA believes that a solid educational and spiritual foundation is needed for future success.
LCA holds these years to be formative in building the foundation for educational and spiritual achievement.
These years provide an opportunity to nurture students as they develop spiritually, physically and emotionally.
LCA believes we should equip students with a Biblical worldview to take them where God leads them.
Bible is a core subject at LCA. From an academic standpoint, our students take Bible from Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade. However, God’s Word and the biblical worldview are the anchors from which we teach all subjects.
Curriculum for Bible:
Summit Ministries, Positive Action for Christ, ACSI and Bob Jones University
Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten
The foundation of all learning begins with their experiences in Pre-K and Kindergarten. Our program is rigorous and academic. Curriculum areas include Bible, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, as well as the development of motor and social skills. In addition, students begin classes in physical education, computer, library, Spanish, music, and art.
We believe that a solid educational foundation is needed for future academic success. We believe that Christian education is the partnership between parents and the school. Our program compels each student to be thoroughly grounded in necessary fundamentals of each core subject and we seek to maintain a high standard of academic achievement by instilling values and biblical principles. Students at LCA will take core subjects: math, social studies, science, language arts, handwriting, reading, spelling and Bible. They will take special classes in technology, music, art, library art and physical education.
Middle School Academics
At LCA, our faculty and staff partner with parents to help middle schoolers discover their security in Christ. Through attentive care, challenging curriculum, extracurricular activities in athletics and arts, and weekly biblical chapel services, your child will be equipped spiritually, academically, and socially. We provide a spiritual fall retreat and spring spiritual emphasis week that will encourage your student to dive deeper into their faith, as well as opportunities to serve.

Students that are two years behind their peers academically in language arts and math may qualify for learning support. Learning support comes along side the student and gives them the extra support they need to be successful in the classroom.
Enrichment and Clubs
In consistency with our academic beliefs and firm position “To provide a quality education that is Christ-centered,” we also offer enrichment programming for our students who have shown gifted characteristics within our accelerated curriculum. We also offer enrichment clubs for all students with special interests in areas such as technology and theater. The students in the enrichment program or clubs are challenged with materials that grow and expand their skills through group work and independent projects.
