Our children have been in this school for 3 years and we have been absolutely thrilled with the caliber of instruction and a true focus on building christian character. Teachers ARE certified and very caring. I could not ask for a better experience. There is a lot of structure and rigor to their instructional program. Many important subjects that fall by the wayside in the era of testing are not lost here. Mr. Edge the principal is very attentive to parent concerns and very involved with our children. There are other private schools in the area that may offer more in terms of sports but I am sending my children to school for academics. However they do offer very convenient access to different sports year round. The school truly offers what I expected when we enrolled our children. The great part about this is you do not have to take my word--go in and see for yourself and I guarantee you will be pleased from the first interaction.

My son entered into sixth grade coming from a public school. The teachers here are so amazing. I was worried that since he had a late start entering from public school the teachers would get frustrated at his behavior. It was just the opposite. My son was given slack by his awesome teacher Mrs. Sarah Duffy because she inderstood where he was coming from and took it into consideration. The children are so nice and well behaved which is a huge difference from his last school where he was in trouble and in fights almost every day trying to defend himself and other students who wouldn't stand up for themselves. I feel so Blessed that God led us here. I hope to see my son graduate from this wonderful academy someday.
This is a wonderful school. Students are loved by teachers that strive to be Christ-like. In reference to the Nov. 7 2007 post I would like to say that students are given several warnings before issuing a demerit. They wipe the slate clean meaning they start back at zero at 2nd semester and try to teach students that it is their choices that bring about good or bad consequences. Once a demerit is issued or a detention is served the students are reminded that it is behind them and that they should press forward. Sometimes parents have a hard time admitting that their child could do wrong. In fact we are all capable of wrong doing but there are consequences. Love this school!
My children have been at LCA for 7 years and I am so thankful for the blessing that this school has been to my family. The teachers are well qualified and true servants of the Lord. May God continue to bless LCA.
I'm not at all pleased with this school. I think the educational quality is lacking. The class size is too large and I believe it is hurting the students. I was disappointed to learn that most teachers do not have teaching degrees. I wouldn't suggest this school but if you do make sure you do your homework and ask MANY questions. My sons will not be returning.
Great school! My daughter started this year and she loves the teachers and I feel she gets the education she needs.
Coming from another Christian school in the area let me tell you that this is the best by far! Affordable not a school that believes everyone has to go to college not a bunch of rcih snobs---but down to earth teachers and students that really seem to care. The education plan is structured and follows a plan/curriculmn--not thrown together like another Christian school in the area.
Our family has been at LCA for five years now. We have four children K5 to 5th grade. Can not say enough good things about LCA. The teachers are awesome and the enviroment is one of love and joy. God is blessing our school and we consider it a true blessing from Him to be a part of it. It is NOT a private school made up of a bunch of 'rich' kids but rather of families sacrificing and working hard to give their children a Christ centered education in this 'unGodly' world.
Liberty Christian Academy is the best educational experience I have every been a part of. I teach at a local Bible College and all three of my children attend LCA. They love the school and would not want to go anywhere else. As of this school year computers are being taught from 2nd grade and up. LCA has sports for all ages Cub Scouts for the younger boys and the Bible for everyone. Again in 47 years I can honesly say this is the best school I have every been a part of.
We at LCA believe our discipline system is fair firm and consistent. LCA strictly states in its handbook that the school cannot except children with severe behavioral or learning disabilities. We do offer warnings before we issue demerits and we only double demerits when a student continues to abuse specific rules. If a student is caught chewing gum he receives one demerit. If he is caught chewing gum again the penalty is now two demerits. It is unfortunate to read reviews by parents like Nov. 7 2007 because we do love and care for each child. Children need love structure and discipline in order to achieve their God-given potential but we do not believe in behavioral modification. We are not a perfect school but we truly strive to be like Christ in all that we do.
LCA was orginally what seemed to be an answered prayer however in the last year my son has struggled because of their demerit system. THis is not a school for you if your child struggles with ADHD. They offer no warning they issue demerits and then add past demerits on which never allows a child to catch up or build any confidence. I was happy with the school now I am terribly disappointed!!!!
My family has been with LCA for 3+ years with students in PreK thru middle school. Strong phonics and math skills are the best building blocks for a successful education. Even the weakest teachers are strong. Focus is on Biblical reference(it IS a Christian School)Extracurricular activities are moving from formative to functional and growing. Parents are encouraged to be involved; the online headmaster and weekly grade folders makes tracking your child's progress easy. The classroom atmosphere is welcoming and personality building versus negative and derogatory (as seen in public school) Great alternative for those living in Hoke county.
My child attends Liberty Christian. We were impressed with the small class size the emphasis on disciple and good behavior and the strong focus on phonics/reading in the lower grades. We also like that we are able to readily contact our child's teacher if we have any concerns/issues. But on the negative side the school does not offer computer instruction until the 7th grade; so we work on this subject at home with our child. Also the school in our opinion does not have enough science curriculum and too much focus on Bible studies. We feel that Liberty Christian is a good school for the lower grades (with the addition of computer instruction at home) but may not be what we want for high school. Our plan is for our child to attend a major university (ie the UNC system Duke) but Liberty focuses mainly on Baptist colleges.
My son was struggling greatly in public schools and then I found LCA. He loves this school. He is still struggling a little. But not like in public school.I have met the principal and many of his teachers and all I can say is awesome.
I was leaving a public school to come to Liberty Christian Academy because my mother herd good things about it. I am so glad she did cause they were all true. I love this school. It is nice to have a place where you are truly loved and cared for. It is a home away from home!
