A teacher-led, classical education experience.
Our mission is to educate the minds and inspire the hearts of young people through a content-rich, classical education in the liberal arts and sciences, with instruction in the principles of moral character and civic virtue.
Lake Country Classical Academy (LCCA) addresses the real need for tuition-free, high quality, teacher-led education,
K-12. There is a desire among many families in Lake Country for a teacher-led, classical education experience. We believe that all students should have access to this option, regardless of their zip code, socioeconomic status, primary language or race. Classical Education upholds a standard of excellence and has proven itself over the course of time.
LCCA, a public (tuition-free) charter school, will initially serve kindergarten through 9th grade students beginning in Sept. 2021. LCCA will expand by one grade each year until fully serving grades K-12 by 2024.
LCCA will be a licensed user of the Hillsdale K-12 curriculum, providing a classical education that is content-rich across four disciplines: Math, Science, English Language Arts (including phonics, grammar and writing), and History, with significant attention to music, art, and foreign language. Each of these disciplines will be taught with an emphasis on the history and traditions of American citizens as the inheritors of Western civilization.
We believe LCCA’s high standards and research-based curriculum will provide students with a content-rich education that will challenge them to excel not only in learning, but also in character development. At LCCA, high academic achievement, personal discipline, ethics, and responsibility will be consistently reinforced through the study of subjects in the classical tradition. Students will graduate from LCCA as highly literate and ethical citizens who are well-prepared to advance into any life endeavor.
