Short Term Hosting Opportunity

LCA is in need of short-term host families for a group of Japanese teachers coming to visit our school for 1 week in February. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a new culture, make new friends and have a lot of fun! These adult female teachers will arrive February 8 and stay until February 15. The requirements for our host families are to bring the teachers to LCA each morning by 8:30am and pick up at 3:30pm. You would also provide dinner for them each evening and meals on the weekend. Compensation is provided.  Again, this is a great, short-term opportunity for you and your family to experience another culture and get to know these amazing ladies who are coming to learn from our teachers at LCA! If you have any questions or are interested in hosting, please contact Karen Miller at Thanks SO much in advance for your help!

Preview Night

Make plans now to join us for Preview Night on March 2nd at 6pm! This will be a great night to get a glimpse of the upcoming 2020-2021 school year, to meet your teachers, see your classrooms and hear all about what is to come and the exciting new things happening at LCA for the next school year!! We hope to see you there!

Travel Club

Traffic Flow

Attached is a flow chart for traffic here at LCA.  I know there are a lot of arrows on the picture but I promise it is not that hard to read.  If you are entering from the West or exiting to go west, please use the west entrance/exit.  If you are entering from the east or exiting to go east, please do so using the east entrance/exit.  Also, in the mornings, we have a “drive thru” drop off zone.  This is for parents that are not exiting their car but just dropping off their students at the door.  If you plan on getting out of the car with your student, please use the other lane to go around and park your vehicle in the parking spots.  We want to keep our kids safe and appreciate you helping us to do so.


Service Hours Opportunities

*Our Residential Homes are in need of twin mattresses and chests of drawers! If you have these items you would like to donate, service hours can be awarded! Please contact Mrs. Miller at with questions or to arrange donation!
