The inerrant, infallible Word of God is the benchmark that measures all that a child learns, All truth is God’s truth. Academy teachers integrate the principles of Scripture into every subject. Standardized test scores place Liberty students above the national average. Academy students have regularly placed in the highest percentile academically since 2001. The Bob Jones University Press curriculum from Bob Jones University is used in elementary grades 1-6.
Our Kindergarten students will enjoy a full day of instruction as they tackle the basics of elementary education. By the end of kindergarten, students will be able to read, write, and do basic math. Students will also enjoy extra-curricular activities such as art, recess, and library time. Chapel is held weekly where students enjoy a special time of worship, as well as a challenging and age-appropriate message from the Word of God.
We are committed to excellence in all that we do at LCA. In fact, the ABC’s at Liberty stand for Academically excellent, Bible-based, Character-focused education. Our teachers are highly dedicated and well qualified Christians who love the Lord, children, and teaching. We use a mixture of ABeka, BJU Press, and Purposeful Design (ACSI) curriculum to help students master the core subjects and better equip them for undergraduate studies. Liberty students consistently place above the national average on standardized tests each year, many placing in the highest tiers nationally; however, the greatest asset for your child at Liberty is not just academics, but also the strong Christ-centered atmosphere. Our sincere desire is to assist parents in helping their children reach their God-given potential–spiritually, academically, and socially.

The academy students are challenged to compete in one of the many fine arts programs offered at LCA. Whether it’s academic testing, choir, photography, ensembles, musical solos (vocal or instrumental), dramatic interpretation, etc., all fine arts competitions are held annually and are sanctioned by the Association of Christian Schools International.
Headmaster online allows parents to track their child’s progress on a daily basis. Parents can log in to view homework, behavior memos, billing statements, etc. Each parent is issued a username and password upon their child’s acceptance to the academy. ACS Technologies has recently launched a new app where parents can track progress, pay their bill, etc. from the convenience of their mobile phone.
“If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds and instill into them just principles, we are then engraving upon tablets which no time will efface, but will brighten and brighten to all eternity.”
