The Lower School program at LCA offers a rigorous, Christ-centered academic curriculum taught from a Biblical worldview. Our Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 classes learn by participating in hands-on experiences from a research-based curriculum that covers early literacy, handwriting, math, science, social studies, and Bible.
Our Junior Kindergarten is uniquely tailored to meet the needs of children who are already five, but not quite ready for traditional Kindergarten. It serves as a bridge for children who, in essence, need the gift of time. This time is necessary to absorb and express ideas, learn about friendships, assert independence, and examine the world around them. This extra year of enrichment is truly a blessing. Our Junior Kindergarten learning program consists of Guided Reading and Daily 5 literacy programs, handwriting, math, science, social studies, and Bible.
All children in the Lower School Pre-K – Junior Kindergarten grades participate in a variety of specials that include PE, music, Spanish, library, technology, and chapel. In addition, they visit our LCA Science lab for enrichment.
