Mission and Values

The mission of Lafayette Christian Academy is to glorify God by providing a quality, Christ-centered education which challenges students and teachers to maximize their potential so that graduates are prepared to further their education while becoming productive Christian citizens. 

Lafayette Christian Academy exists because of the belief that Christian parents should have the opportunity to provide their child “academic excellence from a Christian perspective.” The total program is a balanced curriculum in the intellectual, social, physical, and spiritual areas based upon the Word of God. It is our ultimate objective to reach Acadiana for Christ.

Our mission is carried out by our uncompromising dedication to Christ's teachings. Of first importance, LCA is a campus that values the Lord. We trust in His teachings, we surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and we believe in the power of the living Holy Spirit. Accordingly, we take seriously Christ's teaching of the Greatest Command- to love the Lord with all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength (Mark 12:30)
