ADMISSIONS CRITERIA

Acceptance to Loganville Christian Academy is granted based on academic, spiritual and social criteria being met.

ACADEMIC

Loganville Christian Academy is a college preparatory school. As such, students must meet the following criteria:

PreK through First Grade: Students applying for PreK through First Grade will be asked to come to LCA to be screened with a standardized evaluation instrument.  This instrument assesses language and literacy development, number concepts, motor skills, and social development. Students must score at or above the developmental level.

Parents will be notified of the screening results and whether the student is eligible for the next step in the admissions process.

Grades 2 through 5:  Students applying for grades 2 through 5 must submit the results of a nationally-normed standard test, taken within the last 12 months. Students must score above average or at grade level on the nationally-normed standardized test or at the “exceeds” level of the CRCT. In addition, in most cases LCA will also conduct testing in math and language arts to insure that the student is prepared to succeed in our curriculum. Students must all submit grade reports to show evidence of an academic history in which he/she has recorded above average grades consistently. A testing date will be scheduled after the application is complete and has been preliminarily reviewed by the academic committee.

Grades 6-12: For students entering grades 6-12, we require the results of a nationally normed standard test, taken within the last 12 months. We are seeking students who score a minimum of the 50th percentile in all categories. In addition, if the student has taken the CRCT, they must score at the “meets” or “exceeds” level in all areas. In some cases, we may also conduct our own testing to determine admissibility or placement.

There is a $50 fee due at the time of testing, payable by check or cash.

Parents will be notified if the student is eligible for the next step in the admissions process.

SPIRITUAL

LCA is a discipleship-style school. As such, there is a requirement for at least one parent in every home to give evidence of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, be actively involved in a local church fellowship and agree with the tenants of the LCA Statement of Faith.  As part of the application process, we will request a letter of recommendation from your pastor, a church staff member or church leader. This recommendation is a required element of your application. Students’ salvation is not required for acceptance, but high school students should have a similar value and belief system.

SOCIAL

Students must show a pattern of school attendance and behavior, both in and out of school that is consistent with the school’s overall mission and objectives. Upper School students will be asked to provide their social media accounts and asked to “friend” or “follow” the LCA Admissions account.

LCA does not accept students who have been suspended or expelled from other schools.
