GRAD TO GRAD

Grad to Grad is one of the intentional ways LCA works to unite our Upper School and Lower School students. Our desire and purpose is that the senior student will be a Godly spiritual and social influence that leads their kindergartener. The idea was proposed by two former students, Kevin Allen and Rylee Atwell and launched in Fall 2016. As seniors, they proposed this program to build upon relationships they had already established with staff member kids.  We are grateful for the initiative that Kevin & Rylee took to create this program at LCA.
