Meeting the challenges of educating students who are more than ready for college – academically and spiritually – requires more than tuition dollars can provide.
For over 40 years, families have given sacrificially to build a Christian school equipped to instruct children in Christian principles and service. Gifts of over $32 million have provided for Little Rock Christian Academy’s growth to a rigorous K-12 college-preparatory school on a 53-acre campus. LRCA currently serves over 1450 students with a solid Biblical Worldview curriculum, blue-ribbon academics, and championship athletics and arts.
As an independent school, Little Rock Christian Academy depends upon both tuition revenue and charitable giving to accomplish its mission. Tuition compensates faculty, funds programs, and maintains the campus for your child’s Christian education. Charitable giving provides for growth. New buildings and athletic facilities, new arts programs and equipment, faculty development, and advanced curriculum and technology would not happen without gifts from parents, grandparents, alumni and friends.
While some things have certainly changed over 40 years, we continue to rely on our families and friends in various ways:
Partnership – It is a privilege to partner with parents and churches in our community to raise up Warriors. Our families play an active role, not only in the education of their own children, but also by supporting and volunteering in classrooms and co-curriculars, and helping with athletics, arts and special events. Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) and Warrior Club also provide a variety of opportunities for family involvement.
Financial Support – Every dollar from every family is stewarded with the utmost care to support the mission with a clear eye on the future. Generous giving ensures that our teachers and students have the programs and facilities they need to excel. LRCA asks that every family give first to the Annual Fund or the Scholarship Fund (tuition assistance for qualified families) so that the school can meet the strategic priorities of each school year. In addition to that, many families choose to give toward designated projects which allow us to excel still more.
The Development Office serves Warrior families by providing opportunities for connection and partnership. It is the responsibility of the Development Office to coordinate the charitable involvement of all members of our school family, including leadership, faculty, staff, current families and alumni, in accordance with the strategic and missional priorities set forth by the Board. The Development Office stewards donations through adherence to financial management and reporting standards.
