Warriors Make J Term Intentional

J-term 2018 will be remembered as one of the most intentional weeks of the year! Warriors studied in six locations around the world, experienced specific careers through intensive internships, and stretched their limits through unique courses or mission work here in our own city.

Thank you to KARK 4 News for capturing the volunteer work LRCA students participated in at the Arkansas Foodbank. The special segment Faith Matters: J-Term Helping Students, Helping Others can be viewed by clicking on the above image.

J-term is an innovative curricular feature that was added to the Little Rock Christian high school curriculum in 2008. Modeled after the college January term concept, J- term is designed to increase learning opportunities and has become an enormously valuable and popular component of a Little Rock Christian Academy education.
