High School

 

The high school offers college preparatory curricula and innovative teaching philosophies such as the Harkness method where critical thinking, reasoning and effective expression through writing and speaking are emphasized.  Our highly qualified, committed faculty maximizes opportunities to help students dig deeply and view what they are learning from God’s perspective.

LRCA offers over 50 electives in the areas of World Languages, Business, Technology, Engineering, Theatre, Choir, Band, Orchestra, Art, Physical Education, and Athletics.  There is also a bountiful selection of Advanced Placement and Concurrent College courses.  Other unique offerings include STEM (Project Lead the Way), the Farm to Fork program, more than 30 clubs, and countless service opportunities.  Students also enjoy the annual J-Term program where trips, classes, and internships not usually offered are available to them.  Senior Capstone is another program distinctive to LRCA.  Rising juniors submit proposals to engage in a high-level, independent study/research program resembling college-level thesis work.  

“We believe in our students as individuals...angular kids making up a well-rounded student body of thinkers.  Their voices, minds, hearts, and souls are of great value.  We’re not just preparing them for college.  We’re preparing them for life.” -Dr. Justin Smith, Head of Upper School
