The inerrant, infallible Word of God is the benchmark that measures all that a child learns. All truth is God’s truth. Academy teachers integrate the principles of Scripture into every subject. Standardized test scores place Liberty students above the national average. Academy students have regularly placed in the highest percentile academically since 2001. The Bob Jones University Press curriculum from Bob Jones University is used in elementary grades 1-6.
Kindergarteners enjoy an exciting traditional learning environment using the Bob Jones curriculum. Teachers concentrate on reading, phonics, writing, and arithmetic; students will learn how to read before they graduate from kindergarten.
Phonics mastery is the cornerstone of the reading program at this level. Strong foundations are carefully laid in mathematics, grammar, spelling, science, penmanship, history, and geography in the elementary grades. We also offer computer, Spanish, and physical education classes for grades 1-6. Each year students in grades 1-11 are tested using the Terra Nova and Stanford Achievement Tests.
At LCA, the safety of your child is of utmost importance. The elementary building is secured throughout the day by Access Control, a passcode system only accessible by LCA faculty/staff. The Tyco mass messaging system is a virtuously instantaneous notification system whereby administrators can notify parents and other members of our school community of emergency situations via cell phone, land line, email. From emergencies such as weather-related closings to buses returning late from field trips, this system provides accurate, "real-time" information when it's needed most.
Before and After School Care
We provide quality childcare services for students in pre-school through high school. Hours are from 7:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. For more information regarding this program please reference the LCA handbook for specifics.
Liberty Christian Academy is located in a 25,000 sq. foot facility which includes a full size gym, cafeteria, computer lab with 24 state of the art computers, 10 IMac computer lab in the high school, library, and comfortable classrooms. Our gymnasium accommodates over 300 for Knight athletic events. The classrooms are spacious – specifically designed for their purpose. Great care is taken daily to ensure that our facilities are always clean and well maintained.
High School Academics
We are committed to excellence in all that we do at LCA. In fact, the ABC's at Liberty stand for Academically excellent, Bible-based, Character-focused education. Our teachers are highly dedicated and well qualified Christians who love the Lord, children, and teaching. We use a mixture of ABeka, BJU Press, and Purposeful Design (ACSI) curriculum to help students master the core subjects and better equip them for undergraduate studies. Liberty students consistently place above the national average on standardized tests each year, many placing in the highest tiers nationally; however, the greatest asset for your child at Liberty is not just academics, but also the strong Christ-centered atmosphere. Our sincere desire is to assist parents in helping their children reach their God-given potential--spiritually, academically, and socially.

The senior high offers a college preparatory education in a Christian environment while offering the students a number of electives including music, drama, culinary arts, keyboarding, leadership, etc. Students are encouraged to continue their sound Christian education at good Christian colleges and universities. All high school students participate in community groups where they grow in God's Word and spend 20-30 hours each year serving in local outreach ministries in Cumberland County.

Headmaster online allows parents to track their child's progress on a daily basis. Parents can log in to view homework, behavior memos, billing statements, etc. Each parent is issued a username and password upon their child's acceptance to the academy. In August 2014, Headmaster launched a new smartphone app where parents can track progress, pay their bill, etc. from the convenience of their mobile phone.
