Exciting Progression to Middle School

Utilizing communication, collaboration, problem solving, and building relationships all while learning content, Loganville Christian Academy’s goal is to challenge students to reach their full potential in every area of their lives. The administration and teachers at LCA are intentional when it comes to learning objectives for the students and how to best accomplish them. Outlined here are several examples of ways that LCA prepares students beyond the traditional textbook methods.

Senior Projects Serve as Capstone

Senior projects are an opportunity for LCA seniors to explore an interest area in order to gain further insight into the area as a potential hobby or career. Students shadow a mentor in the area of interest and learn what it takes to be successful within the chosen field. Mr. Mark Davis oversees the projects and said, “This year students examined many different areas from agriculture, woodworking, various medical fields, advertising, the legal profession, and many, many others. The students presented their findings to a panel that consists of LCA administration and staff.”

Early Childhood Education Program

Throughout the school year, the high school ECE students develop an understanding of the responsibilities of a classroom teacher while observing a teacher in action. This hands-on experience is similar to an internship, allowing students to explore career options prior to declaring their college majors. LCA currently has eleven US students participating in the ECE program, which began in the Fall of 2010.

Authentic Learning in MS Electives

This year at Loganville Christian Academy, we have prioritized authentic learning experiences in our middle school elective courses. In addition to offering new courses in technology, engineering, art, agriculture, and financial literacy, we have had to rethink how we evaluate students when their learning is grounded in hands-on and project-based experiences. This has led us to prioritize specific learning skills that we want our students to practice and master in these courses.

Diligence for Parents in the Digital Age

Parenting is hard. How do you know the right things to do with the new technology that keeps arriving on the market? Do you ever feel like our parents had it so much easier? The truth is there are “new” things for each generation to figure out. . . . As parents with limited time, energy, and money, how in the world can we stay on top these overwhelming and constant changes without losing our sanity? LCA would like to partner with you on this journey, as we explore the risks, trends, and guardrails you can set to responsibly and actively protect your family while leveraging technology for good.

Creativity + Collaboration = Poetry Cafe

Our LCA third graders hosted their annual poetry cafe on Valentine’s Day of this year. The cafe culminates the hard work the students have put in writing poetry since the beginning of the school year. In preparation, the students read and studied different types of poetry styles and elements with Mrs. Cote and Mrs. Echols. They were each able to write and publish more than ten different original poems that they collected in their notebooks.

Alumna Feature: Caroline Briggs, IT at GGC

After changing my major a couple times, I am now doing Information Technology with a concentration in Systems and Security. I chose this major after attending a Women in Technology Boot Camp at GGC. I immediately fell in love with programming and IT! I applied to be a Student Ambassador and went through an interview process and was selected. Applying to be an ambassador is one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made!
