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.
We enjoy featuring alumni and sharing how their stories continue after graduation. This is a special feature because this alumnus has blessed us with four years of outstanding service at LCA after his graduation from LCA! Logan Teffertiller began attending Loganville Christian Academy as a sophomore and graduated in 2015.
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.”
We always enjoy hearing from our alumni! Ansley Tienken, a 2015 alumna of LCA, will graduate from UGA in May magna cum laude with a degree in social work. She had an amazing opportunity to study abroad in Grenada this semester. Here’s what Ashley shared with us about the experience and the major she felt led to pursue.
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.
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.
Considering it was the first competition that LCA’s TSA Team had ever participated in, the results were beyond expectations when they placed 3rd in the Engineering Design division, qualifying for Nationals in Washington, D.C. in late June.
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.
LCA third graders marked the first day of spring with a day in Monroe.
LCA is pleased to participate in the annual Student Art Show of Walton County. This year the Monroe Walton Center for the Arts is hosting three separate art shows. The dividing of the shows makes it possible to showcase more students’ artwork from schools around Walton County.
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.

Almost everyone in the LCA family has been touched in some way by Martha Caulk, the Lodge receptionist . . . and the basketball gatekeeper. Below are just a few staff testimonials that circled recently, which are representative of what every staff member could say about her. At LCA we believe that God is writing every story and that everyone’s story is significant.

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!
Our curriculum is written based on standards that meet or exceed the state recommendations. Resources are chosen with that in mind. For the hybrid school, we used the same standards we have for the brick and mortar school. Some of the resources are the same where others are different. For Hybrid, we will be utilizing Saxon Math, Wilson Phonics, Prima Latina for Latin, and a few other reputable resources.
Congratulations to all of the boys varsity players as they continue to the state championship bracket. We are so proud of you! And at LCA, sports are about more than winning and losing. The Gwinnett Citizen posted an article in December 2018 entitled "Coaching Basketball to Instill Life-Long Lessons," featuring Coach Mark Davis.
