Students enrolled in LCA are given diagnostic tests to determine skill and concept mastery. Enrolled families are assigned an experienced academic advisor who evaluates the diagnostic tests and prescribes curriculum based on the student’s individual needs. Weak areas (gaps) are strengthened first; then the student continues, progressing at his achievement level.
Academic advisors prepare a projected course of study for high school students, outlining all courses needed for graduation. Four courses of study are offered: Honors, College Preparatory, General, and Vocational.
Academic records are maintained based on tests and grades submitted by the parent. Progress Reports (Report Cards) are prepared and sent to the parent at the end of each semester.
