Why LCA

Students at LCA learn, in a very literal way, how to participate productively in the "Great Conversation" that began in Athens more than 2,000 years ago and continues today.

Louisville Classical Academy stands in a long tradition of education that reflects the spirit of inquiry of ancient Greece. Students at LCA learn, in a very literal way, how to participate productively in the "Great Conversation" that began in Athens more than 2,000 years ago and continues today. In the modern world, essential areas of study in the classical liberal arts and sciences include Latin, advanced science and mathematics, enduring literature, history, fine arts, music, and geography, as well as culturally significant mythology and philosophy. These tools develop superior habits of mind that also accelerate learning in the sciences, history, and art. Within this intellectual home, LCA students in kindergarten through twelfth grade learn to approach learning and life with reason, mindfulness, and purpose.
