School Policies

Community Covenants

LCA’s community covenants intend to support relationships and lead each member of the community to reflect on the reasonable needs and expectations of all others.

Student Covenant

I acknowledge that my success as a student is largely due to my own choices, and that my choices affect all other members of my classes at the Academy. I pledge that:

  • I will abide by the guidelines in the community handbook;

  • I will prepare for each class by doing my homework to the best of my ability and with integrity and manage my schedule to reflect the importance of schoolwork;

  • I will contribute to the quality of each class through productive discussion;

  • I will honor the importance of rest to my concentration and memory by getting abundant sleep;

  • I will organize and care for my books and papers as my learning tools;

  • I will treat the campus and its furnishings gently and help to keep the campus clean;

  • and I will treat other students and teachers as I would wish to be treated, so as to promote an atmosphere of courtesy and generosity.

Teacher Covenant

Endorsing the mission of this Academy, I pledge that I will 

  • strive to be an exemplary learner;

  • strive to master the art and science of teaching;

  • honor class time by being consistently well prepared and focused;

  • respect each student’s individuality and strive to inspire all students to their greatest efforts;

  • communicate with parents to help them support their children;

  • seek to harmonize parents’ insights with the Academy’s objectives and teaching principles;

  • and I will conduct my own life, publicly and privately, with intellectual and moral integrity.

Parent Covenant

Endorsing the mission of this Academy, I pledge that I will:

  • help my child to understand the Academy’s policies as they relate to student responsibilities as well as the principles of consideration and respect that guide them; 

  • provide timely feedback to my child’s teachers about any concerns;

  • observe the attendance and tardy policy, acknowledging its importance to my child’s academic success and the classroom experience of his classmates;
