Life Christian Academy: Now Enrolling Kindergarten to Third Grade

Life Christian Academy, located in south Reno, invites families to consider their school for the upcoming 2024-2025 academic year and for years to come! As a mom who cherishes the value of quality education, I’m excited to share everything you need to know about Life Christian Academy and what it offers to young learners.

Life Christian Academy

Life Christian Academy (LCA) prides itself on having three foundational pillars: Christ-Centered, Academic Excellence, and Community Mindedness.

Christ-Centered Education

At LCA, they prioritize nurturing a relationship with God in their students. The curriculum is intricately woven with Biblical teachings, fostering a deep understanding of faith across all subjects. By guiding children to develop a personal bond with Jesus, they aim to instill values that resonate throughout their lives.

Academic Excellence

They are dedicated to cultivating a thirst for knowledge within each student, encouraging them to embrace learning as a lifelong journey. Through programs like STEAM, language arts, and diverse enrichment activities, they empower students to excel academically and think critically.

Community Minded Approach

Through both curriculum and example, they emphasize the importance of integrity, kindness, and service. By fostering strong relationships among students and staff, we nurture a sense of belonging and responsibility within our community.

My Tour of Life Christian Academy

As a local mom, I had the pleasure of touring Life Christian Academy, meet with staff and see some class time instruction. I loved learning about the values and opportunities that Life Christian Academy offers.

As I observed the class in action, it was evident that the children were not only actively involved but also engaged in their activities. From art stations, to 1 on 1 reading time, a piano nestled near their circle time rug, every corner spoke of a vibrant learning environment. I loved seeing Bible verses displayed at eye level, fostering both literacy and spiritual growth in the young learners!

I appreciate the attention to safety at KidsLife. The building features a single point of entry and utilizes a buzz-in system to ensure security.

I could easily tell that it is more than just a school; it’s a christ-like community dedicated to shaping future leaders grounded in faith, excellence, and compassion.

It’s going to be a highly sought-after private education institution. If you have kids in grades K-3 for next year and you’re seeking a private Christian school experience for your family, I highly recommend applying to Life Christian Academy.
