Faith. Vision. Courage.

Faith. Vision.Courage.These are the virtues at the heart of the Lakewood Catholic Academy story and they remain at the heart of our mission today.We celebrate these virtues as we honor the 10th anniversary of LCA – a school that courageously defied the odds and has grown to become an innovative model in Catholic elementary education.

As a school family we rely on these same virtues as we strategically chart the future direction of LCA.We remain committed to our Catholic faith, the partnership with our supporting parishes and the Sisters of Charity of Saint Augustine. We will continue to develop new ways to form our young boys and girls into young men and woman inspired to serve the Church and the world.

We will continue to be a visionary leader in Catholic education. We will continue to recruit and retain talented teachers. We will develop new strategies to financially assist families who want to be a part of our community. We will continue to grow our enrollment by giving each child the most exceptional beginning to their education – for in the end it is the beginning that counts.

We will continue to act with courage in bold and daring ways to live out our mission. We will give our children the world by becoming Ohio’s first Catholic school to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program. We will also create a vibrant and unique 5th-8th grade middle school experience for our students here on our beautiful lakeshore campus.

Just as there were challenges ten years ago, there will be challenges ahead. Together we will face these challenges with the same faith, vision and courage that helped us achieve our current success.

I invite you to become our partner in this important mission. We need your faith, vision and courage. Your prayerful support and financial assistance to the Fund for LCA will make the difference. Contribute today and be part of an inspiring story of success.

Be a Saint!

New dining service for our school lunch program

We are excited to have a new dining service for our school lunch program this year. We have entered into a partnership with the Salerno Restaurant Group to completely revise and reimagine our dining services. This innovative partnership will position Lakewood Catholic Academy as an educational leader in student dining services.

Our mission is to provide food that nourishes both the body and the mind and fuels productive learning. Research indicates that brain development and growth depend on nutrition and lay the foundation for learning and behavior. A healthy, balanced diet can help your child reach his or her full potential for concentration, memory, focus and mental capacity.

Our new dining service will provide:

  • a variety of freshly-made quality whole foods that are not processed
  • no food dyes
  • no corn syrups
  • no artificial ingredients or unhealthy preservatives

Additionally, due to a generous donor, we were able to purchase a point of sale software program that you will be able to use in conjunction with our dining service to order lunches online and load money into your child’s account and even monitor what your child is purchasing. Furthermore, this system enables you to note your child’s dietary needs and allergies. This system is state-of-the-art and does not require your child to remember codes; rather, it uses biometric technology with a fingerprint scan.
