At LCA, we offer a broad and exceptionally rich curriculum, beginning with our dynamic early childhood program through 8th grade. We meet and exceed all curricular requirements as determined by the Department of Education of the State of Ohio & the Office of Catholic Education in the Cleveland Catholic Diocese.
In a recent accreditation visit by Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association, the leader of the external accreditation team said,
“Based on my review of your test scores, my observation of your classes, and my interviews with your teachers, I truly believe that Lakewood Catholic Academy ranks as one of the best schools in the State of Ohio.”
Our Academic Philosophy
We believe that in order to teach most effectively, who we teach is just as important as what we teach. Our faculty members will be trained to differentiate their classroom instruction in order to address the needs of all learners. This will be accomplished through continual assessment of the students’ readiness, interests, learning profiles, and effect. Using the results of these assessments, the teachers will modify the curriculum content, process, and product, as well as the classroom-learning environment so that each student reaches his or her maximum potential as a learner.
LCA is committed to preparing students to succeed in high school and beyond. Our graduates say that their transition to high school was simple because of the preparation they received at LCA.
