Who Are We?

Founded in 1991, Lighthouse Christian Academy serves families in the Bloomington and surrounding communities. LCA currently resides on 10 acres of beautiful land, one mile east of Highway 37 on That Road. Our students in kindergarten through grade 12 have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of educational experiences; academic, arts and athletic related. Every area of influence experienced by the student is guided by a biblical approach. The Lord has blessed LCA with a faculty and staff that are committed to Christian education. LCA is a Christian school that endeavors to prepare each student to become Christ-like, and to impact culture on His terms. Please call the school office for more information or visit our website.
