Statement of Purpose

The purpose of Lakeland Christian Academy is to assist students to achieve their highest potential in academics and godly character. We obey God in assisting parents in the life preparation of their children. Our scriptural imperatives are: 
 
"And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew the way wherein they must walk, and the work they must do. Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens."
Exodus 18:20,21
 
"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6
 
"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: But bring them up in the nurtue and admonition of the Lord." 
Ephesians 6:4
 
"And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart. And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."
Deuteronomy 6:6,7
 
The academy is an extension of the Christian home, training young people in a Christian environment. The school staff members work closely with parents to train the whole child - spirit, soul, and body. Attendance at this school is a privilege and not a right. The goal of this school is not to reform, but to train Christian youth in the highest principles of Christian leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, and good citizenship. 

Mission

The mission of Lakeland Christian Academy is to provide a safe and caring environment from a Biblical worldview for students to obtain an academic education that is Christ centered and academically sound.

 

Christ Centered

  • Jesus is the Son of God. (Romans 1:3-4)
  • Through His incarnation, He came to earth to pay the price for our sinful nature. (Rom. 4:23-25, Mark 10:45)
  • By His example, He showed us how to live a prosperous life in dominion of the earth; and
  • 60 identifiable character traits demonstrated by Christ are entwined in our curriculum serve to clearly guide our students into Christ likeness.

 

Academically Sound

  • The curriculum:
    • Is Individualized
      • Each child learns in different ways at different speeds. Therefore, after diagnostic testing, (a process of ascertaining the student’s actual academic performance level) an Individualized Program Plan is developed that best meets the needs of the child.
    • Is based on the theory of creation, supported by scientific fact and the inspired Word of God. (Gen. 1:1-27)
    • Encompasses the outcomes required by the Alberta Program of Studies to provide our students with a diploma from Alberta Education upon graduation.
