At Lake City Academy, our purpose is to educate students, prepare them for success in this world and encourage them in a relationship with Jesus Christ. We welcome all students and families who share in this passion and are excited to learn in a Christ-centered environment.
Part of our mission is also to be accessible to everyone. Therefore, we offer the opportunity to apply for financial assistance to anyone unable to afford tuition. We review all applicants with the help of an impartial computer algorithm (TADS) that determines need based on an analysis of financial records. Every effort is made to make sure every family who is committed to have their child in our school is able to attend. All financial aid applications must be completed by March 22, 2019.
Our enrollment committee meets regularly to review applications, and we encourage all who feel that they qualify to apply. If this is you, please visit our financial site here to fill out an application.
