LCA is a great school! I see a very positive environment and the people who work there are very friendly!

Congrats Whitney Freeby on getting her scholarship to Lee University and to Lacy Dyer on her scholarship for Volleyball! Keep up the good work! There have been 7 college football coaches who have come to meet with one of the students at LCA as well!

LCA has the best 1st grade teacher ever! She has incredible communication with her parents and has a website ranked one of the highest in the nation! We are sooo far ahead in our workbooks! I cannot wait to see what the rest of the year holds! We love this school! Praise the Lord!!

The Ugly truth of this school is there is a lot of drug use and sexual promiscuity in the upper grades... the ugly truth of this school is many of the students that graduate are not prepared for college or life... the ugly truth of this school is they have been banned to compete in their own conference tournament in basketball because of the rude behavior of students and other possible wrong doings... the ugly truth of this school is many families have been lied to and hurt through the school. Sometimes the truth is not pretty and easy. In this case it is very ugly.

Dear Ugly Truth,
I personally met with some teachers to inquire of these accusations. I have also met with many LCA graduates who are doing extremely well in colleges and universities. I met with students who are preparing for mission trips. I was informed of the early morning Bible Study which is student led. I know of the faculty and teachers who work hard to educate students well. What is the purpose in destroying the reputation of this school? Why would you want to hurt a ministry that is equipping students to be passionate servants of Jesus Christ?

Dear Christian Parent:
I have come to the conclusion, some people for whatever reason will just close their eyes to a problem and hope it goes away. EVERYTHING I have posted is true. I am not trying to bring down their ministry, they are doing a fine job of that themselves. You should be more concerned with the character of the school instead of its' reputation. The plain, simple, ugly truth is there is not much character in the leadership of this school.
I am not against LCA, just would like to see it change.

I would rate Lancaster as less than one star if I could. My daughter has attended LCA for the last four years...she will be graduating this May. Our primary reason for enrolling her when she started high school was because of the school she was zoned for...we had several concerns about her attending there. Over the years, there has been a consistent, disappointing trend of disorganization, chaos, lack of communication, inconsistency (with teachers, administration, policies, grading, etc.), which has made our time there difficult...however, it's our only alternative here in this area if we want to send our high schooler to a Christian school. My daughter has done well academically, but there's no question that she hasn't been challenged, she hasn't been held accountable for assignment deadlines, makeup work, etc. My daughter has been fortunate to be in the good graces of most of her teachers and administration, but students who are not,(for whatever reason), are held to different standards than others. The principal, Kevin O'dea is inconsistent with policies and relationships with the students in terms of how differently they are treated depending on how he feels about them. It's not uncommon for him to load up a group of kids and take them to lunch while leaving everyone else behind. It's widely known that he texts with students outside of school, both male and female...that may or may not be in inappropriate, but it can create a negative perception. There is no question in our minds,(including my daughter's), that she will be behind significantly when she begins was a trade-off that we knew we were making by opting out of a public school where we literally feared for her safety.

im attending this school currently and honestly the schools fairly unorganized, but when you have one person practically running the whole school k-12. with all due respect to the lancasters, they dont really have their stuff together. i admit, many changes need to be made, but its useless to attack a whole school like that when all they are trying to do is grow and expand. the only problem with that is they are moving faster than they can control. lca has a great staff once you get to know them. oh, and LAMP is fun and we attempt to save people each year. come out and support may 9th and 10th @ 7:30. lol, im jkin but serious though... <3

Most of my kids friends who graduated from LCA are doing really well in colleges and universities. I like the communication system. I can go on line and see grades any time of the day. Also, weekly online newsletters keep me informed. I am not sure why the comments about disorganization continue. Our experience has been good. This year we had some games cancelled, but that was due to weather. I agree they are growing. My child loves Mr. ODea and everyone I know loves him as well.

This is a lie, most are not doing well in college and have struggled. You are absolutely clueless.

I just heard about these postings and seriously people have this all wrong We just had a senior night at Mr. O's house and it was great. Last week Martin got saved when Mr. O was preaching. I used to think things were crazy with the schedule- but that is because we do a ton of stuff. I agree, LAMP will be great, and I am praying that people get saved. I can't believe that people take the time to write this crap on here! I mean Mr O and the Lancasters care a lot about us. If they make a mistake it's because they are human. But, the school has changed my life and most of my friends lives too. Mr ODea helped get a full ride to college, and I had a blast these five years. Seriously, come to the show and see the awesome stuff God is going to do!

The heart of this school was reflected in the ministry the last two nights. Praise the Lord for the salvations!! Great job Mr. Lancaster!!

Most students like LCA because it is easy. I am glad they are doing certain things in ministry, but in education they are not adequate.

I went to LCA for four years now. I was happy with the school and dissapionted at the same time. I really think i want to be homeschooled. I have gotten close to alot of people at LCA. There are some really gret teachers there. But, there are also some teachers who dont care about the kids and just want to get their paycheck at the end of the month. Also Mrs. Lancaster does not care about the students, she just wants the parents to think she does so they will enroll the next year. I believe that they are in major debt and try to make money off of everything that they do. There are some awesome teachers and students in Lancaster that i dont want to leave if i dont go there next year. But i will NOT miss Mrs. Lancaster.
Lancaster Coaches

I know their baseball/basketball coach is a pompus asshole. He walks around "saying" he's a Christian and wants to "do what's right" but any day of the week you can find him yelling at his rec ball players or talking about them or their parents. It's pathetic. He's not at all what I would want representing my school, especially if I was a "Christian" school. I even seen one of his assistant coaches, the real big fat one, curse and blame certain kids for losing a game. I hated it when we played their team. We always won but these two coaches have no class at all. Countless times you can find them drinking the night away at Wilstan's. This guy is a liar and a fake Christian. He needs serious help and if Lancaster knew what was good for their reputation, I wouldn't let him coach at my school. There is no way on earth I would ever send my kid to that school solely based on him being his coach. I'll keep him at Middle TN Christian - they at least have coaches who are honorable and who surround themselves with honorable people. Seriously people, that fat coach he has helping him on his other team is horrible. I even heard from parents on that team that he abuses his wife and kid. I just couldn't believe this guy was a coach at Lancaster. If this is the kind of leadership they promote at this school, I can completely understand all of the negative comments - and it makes them more believable for sure!!

Wow, I can't believe some of the posts I'm reading. I currently attend Lancaster, and it is by far the best decision I have ever made. I have attended for 2 years, and if you can find me a better English teacher than Mrs. Morgan, a better science teacher than Coach Amos, or even a better math teacher than Mrs. Kloes, you will have made my day. The faculty and administration do anything and everything in their power to help you, and grow as a Christian. I have become much closer to God, and as a school we are growing so much, and striving for excellence. Lancaster is very fun, and just like any other school, the curriculum is what you make of it. If you want to be challenged, there are honors classes, and dual-enrollment. Also, the biblical wisom of the teachers, as well as the desiring students is immaculate... (Oh, and P.S, it's easy to talk trash when you're hidden behind an anonomyous name, and a computer screen. Man up.)

Oh, and "Lancaster Coaches", you're talking about the middle school team. I know, for a complete, 100% fact, that they did not curse any of the players, especially the "big, fat one". Also, for you to get mad at our school for cussing, and then you to call our coaches "pompus assholes" completely contradicts your statement. Also, the "big, fat one" is one of the strongest Christians I have ever met. You should be ashamed for your comments, and should read 1 John and test your Christianity, because your comments were rude/dead-wrong/judgemental. Comments like those are the main reason people are turned off from Christianity. You comments were, quite simply, absurd.

This is a joke of a school and a joke of an athletic program. Peopleknow real and they know fake and choose to be a part of one or another. I absolutely hate reading how a christian should act or if you were at lca you would know what christianity looks like but on the other hand I hate rumors about coaches. Listen people let this junk go. Everyone knows what you get with LCA. If you choose to be a part of it than God Bless you and if you choose to go elsewhere than God Bless you, no need in this junk. I for one will not read anything else on topix about LCA. I know who they are and what they stand for I dont agree with them, but it is a waste of time bickering with other Christians about it. You either want real or fake- You choose.
