ABOUT US

LMCA began in 1989 with 24 students and 4 staff members. We are the first and oldest kindergarten through 12th grade private school in Henderson. The founding administrator, Mrs. Sue Blakeley, continues to lead the Lake Mead Christian Ministries team along with many long-term members of administration. The entire LMCM family contributes on a daily basis to the accomplishment of our mission and core values. 

 

MISSION STATEMENT

Lake Mead Christian Ministries exist to make disciples of Jesus Christ through education and community.

 

VISION

Our vision is to glorify God as we join Him in developing Christ-centered individuals with godly character.

 

CORE VALUES

  • Love

  • Security

  • Quality

  • Accessibility

 

ENROLLMENT

Lake Mead Christian Academy provides education and child care for infants through 12th grade. Our 2016/2017 enrollment was just over 750 students.

Each year a high percentage (ranging 88-98%) of LMCA's graduating seniors go on to enter colleges. A strong number qualify for scholarship opportunities. This is impressive when you consider that LMCA does not pretest students to qualify for admission. Our student base represents students of many ability levels. LMCA admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin.

 

ORGANIZATIONAL AFFILIATIONS

Lake Mead Christian Academy is a private Christian school overseen by a Board of Directors. We are recognized as a private exempt school by the Nevada Department of Education assuring that each grade level completed or credit earned is fully transferable. LMCA is fully accredited at the secondary level by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We have member of ACSI since 1991. LMCA is a member of the Nevada Interscholastic Athletic Association (NIAA) Division AA for high school sports and members in other leagues for elementary and junior high sports. We are members of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce and actively participate in community events. We are registered as a Nevada Corporation. 

 

CAMPUS

In 1995, LMCA was the grateful recipient of 5.6 acres of land by the LandWell Company. Having fully developed that campus, Landwell donated an additional 14 acres in 2015.   The North and South Campuses have three permanent buildings which include over 109,000 square feet of buildings.  We have over 63 classrooms and 18 offices, along with a commercial cafeteria, full service coffee shop, gymnasium, 2 multi-purpose rooms, a football field and maintenance building. The North Campus is our Middle and High School at 655 E. Lake Mead Pkwy. and our South Campus, at 540 E. Lake Mead Pkwy., is home to our Preschool (infants-k-4) and Elementary School. 

 

SPIRITUAL FORMATION

LMCA is a non-denominational school with over 50 different area churches represented among our families and staff. Biblical principles are the foundation for all subjects taught at LMCA. All students attend daily Bible classes and weekly chapel services. We use the English Standard Version Bible for our Bible classes. 

 

TESTIMONIES FROM OUR PARENTS

"Dear Lake Mead Team
 
As our time at LMCA draws to an end, I would like to sincerely thank you for providing a safe, nurturing and positive experience for Paige (fifth grade) and Angus (third grade).
Paige and Angus have rated each day a 10 out of 10. When asked why school is so good here compared to home (Australia)… unanimously they answered “everyone is so nice at LMCA”.
As parents, we too have encountered only positive people: the office, the cafeteria, the principal and teachers all have been courteous and helpful.
Mr Roberts and Ms Morris have truly been a blessing. Paige and Angus have been welcomed and included into their respective class family with warmth and generosity. Whilst being challenged and exposed to a variety of academic, cultural and religious information.
The experience at LMCA has been enriching to our entire family, and we are forever grateful.
Congratulations on a fantastic school. We wish you all the very best for the expansion, and  building the second campus. LMCA has certainly “built a legacy” within our hearts."
 
Sincerely
Jo and Graeme Wilkie
(Byron Bay, Australia)
