CELEBRATING OUR 11th YEAR IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA
– A tuition-free public K-12 charter school and online academy open to all North Carolina students
Our mission is to inspire in each and every child an appreciation for life-long learning in an inclusive and family-oriented educational setting that values high academic achievement and genuine character development.
Lake Lure Classical Academy incorporates an engaging Core Knowledge Curriculum that adheres to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study in language arts, history, geography, mathematics, science, and fine arts. The high school program offers a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum leading to a high school diploma.
Students may also participate in the College and Career Promise and take classes through our partnership with Isothermal Community College (ICC). In addition to a high school diploma, students may earn an Associate of Arts or Science degree. There are also opportunities for students to earn occupational certificates in courses such as computer science, machining, and welding.
Compared to other schools in our region, LLCA offers students and families a unique learning experience with ample opportunities for parent-teacher feedback. With personalized education plans, a robust distance learning program, extensive extracurricular activities, a multi-sport athletics program, hands-on learning, and character education, we are proud to be a school of choice for families of all backgrounds. We place a specific focus on educationally disadvantaged and academically and intellectually gifted (AIG) students in this region.
At LLCA, we understand that teachers are the key to the classroom and how critical the right teachers are to your child’s development. Our teachers stay current on the latest teaching tools, technologies, and methods in order to provide students the best education possible. Considering the unique way in which students learn and develop, we understand the importance of employing only the most qualified and compassionate North Carolina licensed teachers.
ENROLLING IN LAKE LURE CLASSICAL ACADEMY:
As a public charter school, we conduct an annual admissions lottery for any open seats in each grade level. In a lottery system, parents submit an application to the school by a set deadline, after which all applications that have been received are placed into a lottery pool. On the date of the lottery, student names are drawn from the pool, and those students are offered open seats.
Once enrolled, the student may attend through the 12th grade without re-applying as long as North Carolina residency is maintained.
LLCA does not limit admission to students on the basis of intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, disability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion, or ancestry.
