Lake Christian Academy, LCA, (formerly Lake West Christian Academy) recently announced that they partnered with Liberty University Online Academy to implement a new educational program for high school and select middle school aged students that began the second semester of the 2014-2015 school year. Using Liberty University Online Academy curriculum to replace text books, LCA offers its students an on-campus program in which they will take some online courses during regular school hours in a dedicated blended learning space.
