To prepare our graduates both spiritually and academically to become leaders who influence the world for Christ.

Care Values

At the center of Lakeway Christian Schools (LCS) is Jesus. We place our trust, hope, and faith in Him and are dedicated to pursuing excellence in teaching, leading, and growing a generation of Christ followers in truth. The following CARE values are the heartbeat of LCS. LCS, including Cornerstone Christian Academy, Lakeway Christian Academy, Boones Creek Christian Academy, and Tri-Cities Christian Academy, hold to the following values:

We will be Christ-centered in all that we are and in all that we do. We seek to create Christian environments where students can be introduced to the supremacy of Christ in all
matters. We will seek to establish all aspects of life and learning on the Word of God, leading to a firm commitment to Christ and His Kingdom. Our faculty and staff will seek to integrate Christian faith in all learning and doing, based on the supposition that all truth is God's truth with no contradiction between Holy Scripture and that which is revealed through creation.
& Affordable
Being Christ-centered, we follow Jesus's example of making Himself available to all that would come to Him. He did not set Himself aside for the most privileged or the most affluent, but rather was welcoming to all that wanted to hear. Therefore our goal is to provide an opportunity for Christian education to as many students and families as possible.
Our desire is for each student to know Christ personally by faith. Additionally hearing His command to love one another. we seek to create a culture focused on godly relationships where both our faculty and students visibly demonstrate their love and value for one another. Finally, we will commit to being a witness of Christ's love to the world in all of our words and actions.
We believe that we are called to equip and develop students to possess a biblical worldview and a heart for Christ that they may grow in wisdom, stature, and in favor with God and man. Therefore, we believe that a commitment to excellence must motivate all that we do. This comes from a desire to do all things for God's glory. Thus, we dedicate ourselves to excellence in every area of our school system. It is our desire that each student develop a lifelong love of learning, impacting our world for the cause of Christ.
The future is very bright for all four Lakeway Christian Schools, but in order to truly appreciate all that God is doing, we need to take a look at how it all began...

Tri-Cities Christian Academy was founded in 1973 and is the most recent addition to Lakeway Christian Schools. Cornerstone Christian Academy was established in 2006. Lakeway Christian Academy was established in 2018.
June 23, 2017
Cornerstone Academy cut the ribbon during a ceremony held by the Morristown Area Chamber of Commerce in celebration of the completion of the school’s $11 million expansion.

The addition completed in 2017, included 16 new classrooms, a music and art suite, a library, a cafeteria and gymnasium with a pass-through staging area for hosting performances and speakers, office spaces, an updated foyer and secure entrance and a meeting room designed to host chapel gatherings.
Tri-Cities History
Tri-Cities Christian Academy was founded in 1973 as a non-profit educational institution chartered by the state of Tennessee and operated by a Board of Directors.

TCA is a nondenominational school that exists for the purpose of educating preschool through senior high students and making this education genuinely a Christian education.

The first school building occupied by TCA (formerly named Tri-Cities Christian Schools, TCCS) was located at 1200 East Center St. in Kingsport, TN. Four classrooms rented from the city of Kingsport served as both office and classrooms for grades 9, 10, 11 in the fall of 1973 with twenty-seven students in attendance on opening day.

In 2009, TCA consolidated its elementary schools to the main campus located in Blountville, TN. The Blountville campus now hosts the K4 Junior Eaglet Program in addition to Kindergarten-12 grade students.

In 2014, TCA earned accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). This recognition further reinforced the robust programs delivered by the school.

In 2022, Boones Creek Christian Academy (BCCA) was founded. Now our Tri-Cities-area schools serve grades Pre-K - 2 at BCCA and 3-12 at TCA.

Statement of Faith

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son, our Lord.  Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and was born of a virgin, Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. On the third day He rose again from the dead.  He ascended into Heaven, where He sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.  From Heaven He shall come to earth again to judge the living and the dead.  We believe in the Holy Spirit, one holy Christian church, the communion of all true saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the gift of everlasting life.
