LCS utilizes a variety of in-school support systems to assist students in the learning process. These services include the EQUIP program, School Counseling and Spiritual Life Departments. Students who need further help after traditional classroom interventions have been utilized can enroll into the LCS EQUIP program. LCS can accommodate but will not modify our curriculum or standards. For additional questions contact your school’s principal.
EQUIP works with a team to provide the best learning plan for the individual student. The desire of the school is to partner with the home to provide a place for encouragement in every individual. Lakeway wants to equip students to take responsibility for their learning. All students that have a diagnosed Learning Disability are encouraged to participate in the EQUIP program. Collaborative meetings between the parents, teachers, tutors, and EQUIP Director will be held every nine weeks to assure success of the student. We have learning centers on each campus and people who are well-trained in their areas and are deeply committed to seeing each student grow into his or her God-given potential. This will require work and commitment from the school and home. To these ends we desire to help students take academic steps forward and be encouraged in the process!
School Counseling Department
The mission of the School Counseling Department at Lakeway Christian Academy is to provide a Biblically-based, comprehensive program to assist all students and their families in academic, spiritual, emotional/social, and career development. Using the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) guidelines as a framework, school counselors will partner with educators, families, and the community to assist students in maximizing their potential as productive citizens who glorify God in all they do.
As an extension of the School Counseling office, LCA offers Advisory for students in 6th-12th grade to assist in their growth and development by constructing meaningful educational plans in congruence with their life-calling. Each student is assigned a faculty member who will serve as a mentor for the duration of the student’s middle and high school years. Faculty serve as mentors to provide support by guiding and monitoring each student’s academic and social progress. The advisor role is integral to each student’s success, as it gives an additional platform for faculty to partner with families by gaining insight and communicating each student’s concerns, interests, and abilities. Through these groups, Lakeway Christian Academy faculty seek to formulate lasting authentic relationships that lead to student success and foster a strong sense of community. Each advisory group is divided by grade level and consists of 7-10 students per group that meets for 40 minutes once a week.
Career and Technical Education (CTE)
Career Technical Education provides students of all ages with the academic and technical skills, knowledge and training necessary to succeed in future careers and to become lifelong learners. CTE courses are based on teaching students applicable, real-world skills, and showing how those skills are put to use in different careers through experiential learning.
