A word from our Lead Pastor


It is my pleasure to serve as Lancaster Christian Academy's Lead Pastor. I could not be more excited about the opportunities that await our children at LCA. Serving this incredible ministry for the past decade, I believe that Lancaster Christian Academy is uniquely poised to be a national leader in private Christian education. At the core of our educational leadership role is our mission:

Lancaster Christian Academy's mission is to make Jesus famous in the lives of our students by building intentional, Christ-centered relationships and fostering a safe environment where biblical standards of living are celebrated and meaningful learning takes place. 

While we certainly supersede and rank above the state educationally, our school blends the need for academic, social, emotional, mental, and spiritual development. Our program intentionally seeks out opportunities for students to grow holistically, and we find greater success in the realm of academics when students are thriving in all aspects of their development. 

Our bible classes and chapels center around relevant, age-appropriate topics in a setting that is fun and relatable to both children and teens respectively. We are consistently looking for windows of opportunity and teachable moments in hopes to point the students to Jesus!

We are a college preparatory school. This means that the goal of preparing our students to be successful in college and in life is central to our academic program. As such, we hold our students and teachers accountable to an unwavering high standard of excellence. Our teachers work hard to guarantee success providing a loving and nurturing environment in which our students receive the support they need to be successful.

Not only are we known for academic excellence (especially with our high ACT scores), but we are also known for our national championship-winning sports teams. Our athletic department offers a variety of opportunities to children as young as kindergarten, and we have been very successful in sending student-athletes to Christian colleges on athletic scholarships.

Our Arts Department never disappoints in bringing stellar productions and opportunities for students to shine in art, drama, and music. If your child plays an instrument, we would love to have them be a part of our chapel band.

Investigating the unique programs and exceptional opportunities offered within the realm of private Christian education can be very exciting. I hope to be able to meet and speak with you about Lancaster Christian Academy! Our friendly staff is here to serve you, and we hope that you will join our eclectic school community. It is our desire that you will find our environment to be joyful, academically challenging, and ultimately a fun place where kids of all ages grow in the Lord!

Great things are happening here!

Under His Grace,

Kevin E. O'dea
