Lakeside Charter Academy emphasizes a rigorous curriculum aligned with our pillar of scholarship. The school has adopted the Core Knowledge Curriculum in the core subjects of Science, Social Studies, Language Arts , Music and the Arts. The program provides a cohesive, comprehensive, content-rich curriculum that is implemented throughout the grade levels of K-8. The academics will integrate Shurley English and cursive handwriting within CKLA.
LCA will use the Singapore Math–Math in Focus, a mathematical problem solving program that teaches skills and concepts that allows students to develop beliefs, interests, and confidence. It is a program that develops processes of reasoning, communication, and application while also allowing the student to develop self-regulation of learning.
LCA students will develop leadership skills through a curriculum designed to develop confident and capable students. Leadership will include the concepts that everything is possible, we are connected, passion first, accountability, and gratitude.
