FOCUS Program



                               Ginger Ward has been apart of LLCA for 10 years.  Ginger and her husband, Kevin, have 4 children                                 at the academy.  LLCA is pleased to offer a program to meet the needs of higher ability learners                                     through the use of Science,Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education as well as unit                                     studies that expand on the curriculum taught in the regular classroom.  The FOCUS program                                           provides enrichment in grades 1-4 as a pull out for qualifying students meeting once a week and                                     daily meetings in grades 5-8.  The cost for this pull out is $150 per month.

The FOCUS program is challenging and meaningful to our students.  The program supports a learning environment that encourages students to reach their highest potential.  The goal of the program is to allow students to engage their creativity, strengths, and abilities to the greatest extent possible.  We focus on promoting high-level thinking and developing students who are well-rounded, 21st century learners.


Please contact Ginger Ward at if you have any questions.


Criteria for FOCUS:

At LLCA we use a triad (teacher recommendation, Terra Nova scores, and classroom grades) to determine eligibility for FOCUS.  Parents will receive an email or letter by mail inviting students to join the FOCUS program.

Any student who scores below an 80 on their progress report or report card will be placed on probation.  The students will be dismissed from the program if the grade does not increase by the next progress report/report card.
