LMCA is a homeschool support learning center dedicated to enhancing your child's educational experience. Although our classically modeled program is academically challenging and has a strong emphasis on literature and writing, there are numerous opportunities for hands-on activities that will utilize creative expression. Students will engage in interactive classroom instruction on Mondays and Wednesdays. Parents remain the primary educators as they ensure that all assignments on the provided lesson plans are completed with accuracy and care during home lesson days.
Each academic year focuses on a different historical time period and scientific area of study. History class encourages students to think beyond the book by allowing them to construct their learning in physical and tangible ways. A unit on the American Civil War, for example, allowed high school-age students to create a puppet show on different battles, and present these shows to the younger students. Science class will teach practical life skills such as fermentation and classification, as well as scientific method and models. Students will grow to love science as concepts are solidified with hands-on lab experiments that never fail to amaze.
Although not exclusively taught, some writing instructors are IEW certified and utilize the IEW model in those courses. Literature selections are based on the historical genre of the year, and include classics along with other relevant novels. An optional honors literature class is offered for high school-age students as well. This class meets several times a year outside of LMCA hours and is taught by a college professor. LMCA strives to challenge students and to make learning enjoyable, while maintaining high standards and accountability.
