Principal's Message

Greetings! I am glad you want to learn about a Christ-centered education for your children. We strive to provide families in our community with an affordable, Christian-based education. Our goal is to see each of our students make a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and live with sincerity and discipline.

I'm honored to be the first principal in the Academy's history who is also a graduate of the school. We have several core and elective teachers who are alumni. We appreciate the foundation that Living Word Academy has laid for us, where each day begins with chapel and Bible study and ends with prayer. Christ is our priority above all else, and this belief has become a foundation for the coming generations.

Our graduates are a living testimony on behalf of LWA. They have gone on to become doctors, lawyers, engineers, homemakers, teachers, janitors, and everything in between. Many use their careers to serve others, and we are blessed to hear of their continuing fruitfulness in Christ.

If you would like to learn more, please don't hesitate to contact me.
