LCA, Warsaw Christian Set To Begin First Year Merged As One
This will be the first school year that Lakeland Christian Academy and Warsaw Christian School will be merged under the LCA banner.
Warsaw Christian and LCA signed paperwork at the end of June to merge the two schools, effective July 1. The merger has been worked on for over a year.
First day back for students is planned for Aug. 17.
“We plan it to be a traditional school day,” LCA Superintendent Joe Elrod said.
He said Lakeland is trying to keep things as close to what parents are used to as possible in regards to how the schools work.
As of now, prekindergarten through sixth grade will stay at the Grace Community Brethren Church’s facility and the secondary students will remain at the campus in Winona Lake, Elrod said.
There are hopes to expand the Winona Lake facility to later include the elementary school. Elrod said LCA will be having a meeting in late August or early September to figure everything out in regards of how they want to proceed with the campus expansion.
LCA is renting the space from Community Grace Brethren Church for the elementary grades, said Elrod.
