Laconia Christian Academy is on the move
We believe in caring for the whole student, and that means we attend to the body as well as the mind and heart. When we aim for physical health, we show gratitude for God’s masterful work in creating the human body. And, those bodies need to move! So, we don’t just give students fidget-friendly chairs. We give them extended recesses, outdoor adventures, physical education classes, skiing on the slopes, team sports, and a chance to hike in our beautiful state.
We have seen firsthand how team sports build community, leadership, and discipline. Win or lose, we expect our students to play with grit and integrity. LCA’s intramural and inter-scholastic team sports are open to students in grades 5 – 12 and include regular practices and games. We are a member of the New Hampshire Small Private School Athletic League (NHSPAL), and also compete periodically with teams outside this league.
Fall: Co-Ed Soccer, Girls Volleyball
Winter: Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball
We pause classroom learning, and hit the slopes! Throughout the winter months we give every student the chance to enjoy New Hampshire’s snowy peaks, and to develop or improve their own skiing abilities.
We diligently did our research and found abundant evidence that our kids need to be allowed time for unstructured physical play in nature. Beginning in the fall of 2019, our younger students will benefit from the innovative TimberNook program which “intricately weaves the therapeutic aspects of nature with its unique understanding of child development to create an outdoor program that supports every aspect of the growing child.”
