A message from Liberty University's President,

Jerry Falwell Jr.





History of LCA



Established in 1967 as Lynchburg Christian Academy, the school developed as a ministry of Thomas Road Baptist Church to provide Christian education to children in central Virginia. The Academy, founded by Dr. Jerry Falwell, became a fully accredited institution, standing as a viable educational choice for parents who desired to have their children taught a Christian worldview from a Bible-based curriculum. Recognized as an accredited institution by the Commonwealth of Virginia, regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and internationally accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International, LCA has a recognized history of academic excellence.

Lynchburg Christian Academy was housed at the original Thomas Road Baptist Church location for 38 years. Upon completion of a new campus, the school moved in August 2005 to its present site adjacent to Liberty University. With the move, the school name was changed to Liberty Christian Academy to support Dr. Falwell’s dream that envisioned a total educational program under the Liberty banner for students from pre-school through a graduate university.
