LITTLE RAPTORS KINDERGARTEN

When it comes to your Child's Kindergarten Education, One Size Doesn't fit All!

About Little Raptors - Why is it called that?

The mascot for our school is a Raptor. The word is derived from the Latin word "rapere," which means "to seize." Raptors are birds of prey that particularly love the high cliffs and peaks in the Lake Lure, Hickory Nut Gorge region.

It is not uncommon to see hawks, vultures, falcons, eagles, and osprey in our area.

Raptors are acutely aware of their surroundings, intelligent, curious, and often fly in flocks for greater teamwork impact.

Among all their feathered friends, they can soar to some of the highest heights in the bird world.

Like these regal birds, LLCA students are challenged to soar to new heights academically and personally, beginning day one in Kindergarten and throughout their educational journey at LLCA.

The selection of a raptor for our mascot is also a huge nod to our distinctive commitment to fostering a love of the outdoors and outdoor education in Hickory Nut Gorge.

REST ASSURED!

The safety of your children remains our highest priority.
LLCA follows all guidance from the CDC, and state and local officials to ensure current health and safety guidelines are followed throughout our campus and on our busses

NO MORE TRANSITION TRAUMA! - Lake Lure Classical Academy offers K-12 CONTINUITY. If your kids are currently enrolled in a pre-K program or elementary school that only goes through 4th or 8th grade, they can instead begin with LLCA and stay here all the way through high school. Siblings can stay together and the juggling of transportation challenges, with work schedules, can be reduced or even eliminated.

AN ALTERNATIVE TO ONE SIZE FITS ALL EDUCATION – Maybe you have tried or considered private preschool or Pre-K education, but it's just not a good fit for your child. When you begin to think long-term, perhaps you're intrigued by choosing a Charter School of Choice such as Lake Lure Classical Academy.
