Lexington Christian Academy students–from sixth graders to seniors–participated recently in an extraordinary week-long program emphasizing the school’s commitment to experiential learning. Some of Greater Boston’s leading scientists, musicians, engineers, business professionals, artists, lawyers, and writers joined LCA faculty to encourage students in exploring and engaging in a variety of new learning opportunities.
Classes included: genetics, film-making, engineering, robotics, zoology, forensics, and chamber music, to name just a few. “I had the opportunity to work for a week with a leading cancer researcher from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard,” said one LCA senior. “It was an incredible opportunity.” On any given day the school was bustling with future engineers designing and testing robots; young artists conceiving, writing, painting, and publishing a children’s book; and prospective scientists touring top laboratories.
“Ten vans went out each day for programs in our best hospitals, businesses, restaurants, and museums,” explained Director Mary Bulger. “We are proud that the courses we offer for Academics in Action Week often lead to internships and summer employment opportunities for LCA students. We often hear that this is a week that changes students’ lives.”
“These workshops dynamically inform our students’ college and career choices,” said LCA Head of School, Tim Russell. “We are always looking for the best ways to help our students develop new interests and passions. One excellent way to do that is to invite top professionals to share their experiences within our academic community.”
Additional opportunities included a photography trip to New Mexico and the annual 8th grade tour of Washington, DC, and an international students’ tour of our nation’s capital.
Lexington Christian Academy is an independent college preparatory school that exists to educate young men and women in the arts and sciences in the context of a complete commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
