Homecoming at Life Christian Academy

The tradition of Homecoming has its origin in alumni football games held at colleges and universities since the 19th century. Many schools including Baylor, Southwestern, Illinois, and Missouri have made claims that they held the first modern Homecoming. The NCAA, Trivial Pursuit, Jeopardy!, and references from the American TV drama NCIS give the title to the University of Missouri's 1911 football game during which alumni were encouraged to attend. It was the first annual Homecoming centered on a parade and a football game.

At Life Christian Academy, Homecoming Week is a time where we honor student athletes and our student body. We celebrate who they are as high achieving individuals and teams. LCA invites our parents and alumni to come back and celebrate with us throughout the week that has been planned by our ASB leaders.
