Description

The purpose of Layton Christian High School is to develop students into virtuous, well-educated adults who work for the flourishing of their families, communities, and countries across the world. A dedicated teaching faculty and coaching staff, a small teacher-to-student ratio, and a school culture based on Christian principles enable LCA students to thrive in pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. A successful LCA student is one who thinks critically and compassionately—one who does good work in order to work for the good of others.

LCA prides itself on being a school of diversity. Despite our strong faith-based foundation, we do encourage students from all faiths to be a part of our school. We also have one of the highest percentages of ethnic diversity in Utah. Over the years the school has hosted students from over 40 countries. We maintain a significant international student population each year. We believe this provides benefits for the international students as well as our domestic students.
