Lakewood Catholic Academy (LCA) is a private, Catholic, co-educational elementary school in Lakewood, OH – a western suburb of Cleveland – serving students from preschool age through grade eight.
In 2005, decreasing enrollment and increasing costs of Catholic education forced the closing of three Catholic schools in Lakewood, including Saint Clement School, Saint Luke School and Saint James School. Determined to continue Catholic education in Lakewood, the members of each parish came together to plan for a new, consolidated school to be located on the grounds of the former Saint
Augustine Academy on Lake Avenue. In 2010, Transfiguration Church became the fourth participating partner of the school.
