Campus Prayer List

April 05, 2021
By LPA staff

Join us by Praying:

The Lord’s continued guidance, direction, unity, favor, and blessing upon the school.

Wisdom for the team that will work to acquire and improve the facility on behalf of the school.

Continued favor in the eyes of governmental officials and all of those who will labor on our behalf (contractors, engineers, architects, subcontractors, etc.).

Safety for everyone involved.

Excellence and success converting the prospective campus to the future home of LPA Mariners!

The Lord’s continued provision and preparation to facilitate this opportunity.


Supplications & Prayers:

We are humbled by the goodness of our King and thankful in all things.  Please join us in supplications & prayers to our Lord throughout this journey.  There is much that must first be approved by York county officials and our bank before we can move forward with closing on this property.


We would ask that you pray with us on a daily basis.  Our father taught us how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13

Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,[b]
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,[c]
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
     but deliver us from evil.


We find further encouragement about or life in Christ and prayer in I John and I Thessalonians


I John 5:1-15

Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.  In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,  for everyone born of God overcomes the world.

This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

 This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify:  the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement. We accept human testimony, but God’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of God, which he has given about his Son.  Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.


I Thessalonians 5:16-18. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


Prayer Requests:

 Wisdom & Discernment – Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
     and he will make straight your paths.

 Favor from York County planning, fire, DOT, commission – I Timothy 2:1-2

 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people,  for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.


                  Favor for change of use

                  Favor for special parking request

                  Favor for use of the second floor for education

                  Favor for an expedited approval for our civil engineering plan

                  Favor with DOT that we will not need to add a turning lane

                  Favor for an expedited approval of our facility design (separated fire areas)

Favor with the homeowners association regarding fields and parking Galatians 5:14

For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”


Pray for the workers who will build the campus.  Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

Pray that we can raise funding for the campus.  II Corinthians 9:7

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency[b] in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, “He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor his righteousness endures forever.”  He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness.

 Pray that the property on Hands Mill will sell quickly and for a fair market price.  Leviticus 25:14

And if you make a sale to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor, you shall not wrong one another.

Pray that we will be good stewards of God’s resources.  I Chronicles 29:12

Both riches and honor come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all.

Pray for the teachers, for the executive team, the board, the families & the ministry of Lake Pointe Academy.  I Peter 4:10

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace

Goodnight New York: High School Formal

March 29, 2018
By LPA staff

Who? 9th – 12th grade students and guests (9th – 12th grade).

What? We would like to invite you to “a New York City VIP evening on the river; think elegant, classy, and jazzy”! This is a time of fun, food, and dancing. Tickets can be bought at the front desk for $25.00 per student. Tickets will not be sold at the door and must be bought by the end of school Friday, April 20th (no exceptions will be made).

Where? Brakefield at Riverwalk in Rock Hill, SC (1111 Brakefield Drive, Rock Hill, SC 29730). The formal location sometimes does not show up on people’s GPS. It is in Riverwalk off Cherry rd. in Rock Hill SC, 29730. There are two things you can do if you find the gps in your phone not taking you to Brakefield.

1. Here is a link to google maps that shows the directions from LPA to Brakefield.

2. You can just go to and search “directions to 1111 Brakefield Dr. Rock Hill, SC 29730 from [INSERT YOUR ADDRESS HERE]. Then click “directions” at the bottom right corner of the google maps box.

3. Most smart phones have GPS capabilities, turn “location” switch to on for your phone, go to google and do the above step 2 and it should give you step by step GPS directions as you drive.

When? Friday, April 20th from 7:00 – 11:00 pm.

Students not involved in set-up will not be admitted before 7:00 pm.

Dress? Students are to follow LPA’s standard dress code with the following modifications: girls may choose to wear strapless or sleeveless dresses. Guys, remember that this is a formal occasion and your attire should fit the setting (dress pants, collared shirt, dress shoes, or a suit and tie, or a tux). We would like to reiterate that formal attire overtly drawing attention to oneself, exposed cleavage, backless attire, skin-tight attire, bare bellies (to be clear, no stomach or back is to be showing whatsoever), see-through material in any part of the body of the dress, and outfits ending (including slits) more than 3 inches above the knee are not allowed. If needed, the dress code can be found on our web site at, by choosing the “About Us” tab and then the “Policies” tab. Please keep in mind that “backless attire” refers to revealing anything beneath the bottom of one’s shoulder blades, “bare bellies” refers to any part of the stomach being shown. Dresses must come no higher than 3 inches above the knee…materials that are see through do not count as length. Keep in mind that dancing will be taking place at the Formal and so check your dress for flexibility and also for how it does when pulling off some awesome dance moves. Guys if you are having questions whether or not your dress is formal appropriate feel free to text Mr. Miller a picture (704) 564-0819. Ladies if you have questions whether or not your dress is formal meets the regulations, feel free to text Mrs. Brewer a picture (803) 493-3451.

Guest? Who may participate

While many schools host a formal event for juniors and seniors, due to its modest sized high school, LPA includes all of its high school students. These 9th through 12th grade academy students are welcomed to invite one guest each, further adding to the number and diversity of attendees. A ninth grade student is defined as one registered as such, according to LPA criteria. This generally means a student who is currently engaging at least his or her fourth high school credit, including English I, who has attained the age of 14 years of age.

1. Invited guests of academy students: Guests of LPA high school students are welcome, according to the following criteria:

          · The guest is a currently enrolled high school student

          · The guest’s age is 14 on or before the event date. The age requirement further maintains the high school level attendance.

2. Guests must agree to abide by LPA’s “house rules” and general policies for the event:

· The LPA student host and his or her family agree to serve the guest in active hospitality:

        o Helping the guest to feel welcomed and introduced to others

        o Willing to help translate the LPA culture, and its approaches, policies, and rules, since a guest cannot be expected to have such knowledge on his or her own.

        o Willing to take ultimate responsibility for the guest’s participation, ensuring the guest’s conduct is within academy culture and boundaries.

*There is one form to turn in if you have a guest. The form must be signed by the LPA student and parents acknowledging their responsibility for the said guest AND signed by the LPA guest acknowledging that he or she will abide by the basic in-house rules at the LPA event. Both forms must be turned into the front desk by Wednesday, April 18th.

Exceptions for age or grade level

Exceptions will be considered in special circumstances, but these will generally be limited to older guests, such as those beyond high school, who are in a family approved relationship with a junior or senior. Such appeals should be made in writing and delivered directly to the Student Life Director within the stated guest review period.

Chaperones? There will be 7-8 staff members present throughout the entirety of the Formal.

Food? If you are willing and want to donate food for the Formal, you can find our food list on the google doc (click link below) and sign up for the various items. Again we are always thankful for parents who make these events happen…so thank you!

If you have any questions regarding the formal please email me at Thanks!

Annual Meeting

February 08, 2017
By LPA staff

Families Vision meeting and registration kick-off: Tue. Feb. 21


LPA soon holds its annual vision meeting, which looks ahead to next year. This event is also the formal launch to registration for 2017-18. It is hard to believe another year has passed, but it is February again.


The good news is that we have exciting information to share this year!

You are invited:  Tue., Feb. 21       7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

The annual meeting has taken different forms through the years, as leaders have tried different approaches. Two years ago, we celebrated LPA’s 10th year with visitors representing our national University Model association. Last year, the event was paired with science night for efficiency. This year, after much conversation and prayer, we are simplifying things a bit.

Adults only.

The year’s meeting is designed for adults. Secondary students are welcome to attend if they sit with the parent the entirety of the program and participate. The event is not staffed to supply child care, and having students roam the campus last year was counter-productive.

This may mean that if other supervision options are not available, only one parent might attend, while the other stays with the children. That’s understandable.  

The meeting is an opportunity for parents to learn more about the academy’s vision and direction, which has continually been in refining process since the campus first opened. Attendees will hear grade level supervisors and other leaders share the emphases and initiatives for the next school year – and beyond – including:

  • Emphases and initiatives for next year, by LPA’s three academic levels and extra-curricular programs
  • Accreditation report from coordinator Dr. Gail Stowe
  • Plans for expanded student life in the elementary grades
  • Facilities expansion update
  • Information and materials to kick-off the registration season

Registration materials

There are no giant secrets. Tuition is not doubling, nor is the academy becoming a Chinese immersion magnet school or anything. Still, as a courtesy to families who attend, we will not release registration materials before the meeting for any reason.

We look forward to seeing you on the 21st!
