Make Lake Country Classical Academy a Reality

Lake Country Classical Academy  (LCCA) will be the first public/tuition-free, K-12 classical charter school and the first affiliate school of the Barney Charter School Initiative  (BCSI) in the state of Wisconsin. Opening in the fall of 2021, LCCA will initially  serve K-9 students, expand by one grade per year, and will be a fully K-12 classical public charter school by 2024.

As an affiliate school of the BCSI, an outreach of Hillsdale College, LCCA will provide a classical education that is content-rich across four disciplines: math, science, literature and history, followed by attention to music, art, foreign language and character development. We invite you to watch the video, produced by BCSI, for a better understanding of LCCA's mission and vision. 

LCCA will not receive any state tuition support until shortly before it opens its doors. Even then, the costs are front-loaded: facilities, furniture, books, teacher training, marketing, legal expenses, and the list goes on. Any financial contribution ($25, $50, $100 or more) is greatly appreciated and will help us move LCCA forward and make it a reality. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations to LCCA are tax deductible. Thank you for your support and for helping us bring LCCA to life!
