LCS School Information


Develop The Whole Student

At Lakeland Christian School, we take a seamless approach to education by preparing students not only in the classroom, but on the playing field, on the stage, through leadership opportunities, through chapel time, through extracurricular activities and with friends through social interaction. Every experience at LCS is intended to raise the bar in the student’s own life as it relates to excellence.

While many Christian schools provide an excellent spiritual environment for their students, academics are secondary and second rate. At LCS, our students first and foremost receive a first-rate education. They also learn that excellence goes beyond academic ability; excellence is demonstrated in the students’ commitment to people, in their depth of integrity, in their willingness to work hard, and in their leadership abilities.
