Lakeland Christian School

One of the core values of LCS is the belief that we are partnering with parents in the Christian education of their children. We believe that mutual respect, communication and involvement by all partners is essential for success of our mission.LCS is a school. We believe that being a Christian school and being a top-flight academic institution should not be mutually exclusive. On the contrary, we take the mandate of Colossians 3:23 that calls us to strive to be the best. We provide a variety of rigorous, engaging, academic and co-curricular activities that enable students to identify and express the full range of their unique gifts and abilities.

From its humble beginning in three small classrooms to its current status as Polk County’s oldest, largest and most comprehensive non-public school, Lakeland Christian School has remained committed to God’s truth and academic excellence. This tradition of excellence permeates every facet of school life at Lakeland Christian School – in the classroom, in athletics and in the arts.



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.
