Lakeland Christian SchoolOne 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.
WHAT LED YOU TO LAKELAND CHRISTIAN SCHOOL AND YOUR CURRENT ADMINISTRATIVE POSITION?
I am a graduate of LCS (Class of 1990). After 5 years in the corporate world and 10 years in the Polk County Public School system I started at LCS during the 2007-08 school year. I am currently in my 15th year at LCS.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO IN YOUR LCS JOB?
Interacting with students in a genuine manner to help them develop from exactly the place where they are.
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT LAKELAND?
Lakeland is a beautiful city to raise a family. Big enough to have all of the amenities that you may need, yet small enough to feel like you are known in your community. Lakeland is also very conveniently located between two major cities with international airports and a large variety of recreational activities.
