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.
The girls basketball program works to engage and inspire girls in middle school through varsity to develop their talent and skills and compete at their highest level. Coaches and athletes look to rebuild the program and work with elementary aged students through camps and clinics to promote a love for the game. Players are expected to commit themselves to the team and carry themselves in a Christ-like way on the court and in the classroom.
