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.

8th grade LCS and RISE student researcher, Kylah Blough earned a second place in the Animal Science category at the Polk Regional Science & Engineering Fair this year for her research titled: Wing Reflectance Variation in the Territorial White Peacock Butterfly.

Mr. Croxton, the teacher for the Experimental Science students, is excited for what will come in the 2019-2020 school year.  “Most LCS families don’t know what Mr. Croxton’s class does in RISE with Experimental Science.  The video [below], about Kylah Blough’s research (produced by a team of professionals), helps tell the broader story— LCS RISE is striving to become the premiere research program for middle and high school students in the Southeast,” states Jennifer Canady, M.A., Director, RISE Institute.
