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.

It was announced Saturday that the LCS chess team tied for 3rd Place in the middle division at the Nov. 5 Polk Scholastic Chess tournament in Bartow. The team previously won sole 3rd Place in the first tournament held Oct. 15. Saturday Jake Wittman was the top scorer and finished with three points. All the other players finished with two points. The four players that competed in the final round all won. The team posted a score of 9 points out of a possible 16. The season’s last team event will be Jan. 14, 2023. Coach Mark Williams is confident that another solid performance in January will place the team in the Top 3 for the season.
