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.

LAKELAND — Having missed three earlier scoring opportunities and finding itself tied with Melbourne Central Catholic 21-21 in the fourth quarter, Lakeland Christian running back Bo Copen made sure the Vikings didn’t miss another opportunity.
Copen’s 41-yard touchdown run with 4:08 left in the game turned out to be the game winner as the Vikings defeated Melbourne Central Catholic 28-21 in the Class 3A regional semifinals Friday night.
“I was just waiting for my O-line to produce a block for me. I saw it and ran through it and got to the end zone,” Copen said of his TD run. “I saw two (MCC) guys coming, so I let my blockers block for me and I got it to the end zone.”
With the win, LCS (9-1) moves on to next Friday’s regional championship game on an eight-game winning streak. They will be at home against Orlando First Academy, which defeated Melbourne Holy Trinity, 21-14.
