I can't say enough good things about the teachers and administration, or how strong and great the academics are here. My daughters are thriving at LCS and LOVE going to school here. Choosing the right school was a tough job and a little scary, but I am confident that sending my girls to LCS was absolutely the best decision.

LCS is amazing! Strong academics in a Christ-centered, nurturing environment. The teachers are top notch - well trained and encouraging. They offer so many courses that are considered extras elsewhere - band, choir, drama, video, Spanish, art and computers. Wonderful student body! The kids are taught responsibility and kindness.

Lakewood Christian School was a perfect place for our daughter. She attended preschool - 8th grade and we feel she had a great education. She learned very strong writing skills, and enjoyed the creative environment. She was in choir, drama, and worship band. She loved each teacher and she know they loved her. She made life long friends that even now that she is in high school are her closest friends. The kids at LCS are so nice, and the academics are top notch!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
