School Reviews

I am the parent of a 2nd grader at LCS. My daughter is excelling at this school. Not only are the faculty and staff are very caring and nurturing. New to the Baltimore, MD area, LCS had welcomed my daughter with open arms. We have never felt like "strangers". In addition, she is getting a biblical education that will help her develop into a respectful young lady. I would highly recommend this school for any parent who wants to have their children attend a loving school with small class sizes.

I have an 8th grader, and a 4th grader -- both have been at the school since Kindergarten. This school is like a family, and the faculty and staff truly care about our kids. The academics are challenging, there are many opportunities for exploring gifts and abilities, and I know that my 8th grader is well-prepared to enter high school next year. There are opportunities in sports, drama, music, foreign language, a computer lab, as well as clubs and other activities. Most importantly, the school has made a huge impact on my kids'' relationship with Jesus. It has been spectacular to have them in an environment where Christ is glorified in all things, and my kids are encouraged daily to walk with God. I couldn''t ask for more! My 8th grader recently returned from the 8th-grade mission trip to Costa Rica. It was a culmination of so many things taught through the years (including being able to use their Spanish!). As a parent, I have also made many wonderful friendships with other parents at the school. What a blessing to know the families that my kids spend time with, and to build those connections.

I am actually now an alumni parent of Liberty Christian School, having completed 9 blessed years with my son at LCS. My husband and I desired for our son to grow up in a Christ-centered learning environment, where God''s word, The Bible, is freely taught and lived out. We are grateful for the wonderful and godly LCS faculty and staff who gave our son a good education, and showed him the various hues of devoted Christ follower in the colors of their unique personalities. Many unique personalities, but one heart beating for the Lord! LCS has nurtured my son on the foundation of our Lord Jesus, and we believe that he can now brightly shine Christ''s light in the world of his public school, in which he is doing well. Thank God for Liberty Christian School!

I am a new parent at Liberty Christian. I have a daughter that has started 6th grade here and I can honestly say that I am completely satisfied in the decision that I made to send her here. After spending her last 2 years in Public School, I noticed that she started to conform to her surroundings in order to "fit in". She has always been in a christian private school up until that point and couldn''t understand why people made fun of her because she was "too nice". She was bullied and everything else; considering that middle school is a very important transitional time for tweens, I decided to put her back in an environment in which she felt like "herself". My daughter loves going to school everyday and has made friends very easily; she even loves all of her teachers and staff members at the school. I have had nothing but good encounters thus far. Liberty Christian has been Awesome !!!
