We are new to LCS and we love it! We were drawn to the school by its obvious strong faith base, amazing administration and staff, as well as the many opportunities for our children.......spiritually, academically and socially! Thank you LCS for welcoming our family and making us feel at home!

We are so thrilled with the difference that LCS has made in the lives of our entire family. The atmosphere of caring within the faculty and the student body is absolutely amazing. My 10th grader transferred from public school at the beginning of this school year, and we have noticed an immediate improvement in his grades and his demeanor. When we asked him what the difference was, he told us that the teachers really care about him and WANT him to learn and that his fellow STUDENTS help him with his school work!! The fact that the teachers pray before each exam has helped him overcome the anxiety he used to have about testing. Instead of getting Ds and Es on exams, he is getting As and Bs, and the material is no less challenging than it was in his previous school. Time is built into the school week to make appointments with teachers for review or clarification, so he can concentrate on mastering the concepts at home instead of unraveling the mystery of what had been taught. My only regret is that we waited so long to make this move.

My family loves this school. We started attending in preschool and my children are now in 1st and 2nd grade. I wanted a Christian education for my children but also wanted a school that welcomed parent involvement. I have a child with special health concerns and I trust the school staff completely, yet they are very welcoming of me stopping in to check on my children at any time. After touring my local public school, I was not encouraged to help in the classroom and it turned me away. While the cost of private school can be a challenge, the school works with families to make it possible and I find it worth every penny. I would sacrifice so many other things in our life to send them to LCS. The school means that much to me.

We love this school! We''ve had kids enrolled for 9 years now. Our 3 kids each started in kindergarten. The teachers have been WONDERFUL. They are excellent at their jobs and they truly care about each of their students. We love how they integrate a Biblical worldview into every subject. The kids participate in chapel leadership and serve in the community through the school as well. Perfect size classes as well and parents are quite involved. The principals and school board are always willing to listen to any concerns as well.

We have been so grateful for Lansing Christian School. I remember when our 3 kids were in elementary school and I thought this was surely the most important time to have them there as they were developing their first impressions of school! They were singing great songs, hearing wonderful bible stores and being sweetly shaped and influenced by kind, devoted teachers that reaffirmed the lessons and values that they were learning at home. Then came middle school and I realized THIS was a very important time to be at Lansing Christian. My kids were quickly growing up and beginning to notice the opposite gender and they were being exposed to texting and the internet, literature, life and legacy! I was grateful for the positive guidance and mindset of our Christian staff. Excellent opportunities and consistent values were being taught through academics, athletics, theatre and field trips. Then came high school and having my kids at Lansing Christian now seemed the most critical. My kids were forming there own thoughts about faith and religion, political views and values. We appreciated not only their school friends but interacting with their families and grateful for the lifestyle that they represented. They were experiencing POSITIVE PEER PRESSURE as classmates held them up to support good choices and to stay on the high road. Our 3 children are now 18, 16, and 15. My oldest is now a freshman in college and she is so grateful for her years at Lansing Christian. She has come back to thank the staff and let them know how well prepared she was academically and how grateful she was for her leadership opportunities during her 13 years at Lansing Christian! We are still on the journey and we welcome you to come and check it out!

LCS has been a huge blessing to our family. We began sending my daughter there because they offer an every other day Kindergarten, but we have been so pleased with the staff and education she is receiving that I can''t imagine going to another school! The teachers are kind and skilled, and are fantastic at communicating with parents. The students I have had the pleasure of talking to are polite and impressive for their ages. We will be at Lansing Christian for years to come!
