I love working in this school environment. The staff is outstanding and capable. It is a true community committed to academic excellence. We balance academic rigor with a huge menu of electives. We have a fantastic computer lab, two science labs, a wonderful gym with a vigorous, winning athletic program. The is the Elementary and Middle School experience that every parent wants their child to have. Lighthouse is known for its strong math program and for graduating leaders.

My son is finishing up his sixth year at LCS, and each year we wonder how the next teacher could top the ones in previous years. What a group of well behaved children the kids at lighthouse Christian School are. My son was on Honor Role two quarters this year. And to think I almost passed up this amazing opportunity because I thought it was too much for my budget. They have a financial assistence program if you love the school but are on a limited income. Thank you lord for LCS, first class education close to home.
