School Notes:

Lakeside Christian School was founded in 1975 as a ministry of Lakeside Community Chapel to provide the youth of today with the academic and spiritual training to be the Christian adults of tomorrow. Every aspect of the school's educational program is centered on the eternal truths of God's Word, and promotes the development of each student to reach his highest potential. The Bible teaches that responsibility for the training of children is given by God to their parents, and it is the goal of Lakeside to assist parents in carrying out this responsibility. As the curriculum and programs are submitted to the scriptural test, we can be confident that the young people are being trained for their future service for the Lord. Lakeside's goal is to present to our students an education that is wrapped within a biblical worldview. We accomplish this through the combination of the best Christian teacher and the best available curriculum. When a curriculum used is not from a Christian publisher, Lakeside teachers will incorporate and integrate God's Word into their daily lessons, as well as into their modeling of Christ to the school and community.

I've had three kids at Lakeside for the past 7 yrs. Wouldn't have them anywhere else. Biblical application to classes. Small school setting so more like family. If you have a question or concern, teachers and administrators readily available. Mr. Jensen is the family favorite ??'?. Never seen him be anything other than kind. Go Lions!

I am proud to say that I am a 2015 graduate of Lakeside. Being at Lakeside was the most influential times of my life. Lakeside is not only a school to me the close one on one interaction makes it like a family. They display a strong Christian atmosphere not only through words but through their actions. I would highly recommend Lakeside Christian school. -De'Andre Dodson
