Land O’ Lakes Christian School is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Land O’ Lakes, founded in 1978 to provide a high quality education for Christian families. Our faculty and staff are all Christians and the Bible is integrated in the entire program because we believe that “in all things He must have preeminence.”Land O' Lakes Christian School’s philosophy is based upon the Word of God. The primary objective and purpose of the school is to train the student in the way of life presented in the Scriptures while giving him a good general education. Since the primary reason for the existence of the school is to provide a spiritual ministry, evangelistic efforts are made to make sure that all students have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ so that the teaching of spiritual truths may have a firm foundation. This is followed by instruction in right thinking, good conduct, and clean living in the light of the principles of God’s Word. The academic program, through the traditional approach, is developed with the goal of providing students with the best possible program of studies. We emphasize the mastery of the fundamental blocks of materialnecessary for satisfactory achievement and stress the acquisition of facts and concepts in the various areas of study, leading to the development and exercise of the powers of reasoning. Methods of teaching proven to be effective are utilized with a constant search for better methods. Realizing the differences in innate abilities, we encourage and expect each student to do his best. We believe the traditional system of education strengthens the mind and builds character. It encourages competition and teaches the value of living under a free enterprise system of government. Character training is an important element in Land O' Lakes Christian School. We believe that the heart of character training is teaching obedience (deciding to do what is right), which will eventually cultivate an inner self-discipline. This training is essential to the emotional, physical, social, and spiritual well-being of the student. The teacher is the authority in the classroom. Discipline is administered firmly but fairly. To obey, to do right, to love God and country, and to always measure one’s attitudes against the principles laid out in the Scriptures are practices we strive to instill in each student, thus equipping him for his role in God’s plan for his life and for his proper place in society.

Scandals in private school are bound to raise questions for those of us thinking about sending our children to private school. Regardless of how sensational these scandals may appear, they are actually few and far between.
