School Notes

  • Lake County Baptist School seeks to provide a biblically-based Christian education. We seek to instill a biblical worldview in every subject and, as age appropriate, at every grade level. Students are encouraged to develop Christian values and character in their behavior and lifestyle. Academic rigor is also highly valued as our highschool classes are designed as college prepratory courses. 
  • We believe a child must develop in all areas to include spiritual, academic, social, and physical well-being. With that in made, we provide opportunities for students in fine arts (such as acting, drama, art, music and more) and in sports (such as soccer, volleyball, and basketball).
  • Our student body is highly diverse with many ethnic groups and church affiliations represented.
