The manner at which the students are encouraged to be creative, imaginative and optimistic is unmatched by any facility around it. My children came to LCS from the public school system and have loved this change since day one, coming home with so many positive stories on a daily basis. The entire staff is caring, heartfelt and personable. An amazing ground for higher learning!

Lancaster Christian School has become one of the greatest school around. The teachers are the best and we are blessed to have them. I would tell the world about our school if I could because its the top learning school around for miles. Our parents are happy and they keep coming back each year.

Great alternative to the public school system! The kids are taught using the ABeka program and the school has the AR program. Students are taught Christian values every day!
