School Notes

  • Lanham Christian School is a K4-12 college preparatory day school. We are members of both Association of Christian Schools International and Mid-Atlantic Christian School Association. We are one of only two (K4-12) Christian School in Prince Georges County that are fully approved by the Maryland State Department of Education`s Board of Accreditation and Certification. We realize that there are many options available for families when it comes to their children`s education and appreciate the fact that you have taken a few minutes to consider LCS.Lanham Christian is a small school with a big mission. It is our objective to provide high quality education from a Christian worldview. We share your concerns about your children living up to their God-given potential. Allow us to share with you two ways in which we seek to minister to your family. One of the most researched topics in all of education is the effect of a small class size on student achievement. Today, there is no question - students in small classes do much, much better - in math, in reading, and in overall performance. That is why we limit our class size. Our current average class size in elementary is 11.7, in middle school is 19.5, and in high school is 14. It is important that good students and good teachers not be limited by an over-crowded classroom.Additionally, Lanham Christian School is a ministry to Christian families. There are many fine outreach schools that seek to bring Christian values to an un-churched student body. That is not our focus. We seek to partner with Christian homes and local churches in instilling a Christian world view in our students, equipping them to succeed in every aspect of their development.

This is my son's first year at Lanham Christian School and the environment at the school has allowed him to grow mentally and spiritually. As a parent one of the things I appreciate about the school is the level of communication between the parents and teachers. The teachers are very responsive to inquiries, and they are all working toward the same mission, the success of the students. The school has encouraged the students to start researching colleges and universities that he may want to attend in four years. I thought that recommending them to look at schools early in their high school career was a great idea and I completely support it. Overall the school is doing a wonderful job with my son and I recommend others to take a look at this school as well.

I have my kids at Lanham Christian School. We have had a good experience there. The administration gets involved so you will be helped as much as possible. The classes are small which makes one on one help incredible. If your child needs help the teacher will stay after and help. The teachers love the students and want them to succeed. I love the music programs at Easter and Christmas. What a God honoring school!

My daughters attended and graduated from Lanham Christian School. The school trains students to academically excel and teachers and staff strive to show students how to live a Godly Christian life. They have a retreat at the beginning of the year at a camp to get students away from everyday life and focus on learning about God. This begins new friendships with students which lasts the year. I love the Godly values my children learned while attending Lanham Christian School.

You would think it would be easier to get your child into an elementary or primary school than into a prep school. But in fact it is almost as complicated.
