Lubbock Christian School is an amazing place. My children are receiving an excellent education in the classroom at the same time they are learning to excel outside of the classroom. LCS encourages its students and families alike to strive for excellence in everything. My husband is a graduate of LCS and says the school changed his life for the better. He would not be the man he is today without the principles he learned from the teachers at LCS. Check it out!

Lubbock Christian School (LCS) has been a blessing for our son and family. Our son loves the school, its teachers, and coaches, and we do as well. Based on our experience, we could not give it a higher recommendation. Our son has attended LCS since Kindergarten, and he is now in high school. LCS has a different culture than most schools that we feel has been very beneficial for our son's development. LCS actively tries to develop students in multiple dimensions (i.e. intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social), and the connection to faith is evident in every corner (e.g. the classroom, games, activities). While not everyone may appreciate our perspective, holding our son accountable to a higher standard grounded in Christian principles has helped provide a moral anchor for his future actions, his words and, his life. We value setting the bar higher, not lower! While LCS is a "private" school, we chose LCS in part because it wasn't full of upper-class families, but rather a mixture of economic perspectives. The fact that some families spend their last pennies to send their kids to this school meant a lot to us, and we continue to see that mixture today. LCS also has a small school feel. Kids have a great opportunity to participate in whatever they desire, whether that be academic competitions, athletics, band, etc., or all of the above. For instance, I love seeing the same student play the first half of a football game and then jump into the band to play at halftime. We cannot say enough about the school staff and the amount of time and love that they pour into the kids. Our son is very involved in athletics, and the athletics director and coaches do an amazing job of investing in his development. You can watch kids transform physically over the years through the well-organized and continuous efforts of the coaching staff to safely progress them forward. But the transformation goes far beyond the physical. Sure, the LCS coaches have challenged our son to become a better player and reach a higher potential, but they also challenge him to become a better human. When Christian principles, life lessons, leadership training, high expectations, etc. are offered by teachers and coaches that clearly care about him and pour love into him, it becomes a very powerful, life-changing force that goes far beyond athletics. For us and our son, LCS has been truly amazing.

LCS A parent makes many decisions in life that have a profound effect on the future of their children spiritually, relationally, and educationally and one of the best decisions that we made was to have our two boys spend their K-12th years at LCS. The growth they experienced solidified and expanded on the foundation of faith and character that will carry on into their kingdom work in their families, churches, and careers. The opportunities in music, athletics, and many other extracurricular activities allowed them to develop existing talents and to discover new ones while always focusing on the education of their hearts and heads more than focusing on the wins and losses. We will be forever grateful for the investment by the teachers and coaches into the lives of our children.

I would highly recommend LCS to any family looking for a place to belong. There is a wonderful community here, along with a great school with awesome facilities and staff. No matter what your kid needs, whether it be academics or sports or both, they still find a place to belong. We love it here.

Our children have been at LCS from kindergarten and now through 8th grade. We love being a part of this Christ-centered family! The teachers are engaging and truly care about our students and enjoy the freedom to teach the curriculum in their own style. The band program is exceptional, and the director is the best! The athletic program is amazing and I'm so thankful that my kids have the influence of these Christian mentors who push them to always give 110% in athletics and in their walk with Christ. We have been truly blessed by friends and others we have come to know through this great school.

LCS is a very special place. The faculty loves, cares for and truly cherishes each child they have in class. The community serves well and is there for each other. Having no family close, the eagle family has taken us in, loved our family well and has been the hands and feet of Jesus to us.

I would highly recommend Lubbock Christian School to anyone who wants to enroll their children in the best school in Lubbock. :) For our three children (PreK through Junior High), LCS has been life changing in the most positive way. The teachers, coaches, and staff are the amazing, supportive, spiritual leaders you are happy to send your children to learn from everyday. It is a blessing at LCS for our children to have the opportunity to be involved in as many sports and extra-curricular/fine arts activities as they are interested in participating in-..and the instruction in all of those things is top-notch. I could never say enough about the community of parents, friends and teachers here, and the impact it has made on our lives and the lives of our children. The atmosphere is kind here. Seeing your children thrive makes a momma heart happy, and it's easy for children to thrive at Lubbock Christian.

We never expected to be a private school family but decided we wanted a small-town experience in the heart of Lubbock. We never knew how much the school would be such a blessing for our family. The staff love our kids and challenge them in so many ways. Athletics starting in middle school are exceptional. The band is also top-notch. LCS extremely blessed our family. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

We have been at Lubbock Christian School for nine years. From elementary to high school, the faculty is engaging, encouraging, and challenging. Some of my favorite things about Lubbock Christian are the personal relationships the faculty develops with the students. The teachers are not just educators, but also spiritual mentors. Lubbock Christian encourages students to be involved: whether it is sports, theater, student council, or robotics. Students can choose to do one or all! Christ's love is not only taught but also lived out daily by the faculty and staff. Walking across campus, even as a parent, the staff knows my name and my children. At Lubbock Christian School, each family is loved and supported and valued.

I have had 2 children attend LCS, and the Christ-centered education is second to none. I have never been a part of a more loving/serving community. Both of my boys thrived and grew more intellectually and spiritually than I could have even imagined. With the small class sizes, top-notch athletics programs, involved extra-curricular activities, I can't think of a better place in Lubbock to be.

Our children have been at Lubbock Christian for ten years. Moving our kids from public school to LCS was the best decision we could have made. The curriculum and extracurricular activities are top notches and LCS is special for its community of students and parents. There is no better school in Lubbock.

I cannot say enough about the amazing experiences both educational and spiritual my children have received at Lubbock Christian School. We have lived in different cities and my children have attended different schools, including public schools, and nothing we have experienced! Has come close to the spiritual and educational readiness my children have received for life and higher education than LCS. The faculty is top-notch, the small class size ensures success for all children there and every staff member and board member strive for continued excellence for our kids . I know that every day that my children leave our home, they will be loved, nurtured, provided an amazing academic education, a heart that seeks God and His kingdom and for a future for higher education.

I would highly recommend LCS to any family in Lubbock. I attended LCS K-12 and was tremendously blessed by my time at this school. The people I was around every day helped in developing the passionate and professional woman I am today. I am looking forward to the day that my children start school and are also blessed by the teachers, students, and values that are experienced at LCS. Not only did this school nurture my social, emotional, and spiritual growth, but it prepared me to be a great student when I was in college.
