Lanham Christian School seeks to partner with Christian families and local churches as we provide high quality education from a Christian worldview. LCS is a college preparatory day school that is a member of the Association of Christian Schools International and is one of only two K-12 Christian schools in Prince George’s County that are fully approved by the Maryland State Department of Education’s Board of Accreditation and Certification.
The last decade has been a very difficult time for private schools in general and Christian schools in particular. As private school enrollment has declined, many Christian schools in our area have been forced to close their doors. At the same time, there has been a host of new schools that have opened with great promise, only to subsequently close within a year or two. LCS has been providing high quality, Christ centered education to the Christian community for more than 40 years. Over 90% of our current families have re-enrolled and we expect greater than a 10% increase in enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year.
If small class size with significant amounts of individualized attention is important to you, and you are looking for a school to reinforce the Christian values that you have taught your children, we ask that you take a closer look at LCS.
School Mission and Vision
Shaping Character Developing Commitment Building Community Magnifying Christ
Our ultimate goal is to magnify Christ. With intentionality and purpose, we bring honor and glory to God through the growth of our students academically, socially, and spiritually. This is accomplished through:
Shaping Character – producing within students the traits that are both a reflection of God’s person and a precursor for the accomplishment of God’s purpose in their lives.
Developing Commitment – Building within students the necessary skill set of determination, self-discipline, and obedience that promote spiritual and academic growth.
Building Community – Establishing and growing relationships within the LCS community that enhance the ministry and further the ministry of Lanham Christian School.
LCS has been granted approval by the State of Maryland to operate as a private school for kindergarten through the twelfth grades. As a ministry of Grace Brethren Church of Lanham, LCS was granted the right to operate as a Church Exempt Educational Institution in 1977. Since the 2010-2011 school year, LCS has been fully approved by the Maryland State Department of Education’s Board of Certification and Accreditation. LCS is recognized by the Maryland State Department of Education as both a Fully Approved and a Church Exempt Educational Institution.
