Our society, at an ever increasing rate, is departing from Christian values and standards that were common place only a generation ago. As our team has watched this transpire, we’ve become increasingly committed to the need for education as a ministry of cooperation within the Christian community. We are thankful to be a part of this ministry and to have the opportunity to partner with LCS families as we invest in the academic, social, and spiritual development of our students.
