Program Options

Traditional Model

The traditional model provides a comprehensive academic program with instruction provided on campus five days per week. This model includes excellent academics that are taught from a biblical perspective. The traditional model seeks to help students grow academically and spiritually through close teacher interaction and supervision while partnering with parents throughout the process. While some might consider the traditional model the "ordinary" way to do school, our faculty and staff are dedicated to making LCCS an extraordinary experience for every student. Lower, middle, and upper school students identify their God-given gifts and callings and are encouraged to use those gifts in service to their community both inside and outside the classroom. Upper school students have experiential opportunities for growth through the Innovation Academies of Entrepreneurship, STEM, the Arts, and Leadership and Service.

University-Model® Lower School

The University-Model® at LCCS offers an alternative solution for parents desiring both the gift of time with their children and the services of a Christian school for students in grades kindergarten through 6th grade. The University-Model® was developed to preserve and strengthen the God-ordained family relationship and achieve a high degree of academic excellence. University-Model® students experience a five-day program; however, they are on campus part of the week. Students in kindergarten through 2nd grade spend 2 days a week on campus, and those is 3rd through 6th grade are on campus 3 days a week. The remaining days of the week (satellite days) are spent completing teacher-directed academic activities at home under the guidance of parents.

4-Day Middle School & Upper School

The 4-Day middle & upper school program allows students in grades 7 through 12 to have the benefits of engaging classes with traditional students as well as one satellite day of teacher-directed academic activities at home under the guidance of parents (Wednesdays). This model combines LCCS's excellent academics with the ability for students to progress independently. Similar to the traditional model, upper school students in the 4-Day program also have experiential opportunities for growth through the Innovation Academies of Entrepreneurship, STEM, the Arts, and Leadership and Service.
