Kindergarten – 6th Grade

Kindergarten marks the beginning of a student’s academic career and holds the promise of great things ahead!  Students in LCCS’s lower school program experience a blend of fun activities that foster learning, high academic standards that infuse God’s truth into all areas of life, and a sense of community that promotes the goodness of God through service opportunities. As lower school students pursue excellence through activities designed to stretch them academically and spiritually, they develop positive habits that lay the foundation for success in middle and upper school. Developing a solid foundation in the early years of school provides stability and success as students continue to grow.  We look forward to partnering with you and your lower school student!

Lower School Educational Options

Traditional lower school provides a comprehensive program with instruction provided on campus five days per week. This model seeks to help our students grow academically and spiritually through teacher interaction 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.
