Yes! Ater-School Care is offered each school day from 3:30-5:30 pm for students in preschool through grade 6. After-School Care is supervised by LCCS staff members. Children participate in play time, quiet study time, games, crafts, snacks (provided by parents), and a movie (every other Friday). See details and sign-up to use after-school child care here.
Eleven local public school districts provide busing to and from school each day. Additionally, LCCS offers a shuttle to transport students in grades PreK-12 (not preschool) before and after school between LCCS and Calvary Baptist Church/Anchor Christian Academy on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. The shuttle cost is a one-time payment of $275 providing unlimited rides for the school year. See transportation details and commit to use the shuttle here.
The LCCS dress code is based on modesty and wholesomeness. We work in partnership with you as parents to promote these values. Student appearance should not distract from the academic nature of LCCS. See dress code details in the LCCS handbook.

The LCCS Board of Trustees commissions a finance committee representing parents from both UM and traditional programs with business and financial expertise. The finance committee conducts a thorough market analysis comparing LCCS’s tuition rates to its closest Christian school competitors and examines LCCS’s current financial and enrollment position. Based on this analysis, the finance committee votes to present the LCCS board its recommendation for next academic year's tuition rates, which both strengthen the school’s financial position and ensures continuing quality and superlative value while remaining competitive in the local private school market.
LCCS remains competitive within the local market of private schools both in terms of its tuition rates and in terms of its high-quality value proposition. LCCS also remains committed to socio-economic diversity. Families with a demonstrated financial need can obtain substantial tuition assistance and discounted tuition rates through LCCS’s need-based tuition assistance programs.
It is recommended that you apply for grant and aid using your current year tax return. If necessary, you can upload your previous year's tax return with W2s. For those who are self-employed and do not have W2s, a current tax return must be used. The application, along with required documentation and corresponding payment, must be completed by March 1 for priority consideration.
- What is continuous enrollment?
- With continuous enrollment, what if we are not sure of our enrollment plans for the coming school year?
- What if I want to cancel my continuous enrollment for the following school year? Then what if I change my mind and decide to enroll?
- How will I pay reenrollment fees if there is no online reenrollment?
Continuous enrollment streamlines the enrollment process and tells us that you want your child at LCCS until graduation (unless you choose to opt out). There are no cumbersome reenrollment forms to fill out year after year. It also guarantees your child’s spot in the class for each subsequent year and reduces the administrative burden on school staff. Learn more about continuous enrollment.
No problem! If you are unsure of your plans for the coming school year, we advise that you provide notice of withdrawal prior to February 28 so that you are not charged the reenrollment fee for the coming year. You can then reenroll at any time when your plans become more certain. Note, however, that in choosing this option you will not be eligible for the early registration fee discount and your student will not be guaranteed a spot in the classroom.
