Value of a Lake Center Christian Education
Deciding to send your child to a private school is big decision. There is a commitment from the family to make this a priority, so it’s important to know the value of a LCCS education. At LCCS, we believe Christian education has many benefits, and our staff is committed to not only academic success, but spiritual growth and support.
We’ve outlined below some of the value your child receives with a LCCS education.
Caring and Supportive
While this cannot be measured in statistics, students at LCCS benefit from being surrounded by others with likewise beliefs. Classes are taught from a Bible-based perspective. Teachers and staff serve as Christian role models. We are proud of the nurturing environment that flourishes at LCCS.
LCCS infuses a Biblical worldview in all we do. We’re passionate about helping students seek God’s will in their lives. Serving others and developing a love for serving Christ are of equal importance to academic knowledge.
College Attrition and Scholarships
College and career readiness are important for future success. We emphasize academic preparation for higher education. Fully 100 percent of our students receive acceptance into the college or university of their choice. Our students consistently rank higher than state average on the ACT, giving them an advantage on college applications.
College Credit Plus (CCP) and Advanced Placement (AP) classes are available to help students get a jump on earning college credit. There are often no fees associated with CCP.
LCCS students who applied for college (four graduating classes with an average of 44 students per class) have been offered $2,073,534 in scholarships over the past four years. Our alumni are doctors, lawyers, physical therapists, worship leaders, entrepreneurs and business owners, NASA engineers, songwriters and musicians, just to name a few professions.
Gifted and Talented Enrichment Program
Our gifted students benefit from a variety of opportunities designed to challenge their minds. Jennifer Neel, who recently received the “Educator of the Year” from the Lake Township Chamber of Commerce, leads the gifted and talented enrichment program, for students grade 3 through 6. She also is available for consults with teachers from kindergarten through grade 12.
Our junior and high school students continue to be challenged by our curriculum and co-curricular activities such as Academic Challenge, Model UN, Chess Club and Robotics-Engineering Club, to name a few.
Smaller Class Size
Students at LCCS benefit from more individualized attention, due to smaller class sizes and lower teacher/student ratios. Our graduating classes range between 35 – 55 students. With smaller classes, our students have more interaction with our faculty, more than 60 percent of which have advanced degrees. At LCCS, our faculty have an average of 10.6 years of classroom teaching experience.
Special Needs Education Program
LCCS offers special needs curriculum for all students who have an IEP at all grade levels. We make specific arrangements depending on the student’s needs.
