Junior High School

Lake Center Christian’s junior high school program offers a welcoming environment for students in grades 7 – 8 to further their education and grow in their faith. We offer a challenging curriculum to prepare them for high school and beyond, as well as a supportive team of teachers to exemplify Christian faith in action.

While many schools have moved to a middle school model for grades 5 – 8, Lake Center believes that students in grades 5 and 6 are still developing the skills necessary to manage young adulthood and are best served in an upper elementary setting.


Junior high school can be a challenging and exciting time for young students. Junior high students at Lake Center continue to receive a solid educational foundation in math, language arts and science, with options for advanced coursework.

Lake Center Christian offers students a variety of opportunities to supplement academics:

  • Co-curricular activities such as Academic Challenge, art club, robotics, ski club, theater
  • Digital literacy instruction
  • Technology enhanced curriculum through providing one laptop to each student
  • Gifted programming
  • Foreign language instruction
  • Special learning support (including occupational, speech and language, and instructional therapies, and early intervention programs). We participate in the Jon Peterson Scholarship Program.
