Independent Studies Program (ISP)

Lake Center Christian School designed the K – 6 Independent Studies Program (ISP) to support homeschooling families with additional resources and opportunities. ISP offers the benefits of a Christian education with a biblical worldview for families who choose not to enroll their students full-time for various reasons, such as pursuit of a more individualized education or specific athletic or fine arts goals, financial limitations and health concerns. 
This unique program blends the benefits of homeschooling with a Christian school. Students in ISP are enrolled at Lake Center Christian but do not attend full-time. Instead, they participate in weekly on-campus instruction that is chosen to supplement their homeschooling curriculum.

The Independent Studies Program follows the mission of Lake Center to assist Christian families and their churches in equipping students for lifelong learning and service to Christ.
