The hallmarks of the school are strong academics, championship athletics, award-winning fine arts, and a close-knit school-family partnership. However, the primary distinctive of LCS is that classes are taught from a Biblical perspective, emphasizing God's truth as it applies to every aspect of a student's life Since it's founding in 1954, Lakeland Christian School has been dedicated to providing "Education in the Light of God's Word."From its humble beginning in three small classrooms to its current status as Polk County’s oldest, largest and most comprehensive non-public school, Lakeland Christian School has remained committed to God’s truth and academic excellence. This tradition of excellence permeates every facet of school life at Lakeland Christian School – in the classroom, in athletics, and in the arts.At Lakeland Christian School, we take a seamless approach to education by preparing students not only in the classroom, but on the playing field, on the stage, through leadership opportunities, through chapel time, through extracurricular activities and with friends through social interaction. Every experience at LCS is intended to raise the bar in the student’s own life as it relates to excellence.While many Christian schools provide an excellent spiritual environment for their students, academics are secondary and second rate. At LCS, our students first and foremost receive a first-rate education. They also learn that excellence goes beyond academic ability; excellence is demonstrated in the students’ commitment to people, in their depth of integrity, in their willingness to work hard, and in their leadership abilities.What can you expect at Lakeland Christian School?Academic ExcellenceFamily AtmosphereSpiritual DevelopmentCompetitive AthleticsEmphasis on the ArtsExtracurricular Opportunities for EveryoneA balanced approach to education that develops the whole student
