Foreign Language

Using an electronic based teaching program such as Rosetta Stone on the homeschool days, students are able study the language(s) of their choice from Kindergarten to 4th grade. Students are encourage to study languages uniquely different from English (i.e. Mandarin or Arabic) in these formative years since research indicates that auditory exposure to different languages at earlier ages enhances ones ability to make such sounds later in life. Studies suggest that it is difficult to pick up a language with sounds you were not exposed to in the elementary years.  Students may pursue other foreigh languages during this time as well. Students will be held accountable by LCCS for course pogression in one language.

Worship
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 

Each in-school day begins with worship class. The moral development and discipleship of the students is at the heart of the school’s vision, therefore teaching a biblical worldview and the heart of Christ through worship is a vital component of their school day.  LCCS uses Summit Minitries Building on the Rock curriculum for this purpose.

 Building on the Rock is the first fully integrated worldview and Bible survey course for elementary school students. This unique curriculum is designed to help younger students begin to formulate and relate learned Bible facts with a genuine Christian worldview. It is designed to help students interpret knowledge and build foundational beliefs and values from a Christian perspective. In an age of competing worldviews, this curriculum will help young students formulate a biblical perspective of the world so that they will reflect the Scriptures both in their thoughts and in their actions.

Building on the Rock includes six sections of study designed in a spiral sequence that effectively integrates both worldview and biblical content. Each grade level concentrates on one of the sections and either reviews or introduces the others. One incredible advantage of this design is that students who enter the curriculum at different grade levels can be easily included without having gone through the previous grades. Memory verses, activities, music, crafts and object lessons are incorporated to enhance the learning of biblical principles and character. Additional lessons are sent home during the week for optional participation by the families or use on homeschool days.

Deuteronomy 6:5-7 tells us "So love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and strength. Memorize His laws, and tell them to your children over and over again. Talk about them all the time, whether you are at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night or getting up in the morning". At LCCS, our heart is to see God’s character shine through our children and families so that a world that may not know God might come to know Him through our love...returning to a heart of worshipping Him with our lives!
