History


Lowcountry Christian Community School (LCCS) was first born in the hearts and prayers of four local families (the Comans, Isaacs, Miles and Niemers) who where seeking educational opportunities for their children that would enhance the moral training they were implementing at home. Dissatisfied with local schooling options, they investigated the community school concept and felt God’s call to create one in the Lowcountry. After 18 months of prayer, preparation and tremendous help from FamilyLife Community School in Florida, LCCS enrolled six eager students into its first kindergarten class in 2006. For the first year, Church of The Holy Cross in Daniel Island, SC graciously donated a room for our classroom. The Lord provided Mrs. Jennie Elverum, an experienced teacher and mature Christian, to pour knowledge into this future generation of learners. LCCS outgrew the precious little Holy Cross facility quickly and moved to Seacoast Church in Mt. Pleasant. While LCCS was not affiliated with Seacoast, they generously refurbished and gifted two rooms for LCCS school activities.

We enjoyed 3 years on Seacoast's campus until we outgrew our alotted space. Cokesbury United Methodist Church in North Charleston was God's answer, and in September 2010, LCCS moved to North Charleston. At the time the location seemed far, but now we see God's hand in it.  Dorchester Road's central location has made LCCS more feasible to families across Charleston. Enrollment has expanded to include families from all over the tri-county area. We are very grateful God continues to provide gifted teachers to love and pour into the children.  We are in awe of His provision and continue to seek His quidance. To God be the glory.

Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stand guard in vain. Psalm 127:1
