MISSION: To provide a biblically based K-8 school which partners with a community of likeminded families to foster moral and academic excellence, equipping our children to serve God, each other, and the community at large.

VISION:  
to send out disciples to positively influence the culture for Christ.   


It is our goal to spread God’s Word by strengthening the family unit so that the light of Jesus Christ can shine through our children and families.  We strive to follow Christ personally, live in love and community, and model God's design for the family to the rest of the world.

Through this gospel-based community and school, whose foundation of moral training first allows academic excellence to naturally follow, our children can excel to the best of their abilities and become strong Christian leaders of the future.

 

As a covenant community, LCCS and families  partner to uphold our core values:


CORE VALUES

  1. Submission to God: We, first and foremost, have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior and surrendered our lives to God and His gospel message. We seek God first as His word is perfect, serving as the authority for all actions and decisions in our lives and as the vessel through which we are sanctified.

 

  • Psalm 19:7-8  The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
  • 2 Timothy 3:14-17 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
  • Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
  • Deuteronomy 6:13 Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.

 

LCCS: LCCS board members, administrators and teachers submit to the Lord for guidance and direction in all planning and development.

 

  • Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
  • Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do and he will establish your plans.

 

Families: Each adult has fully surrendered to the Lord and is committed to growing spiritually through church attendance, bible study and small groups by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

 

  • Psalm 119:35 Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.
  • 2 Peter 3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  • Philippians 2:12-13 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

 

 

  1. Family Unity: We believe in God's design for the family, with the husband as the spiritual and directional head of the home. The strength of the family unit, with consistent application of fundamental biblical principles, and the commitment to a community of like-minded people that reinforce these principles, is fertile soil for spiritual, moral, and academic growth.

 

  • Ephesians 5:22-23 Wives, follow the lead of your husbands as you follow the Lord. The husband is the head of the wife, just as Christ is the head of the church.
  • 1 Timothy 3:4-5 He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect. If anyone does not know how to manage his own family, how can he take care of God’s church?

 

  • Acts 10:2 He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly.
  • Proverbs 31

LCCS: Respects the family unit by not over-scheduling meetings or activities which draw us away from the family. Two days a week of home school allow for more family time than traditional school models. Teachers will guide and direct the moral behavior of students in class, but discipline is the responsibility of the parents at home.

 

Parents: The husband is the spiritual head of the home, actively directing the spiritual growth of his household and pursuing activities to build family identity. He is intentionally purposeful in protecting, training and discipling his children.   

 

  1. Biblical Parenting: We are committed to raising our children according to God's word and the wisdom received by the Holy Spirit within and desire a likeminded support community. We have chosen Growing Families International's biblical parenting courses and materials (such as Growing Kids God's Way and Reflections of Moral Innocence) to ensure our likemindedness in the training and instruction of our children, but recognize that it is not doctrine.

 

  • Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go. When he is old, he will not turn away from it.
  • Deuteronomy 6:6-9 The commandments I give you today must be in your hearts.  Make sure your children learn them. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up. 8 Write them down and tie them on your hands as a reminder. Also tie them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the door frames of your houses. Also write them on your gates.
  • Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, don't make your children angry. Instead, train them and teach them the ways of the Lord as you raise them.

LCCS:  Provides a school environment which supports the biblical and moral training of the home. Virtues are upheld through the encouragement of Christian teachers and the use of a virtue card chart.

Parents: Seek the Lord in their parenting and work to apply biblical precepts and principles including the suggestions offered in GKGW. Parents will share parenting issues and seek wise counsel from the LCCS community. Parents pursue continual growth in their parenting abilities through classes and books, (particularly but not limited to GFI resources.)

 

  1. Academic Excellence: LCCS strives to provide an academic environment that is consistent with the biblical and moral training applied in our homes. Parents and teachers partner to academically equip every student to perform to the best of their ability.

 

  • Ephesians 5:21 Follow the lead of one another because of your respect for Christ.
  • 2 Corinthians 7:1 So let us make ourselves pure from everything that pollutes our bodies and spirits. Let us be completely holy. We want to honor God.
  • Galatians 6:9 Let us not become tired of doing good. At the right time we will gather a crop if we don't give up.
  • Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
  • 1 Corinthians10:31 So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
  • Proverbs 14:23 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.
  • Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the grave, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.
  • Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.

LCCS:  Seeks to find or create excellent curricula, encompassing as many learning styles as possible. Teachers commit to presenting information in a way that stimulates the most learning possible and honors the parent as teaching partner.

Parents: Commit to completing home school assignments in a timely manner with excellence, sharing best practices with other families, honoring the teacher as teaching partner.

 

  1. Community: We are committed to doing life together as a supportive and likeminded community. We believe discipleship is a purposeful priority requiring commitment and sacrifice. As iron sharpens iron, we believe that in community, we can disciple, encourage and help each other and also our children.

 

  • Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
  • Ephesians 4:15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
  • Phillipians 2:5-8 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death —even death on a cross!
  • Philippians 2:2-5 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
  • Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together. Some are in the habit of doing this. Instead, let us cheer each other up with words of hope. Let us do it all the more as you see the day coming when Christ will return.
  • Hebrews 12:14-15  Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy, without holiness no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.
  • Ephesians 4:3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
  • Romans 12:18  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
  • 1Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.

 

LCCS:  As the overseeing entity, LCCS provides opportunities for discipleship, fellowship, and service to one another with accountability.

 

Parents: True community only occurs with commitment, transparency and love. Parents make serving each other in and outside of the school a high priority. We commit to make room in our busy lives for each other and school functions. We seek opportunities to work, play, and grow together through meetings, serving, social outings and play dates. We treat and speak to each other with love, kindness and respect.

 

  1. Communication:  We openly and humbly follow God's word for communicating with each other. We speak truth in love, we vulnerably share our struggles, we humbly confront and graciously receive correction. We “take issues to our brother first,” sharing face to face, not gossiping. We use our tongues to build up not tear down.

 

  • Matthew 18:15-17 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.
  • Ephesians 4:15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
  • Ephesians 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

 

  • Ephesians 4:3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
  • Romans 12:18  If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

 

  • Philippians 2:4 None of you should look out just for your own good. You should also look out for the good of others.

LCCS:  Facilitates open communication with families, continually encouraging families and reminding them of the gospel-based vision and mission of the school.  

 

Parents: Practice obedience to the blessings of Spirit-led opportunities to speak truth to one another. As a community, we encouraging and edifying one another in love.  When necessary, after prayer and reflection, we take issues to our brothers and sisters in Christ humbly and graciously receive words brought to us.



  1. Service:  We show love for God by using the gifts He has given us by the power of the Holy Spirit to serve within the school and each other. The day to day operation of LCCS depends on the volunteer service of the families, from teaching in the classroom to curriculum research at home.

 

  • 1 Peter 4:10 Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.
  • Galatians 5:13 My brothers and sisters, you were chosen to be free. But don't use your freedom as an excuse to live in sin. Instead, serve one another in love.
  • Luke 22:27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
  • 1 Peter 5:5 Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."
  • Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
  • Matthew 5:37 "Just let your 'Yes' mean 'Yes.' Let your 'No' mean 'No.' Anything more than this comes from the evil one.
  • 2 Corinthians 9:7 You should each give what you have decided in your heart to give. You shouldn't give if you don't want to. You shouldn't give because you are forced to. God loves a cheerful giver.

 

LCCS:  organizes and communicates the staff and service needs of the school to families. Theses will include both in-classroom service opportunities (such as Mom of the Day or Dad's Chapel), and at home service tasks or committee needs (such as yearbook chairman,   lesson plan upload chairman).

 

Parents: Joyfully volunteer to assist in the achievement of LCCS needs and goals, whether it be serving in the school or at home, and take initiative without being asked when appropriate.
