Middle School & High School
“We will not hide these truths from our children but will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord. We will tell of his power and the mighty miracles he did. So each generation can set its hope anew on God, remembering his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.” Psalm 78:4,7
Philosophy and Commitment
At Life Christian School, we believe that we have a responsibility to God and our families to provide a safe environment for your child where they will be nurtured, encouraged, and loved. We also believe that every child is a gift from God, and that He has ordained their life. The Lord has equipped each student with special talents, gifts, and strengths, and our teachers will partner with you in discovering and encouraging these qualities in your child.
A TIME OF TRANSITION
At LCS sixth graders are leaving elementary school and are learning to work with a variety of teachers. Seventh graders are beginning to learn who they are and what they can be in God’s kingdom. Eighth graders are becoming high school students ready to prepare for college and to impact their community. They are encouraged to exercise their giftings in a variety of ways. Students are provided with individualized, student centered educations that enable them to work with peers to collaboratively explore topics of interest and express their learning in a variety of ways.
When students step into the 6th grade they begin to spread their wings on campus. The 6th graders are learning to move from class to class through their day and exercise their use of time in passing periods. The students are given a locker to share with a fellow classmate that allows them to learn the responsibility and operation of a locker as a team. Their lockers become their home base as they no longer have their own desk and classroom. Our 6th graders participate in Secondary Chapel where they come together with their peers to hear, experience and worship our Savior. One of the great highlights of 6th grade is attending a 3-day/2-night outdoor school experience during the spring.
Middle School is truly mirrored in our 7th grade. Each 7th grader receives a locker of their own. Their lockers become an extension of their classroom housing all of their daily supplies. They participate in Secondary Chapel and are encouraged to try-out and serve on the high school worship team. Our middle school students are also given the opportunity to serve the school, church and community through our mission programs and leadership class.
8th graders are beginning to look less like children and more like high school students. They begin to model high school actions and responsibilities. Leadership and giftings have emerged and the typical 8th grader is beginning to purposefully use those fledgling gifts in chapel as well as stepping into leadership roles in our sports, fine arts, and Christian Service activities. As the middle school transition comes to a close, the 8th graders participate in the 8th grade promotion ceremony where they are officially recognized as “trained” for high school.
At Life Christian School, we are serious about providing the highest level of academics in a Christ-centered environment. The SAT scores at the school are indicative of rigorous academic study.
SCHEDULE AND COURSES
High school students begin school at 8:15 and end the school day at 3:00. The following requirements provide a course model for planning as students prepare for college. Some particular areas such as math, foreign language, fine arts, and P.E. may be adjusted due to student ability, staffing constraints, scheduling, etc. We also have AP classes in various subjects depending on student progression and desire.
Each year students will participate in the Missions Week. This is a vital part of our school’s mission and purpose to prepare dedicated young Christians.
