Welcome to Middle School Grades 6th - 8th
LCS middle school students gain real world-applicable skills and knowledge in conjunction with advanced academic concepts. Students learn how to properly manage time, handle big feelings, develop communication skills and utilize their knowledge and talents to their maximum potential so society can have the next generation of athletes, politicians, teachers, bankers, healthcare workers, and Americans who voice opinions and enact positive progress while cherishing their values.
Students learn to respect an adult's authority while growing into their own critically-thinking person. Students learn they are responsible for their choices. Teachers and staff routinely talk deeply and frankly with students about the challenges they will face as young teens, about the importance of focused study and practice, about understanding the basis of the founding of the country and the Christian religion, as well as other world religions so they can actively and effectively contribute to society. LCS students learn to use their minds, respect others, be actively civically engaged, and one day nurture their own successful families.
