This school year started off with a bit of uncertainty for everyone. Whether your child is learning at home, in a physical classroom, or through a hybrid model, you, like many parents, are navigating a variety of new challenges. You may even be feeling like your child is falling behind academically, socially, or spiritually.
Families are pursuing private school options now more than ever and realizing that education is one of the most important investments they can make in their child’s life. While switching schools may bring a little anxiety for parents and students alike, the results of finding the right fit are life-changing.
Here are a few good reasons to think about making a switch.
Your child needs a greater level of individual attention.
If your student could benefit from more personalized support from his or her teacher, you’re not alone. Many families inquire about Lenawee Christian School because we are known for small class sizes and a high level of individualized attention. We carefully assess learning styles and cater our approach to help students experience success.
COVID challenges are preventing your child from reaching his/her potential.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, every school has had to make adjustments. The reality is, things are a little more complicated than they were before, but no student’s education should be compromised. If your child is struggling academically this year, we’d love to share more about how we are prioritizing both student success and safety in a safe and nurturing environment.
“As a family who homeschooled their children for the majority of their education, transitioning into traditional education at LCS was the best decision we could have made.
The admissions team, staff, faculty, and every one of their classmates worked together to not only help our kids feel welcome, but also to adjust to the differences in traditional education. Despite never having the opportunity to engage in organized sports and drama, when our children tried out for different extracurricular activities, their coaches went above and beyond to welcome, encourage, and develop the abilities in our children.
Scholastically they have thrived in the classroom environment; ease of communication with their teachers empowers us as parents to remain closely involved in our children’s education. While we strongly value the homeschool education we were able to provide for our children, LCS has helped them take the next step in their educational and social development.”
— Steve Kuiper, LCS Parent of middle and high school students
You’re moving and looking for a great fit close to home.
We love meeting families who are planning a move, or have recently moved to the Adrian area! Relocation is a common reason for switching schools, and finding the right fit can help your family establish meaningful connections and build lasting friendships.
You are worried about your child’s social and emotional growth.
Social issues often prompt parents to search for a better environment for their child. Issues like a negative culture, a lack of inclusivity, or bullying can take a toll on a child of any age. Today, some parents may simply feel their child is not getting enough social interaction. Whatever the challenge, we would love to share more about the positive community that exists at Lenawee Christian.
Safety is a concern.
Every parent deserves peace of mind that their child is safe while at school. If you are concerned about your child’s physical or emotional safety, you can take comfort in the numerous preventive measures LCS has in place. Campus security, hygiene, digital safety, and socio-emotional health are top priorities.
Your current school is not very flexible when it comes to meeting families where they are.
When it comes to education in the time of COVID-19, it’s important that a school can be flexible enough to accommodate every family’s unique circumstances. If any LCS student needs to work from home for a time due to illness or exposure, we provide all the resources and support needed to ensure they don’t fall behind.
You are looking for a school that more closely aligns with your family values.
If what is being taught at home and school do not align, it is very difficult for families to play an active role in their child’s education. At Lenawee Christian School, biblical truth is woven into every subject area, and students benefit from a variety of strong Christian mentors in their classrooms and extracurricular activities.
Whether your struggle is on this list or not, we’d love to hear more about why you’re considering a switch and the goals you have for your child. LCS offers year-round admissions, and our enrollment process can be completed in a single business day.
