Philosophy

Lenawee Christian School is a non-denominational, coeducational institution, preschool through grade twelve. The school is committed to the historic Christian perspective of life as set forth in the Bible, recognizing God as the Creator of all things, the Son of God as Savior of all who believe in Him, and the Holy Spirit as the Comforter and Convictor of all who believe in Him.

 

Lenawee Christian School is committed to the Judeo-Christian ethic and holds that the knowledge of God is the beginning of wisdom; that the Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God; that fellowship with God is the true basis for fellowship with one another; that each student is uniquely created by God and is endowed with particular talents. Therefore, the aim of our Christian school, functioning as an extension of the home, is to nurture each student in his or her development as a whole person: spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially, providing the opportunity to educate for eternity (2 Tim. 3:16-17) as we seek to see them grow toward maturity in Jesus Christ (Col. 1:28-29.)

Purpose and Objectives

The purpose of Lenawee Christian School (LCS) is to provide a learning environment centered around the Christian philosophy of the Lordship of Christ. In this atmosphere students can develop their intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social potential to the end that their lives will glorify God. Therefore, the school endeavors in every way to ensure that it offers a quality educational program thoroughly integrated with the truth as revealed in the Word of God.
