Our Christian beliefs and principles permeate everything we do at Lake Country Lutheran High School - from our scripture courses and chapel services to our mainstream curriculum and co-curricular programs. Our staff will seek opportunities to share the presence and power of Jesus Christ at work in our daily lives as Christians.
The staff continually strives to encourage and support Biblically based values, morals and ethics in all formal and informal contacts with students. LCL students are encouraged to stand out and be different amongst their peers, not because of their appearance or possessions, but rather because of whom they represent as a chosen child of God. Emphasis is placed on appropriate, respectful and dignified relationships with other students as well as with faculty and staff.
The manner in which we conduct our day-to-day operations is reflective of our commitment to excellence in all facets of becoming a productive, Christ-centered person.
The best way to understand why we have chapel twice a week and a Christ-centered school is to experience it. Hear from our Director of Spiritual Life, Mr. Mark Newman as he shares a chapel message to our school community in May 2020.
You can find more of these videos and messages on our YouTube Channel.
We encourage you to visit on a chapel or LIFT day!
We believe in the inerrancy of the Scripture and the literal interpretation of God's Word as it applies to our lives in service to others.
Our commitment to others is marked by care, dignity, humility, integrity, and the application of Grace as we build meaningful life-long connections with one another.
We aspire for integrations which are honest, respectful, clear, consistent, and timely, where expectations and accountability are embraced.
An attitude of continuous improvement and the pursuit of excellence allows each individual to maximize opportunities that use God-given talents for the benefit of others.
We strive to emulate Jesus' love for others in all situations, evidenced by unconditional care, compassion, joy, and passion.
