Facility Expansion
The LCS Board of Trustees and New Building Task Force responded to the school’s steadily growing enrollment (36 percent in the past six years) and space constraints (using three portable classrooms) by hiring an architectural firm to explore options for expanding and renovating our facility. The school’s Society members then voted to go ahead with the construction project, which began in July 2009.

As we looked to the fall of the 2012-2013 school year, the need was evident that the 2nd floor must be completed and ready for student occupancy. The continued growth in student enrollment moving to the junior high classes, presented the immediate need to move to the 2nd floor to accommodate the educational needs of these students. God's blessings continue with our student enrollment. We took a step of faith and used the summer to finsh out this space, and our Jr. High students and staff were blessed to move into the finished second story on the first day of school, August 15, 2012.  We need your prayerful and financial support to complete the funding for the expansion of providing "Excellence in Education - Centered in Christ".
