I have graduated from this school, as well as many close family members, and both of my children are currently thriving at LCS. I love the community/family atmosphere, but the best thing about LCS is the way that every experience points to Christ. My children are growing spiritually, and they are getting a great (grade A) education. There are a few families who cannot be pleased, and that is unfortunate. But the experiences of three generations of my family are excellent. I will happily continue to forfeit driving a new car so that I can afford for my children to be encouraged to follow Jesus.

We have had children at this school for 9 years. Our oldest is heading into a very large public high school. I have no doubt that he is prepared emotionally, academically, and spiritually. He knows he will face a lot of new situations, and we talk openly about those issues. He will be enrolling in Honor's level classes at the recommendation of the school he will be attending based on test scores and interviews. The teachers have done a great job of helping to grow academically and spiritually.

As a graduate whose parents, siblings, many cousins, aunts, uncles, & a grandparent attended LCS, I was confident in my decision to enroll my daughter! We've had a wonderful experience thus far and look forward to the next 3 years! In a fallen world, expecting perfection from any school is setting yourself up for let down! We've had some hiccups but that's expected. Each situation was resolved by open communication with the teachers and/or parents! It's so great to know that the staff and school community all have the same awareness and love for Jesus!

my favorite aspect about the teachers at LCS is their love for Christ and the creative ways they bring Him into all aspects of education as is His due!

The teachers are super and very motivating. They love their students and are worthy of high praise. LCS teachers go above and beyond in and out of the classroom. Parents are encouraged to be involved and the administration is very approachable. Things work well and families get out of this school everything they put into it. A fine school and a school that is Christ centered for sure. Good academics, good character building, and great opportunity for educational, personal, and spiritual growth.

There is something fundamentally wrong with this school and the administration; a red flag when the principal doesn't meet new/prospective families. Many teachers are caring but there are some who have little grace, love or understanding of anything outside of their little world. Parent involvement is expected but parents who question are not welcome. Another red flag is when a teacher fails to mention anything faith-based in her welcome letter. It's probably an ok school for preschool through early elementary when Christian parents are seeking that sheltered education, but academics, music and sports are below average and area schools (late elementary and middle) are just as good if not better, especially West Lafayette. Save your money, time and frustration and look elsewhere. There are many good churches in the area and caring, Christian teachers in the public schools. If you're sure about attending here, ask about retention rates, especially in the middle school grades, talk to families (not the ones they refer), and do your homework.

It is a great school! Kind and caring individuals work here who are helping children learn about Jesus and all the things needed for each grade level. Parental involvement is highly encouraged and welcomed.

Lafayette Christian has gave my son a place to feel safe and a place to grow. He has some emotional issues that make it hard for him sometimes and his teachers have been so amazing and understanding. The Christian values that are taught are invaluable to him and us as a family. He is treated with genuine love and kindness. They work closely with us as parents to give what is best to our children. I am very thankful for having the choice to send him there.

Lafayette Christian School is the best place for my children! They are learning more about God and their place in his world every day. I am grateful for dedicated teachers who care about each individual and help each child to discern and achieve the great things that God has in store for them. My children are gaining a foundation that will last the rest of their lives, to the glory of God!

The teachers are engaged and caring. If you want great academics and a Christ centered environment, this is the school for you. We enjoy the "homey" atmosphere and the involvement of all the parents. If parents don't want to volunteer and be part of the school, they may not enjoy LCS. Youth will be prepared to go into local High Schools and be a light for Christ when they finish here. If you worry about your child's academics, then get them in this school for Kindergarten through Eighth grade. Engaged, caring, supportive, and a Christ centered environment!!!

We LOVE Lafayette Christian School for so many reasons! The individualized attention that each child receives is phenomenal and made possible by the small class sizes. It is so comforting to leave my child in a place where the teachers pick up where we left off when we drop her off. She is getting a fantastic academic education, which is built on a foundation of God's Word. I like that she has memorized so many Bible verses, but I LOVE that she applies it to her life at home. I really appreciate how much the teachers and administration encourage parent envolvement...it is truly a community on it's own. I can't recommend this school highly enough!

We love Lafayette Christian School! The teachers take the time to know the kids and provide them with the education they specifically need to move past where they started from. Our 3 kids have all grown both spiritually and intellectually.

Both our kids have attended LCS since pre-school (...and are still students there.)It has been a wonderful experience both academically, spiritually and socially. It's a place where it is cool to be smart, but there are also great programs for those who struggle...including an Essentials Learning Lab, GLASS Programs, Dyslexia Institute plus extra time from teachers when needed. The staff is outstanding and very accessible and has my child's best interests at heart...without a doubt. Spiritually, each class is taught from a Biblical perspective without including denomination-specific doctrine. Each day begins and ends with prayer and weekly chapels are attended by everyone. Once each month chapel is conducted by one of the grades...it is neat to see the insights of God's children in this venue. Socially, my kids have made great friends and I know that their interactions are monitored so that they can develop Christian behaviors in this area as well...plus we, as parents, have made wonderful friendships by being able to involve ourselves in the various school activities as well. If you are considering a Christian education for your child, you need to stop by and observe all the great things happening at LCS...you won't be disappointed

Lafayette Christian School is an outstanding school. Academically it is the best overall in the county and one of the best in the state. The music program wins the top awards at competition every year. A variety of sports and other extra-curricular are offered and are also excellent. The teachers are especially exceptional. It is a parent-run school which lends to its family feel. Lafayette Christian fulfills it's motto: Excellence in Education; Centered in Christ.

We have sent all 3 of our children to LCS and 1 is still attending. It's great to have a learning enviroment with educational excellance,in a spiritual atomsphere. Our school has produced many valeditorians in H. S. as well as well balenced mature young people in the community. The teachers are incredible. Their dedication and care to our students is un rivaled. The networking of this parent run school is awesome. We really didn't see the impact until our boys went to public H.S. It has been well worth the money and time we have invested in helping at the school. We wholeheartily endorse this school to anyone considering a private education for their children in the Lafayette area.
