We have had our children enrolled at LACS over the past 11 years. We feel fortunate to have this school available to us for the education of our 3 children. The teachers are highly committed to each student in small classroom settings which paves the way for academic and social success. In fact, many of the students at LACS score way above average on standardized tests. In addition, there are some great extra-curricular activities available to students including sports, art, drama, and more. Parents are encouraged to be active in the life of the school and in the education of their children through an active volunteer program. Our ideas are welcome. I can't say enough for the Christian philosophy of this school which is a backdrop for all that transpires.

We are more than pleased with Lake Area Christian School. Some advantages of LACS are the Christ- centered education, small classroom size, loving Christian teachers and administration, and an awesome curriculum! There is great parent involvement in and around the school. We have a daughter in 2nd grade and a son in Pre-K. They both love the school and their teachers. We drive 20 minutes each direction to take our children to LACS and it is worth every minute.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
