Lancaster County Christian School graduates followers of Jesus Christ who are skilled in Biblical scholarship and its integration into academics, the arts, athletics and community; who are prepared for their vocation and higher education; and who reflect His image in life.


Culture of Honor

"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves." -Romans 12:10

At LCCS we endeavor to be grounded in honoring God first, then, as a result, honoring and respecting one another in the way we talk and treat one another. We are committed to being a place where every student and individual is respected, and we all demonstrate God's love as we honor Him and care for others. May God do a work in all of us as we pursue His heart for others.


Pillars of Excellence

1. Biblically Centered - Students are equipped with the skills and knowledge to interpret and respond to all of life's experiences through the lens of Scripture.

2. Academically Driven - Students are challenged to develop their God-given intellect to its fullest in order to fulfill their God-ordained destiny for His glory.

3. Individually Focused - Students are encouraged to celebrate their God-given gifts and abilities in an environment where they can excel and develop into the person God desires them to be.

4. Outreach Oriented - Students strive for an understanding and commitment that their whole purpose in life is to love God and serve others, remaining faithful to that which God has called them to do.



Lancaster County Christian School's values and heritage were established long ago as Lancaster Christian School (founded in 1954) and Living Word Academy (founded in 1981). These two outstanding schools merged in 2010 to become Lancaster County Christian School. LCCS has continued this God-honoring, Christian education with more than 90 combined years of bountiful heritage.
