We have much to be thankful for at LCS. To date, LCS is one of the largest Christian Schools in BC operating two campuses with an enrolment of over 1,000 students.

We offer an extensive variety of programs integrated with a Christian perspective including a core academic program, athletics, fine arts, vocational, learning assistance, special education, grad transitions and international student programs.

Looking back, LCS has seen many changes over the years; the task of re-tooling and fine-tuning is never done. If we are serious, however, about our call to provide Christian education than we are also committed to on-going evaluation and review as well as future thinking. We must be always be asking ourselves, given all that God has blessed us with, how we might do things better and/or differently so that the education offered at LCS remains true to its mission and vision and faithful to God and his redemptive work in this world. To that end, the Board has been devoting more time at monthly meetings discussing and thinking about strategic initiatives.

We believe that the Board must play a significant role in planning for the future of LCS. The Board along with Henry Vanderveen, has begun a process of developing a strategic plan that will ensure that LCS continues to provide relevant and distinctive Christian education not only in today's world, but in a world that few of us can imagine.

Without God's faithfulness and your commitment to the school's existence, LCS would not have a 55 year legacy of providing Christian education in the greater Langley area. The Board celebrates what God has done through LCS and looks forward to God's favour as we anticipate our development over the next several years.
