Live Purposefully.The LCS K-12 LEARNER PROFILE
Choosing your child’s school is an important decision
Schools are one of the most critical influences in our children’s lives. Schools shape youth health, identity, values, what one worships, and whether one develops the crucial building blocks needed to thrive as learners.
British Columbia is known globally for good community-based schools in one of the world’s best performing school systems. There are several schools of choice with great kids and motivated parents and caregivers seeking the best for their children – just like you. Let us help you make a prayerful, informed decision about your child’s future.

WHAT MAKES LCS DIFFERENT?
Core Features of our K-12 program
What separates us from other options is who we are, how we teach and the values we build our curriculum upon. We strive every day to walk worthy of our calling to provide a distinctively Christian education, rooted in inclusive and shared values and implementing the best of what we know works to provide a quality, impactful education.
Our K-12 Learner Attributes Profile guides us to provide every graduate with opportunities to explore the three most important questions in life: Who is God? Who am I? What is my purpose? In an increasingly complex world with many different voices telling them who they should be, our approach to teaching and learning is designed to equip students for a changing world, and find their anchor and hope in what the Bible teaches about their identity and purpose.
Study after study of thousands of schools tells us that the best schools are those where there is a strong sense of shared values, and beliefs, reinforced by a strong educational mission, a sense of community and trust, and a whole staff commitment to ongoing professional growth and learning. No other school of choice in our region offers what your family will experience at our schools.
CONNECTION & BELONGING
With smaller than average class sizes, a middle school of just over 300 students and a high school of just over 400, we are big enough to offer excellent programs and experiences, yet small enough that every child is known and connected.
The LCS Bible Curriculum is designed to foster the competences captured in our K-12 Learner Profile, and integrate Christian thinking and values into our core subjects and extra-curricular experiences. Our teaching practices reflect our values.
We ensure that every child is equipped to learn the foundational competencies they need to thrive as learners – literacy, numeracy, wellness, discernment & creative thinking. We believe every child can achieve success as a learner.
EDUCATION WITH IMPACT
Our K-12 Instructional Guidelines are our guarantee that in every classroom, every day, our students are learning though differentiated, evidence-based teaching practices aligned with what we know about how God designed us all to be curious learners.
INNOVATION & CREATIVITY
Our Impact & Innovation Fund supported by the generosity of our community puts tools in the hands of staff and students to ensure we offer innovative, entrepreneurial, creative and impactful learning experiences for all K-12 students.
LCS offers a range of hands-on, minds-on STEM learning experiences in sciences; trades, technology and computing; engineering; creative arts; media; mathematics. Our program has something engaging for the full range of learners at LCS.
CONNECTING STUDENTS TO PASSIONATE EDUCATORS
What separates us from other options in this community is that we are committed to putting students in relationship with outstanding Christian leaders and mentors who work in partnerships with the community, parents, alumni and local churches – people who are passionate about their profession and believe their purpose is to equip children to live fully into the potential that God has placed in them. We are committed to professional learning, using the most effective practices and teaching the way we know God has designed all children to learn, thrive and grow.
…today, the world needs future-focused, engaged, faithful Christian education more than ever…
A FUTURE FOCUSED K-12 EDUCATION
In a future of accelerating social and technological change, our children need a school that securely anchors them in relationships rooted in timeless values, where they learn the habit of mind to make decisions and judgments from a Biblical perspective and flourish in what makes us truly human, individually unique and precious in the sight of a loving creator.
Today, the world needs future-focused, engaged, faithful Christian education more than ever before. A Christian learning community has never been more relevant as an environment to shape a new generation of young people, agents of change who are justice-seeking, discerning, inclusive, courageous, equipped and ready to have an impact for Christ.
A commitment to LCS is a commitment to building a better future for all of our communities.
