Lancaster County Christian School is the result of a merger between Lancaster Christian School and Living Word Academy for the 2010-2011 school year. Combined, Lancaster County Christian School holds 83 years of experience in Christian education in Lancaster County.
Lancaster Christian School was founded in 1954 by parents whose children later attended the school. Lancaster Christian School fostered Christ-centered learning, with representation from approximately 70 evangelical churches. Living Word Academy began as a K-6 school in 1981. By 1988, the school had developed grades K-12, and the first graduating class commenced.
LCCS students will encounter the Living God through the Living Curriculum which prepares them for Living Life. This school will provide outstanding opportunities in Academics, Arts, Athletics, and Assisted Learning.
Lancaster County Christian School will introduce an alternative solution for parents desiring both the gift of time with their children and the services of a Christian school! This additional and cost-effective program is called the University-Model School® (UMS), and it opens at the LCCS West Lampeter Campus in the fall of 2012. Sharing the mission of Living Education at LCCS, the University-Model School® was developed to preserve and strengthen the God-ordained family relationship and achieve a high degree of academic excellence.
