Traditional Education Model
Traditional Elementary School
The Lancaster County Christian School Traditional elementary grades provide a solid, academic program to students in a nurturing Christian environment where they are free to be the unique individuals that God has made them. Our team of teachers is committed to personal growth and high standards, while providing students individual attention that enables them to meet their greatest potential. We offer a differentiated program that is designed to meet the needs of students with varying abilities and strengths. Biblical principles are integrated into all subjects, while fostering a spirit-led approach to life. Emphasis is placed on character development that is practical and pertinent to daily living. Students are taught how to question and to think as an approach to learning.
Traditional Middle School
The Traditional middle school program is designed to help in-betweenagers during this time of great change. Teachers address spiritual, social, emotional, and physical development of students and successfully transition them from a self-contained fifth grade classroom and give them the tools to be prepared for the growing independence that awaits them in high school.
The intellectual changes that occur during these transitional years enable students to reason at a deeper level and consequently begin to question many things that they have been taught during their childhood. Students seek to understand the "why" of matter previously accepted without question and are able to critically think about issues. During these transitional years, it is essential to provide solid Biblical teaching to help students to develop their own beliefs and values based on a Biblical worldview.
Traditional High School
The Traditional high school academic program at Lancaster County Christian School presents levels of instruction that are appropriate for the college-bound student, the general high school student, and the vocational student. The courses offered within the core academic subjects (Bible, Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and World Languages) present instruction at varied levels and the elective courses are of an intentionally broad scope that addresses a variety of student talents and interests. This breadth of curriculum is reflective of the school's mission to graduate 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.
Students who wish to take honors or advanced placement courses must have a solid B average in their prior class and teacher recommendation. Students who enroll in honors and advanced placement English classes have required summer reading assignments. These required readings help the student to see what will be expected of them in these challenging courses. They also help the teacher to see the level that each student is at upon entrance into the course.
