Our Mission

The mission of Lake Worth Christian School is to serve the Christian community by providing quality education based on a Biblical perspective and to nurture students to grow in knowledge, conviction, and maturity in the faith, living as servants within the community and reconciling all relationships to Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Lake Worth Christian School

Thank you for taking the time to explore the opportunity your child has at LWCS to receive a great Christian education – where our vision is “Growing Christian Leaders.”

As an educational institution, we are committed to providing the best academic experience possible, preparing students for a lifetime of learning. We want them to understand that they were created with a purpose, and we are here to help them to fulfill that purpose. Lake Worth Christian School has been doing this successfully since 1959. Our graduates go on to some of the best colleges and universities, which have led them to fantastic careers.

We are “Growing Christian Leaders” by teaching each class from a Christian perspective, hiring and training master teachers, being attentive to the current trends in education, integrating the latest technology, teaching students the importance of serving others, and providing outstanding facilities for learning and activities that also prioritize your child’s safety. We utilize all of the resources God has blessed us with to empower your child to be everything God wants them to be.

For all of us, raising our children is the most important thing we will ever do. My wife, Summer, and I are aware of the Christian school options available for our four small children. Lake Worth Christian School provides the best overall opportunity for our children to succeed from their early years of development, in preschool, through their high school graduation.  We know they will grow here academically, spiritually, athletically, and socially. Add to this the warm community at LWC, and there is no place else we’d rather be.

Our History

In 1959, the founders of Lake Worth Christian believed it was important to teach children that every area of life belongs to the Lord.  We are thankful for a rich history of people who take ownership in Lake Worth Christian School.

The programs at Lake Worth Christian School seek to fulfill the mission of equipping students with knowledge and wisdom for a life in service in God's kingdom.  Our program integrates faith and academics from Pre-K to grade 12.

Lake Worth Christian School has graduated over 1,400 students at the elementary or secondary school level.  In the last number of years, 98% of our graduates from secondary school have continued their studies at a university or college.  Our Graduates have pursued various professional careers and many serve as volunteers in their communities.

Our Philosophy

Lake Worth Christian School is a necessary and joyful means to bring glory and honor to God in response to His mercy to His people. The school is necessary because education is essential for effective obedience to God's will; it is joyful because as God's children we individually and communally serve, explore, participate, and delight in His creation.

Every human has a perspective of world-view that directs and empowers the way he speaks, acts, and lives. The educational perspective of Lake Worth Christian School is based on the authority of the Bible as the written Word of God. In our understanding of the Bible, we find help and direction in the Reformed heritage and confessional standards. The school recognizes that Christians adhere to a variety of confessional standards and it actively support interdenominational ministry by helping all Christian parents in their efforts to lead their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

One way to summarize the philosophy of Lake Worth Christian School is to understand the relationships between the individual and God, the individual and self, the individual and other human beings, and the individual and all other aspects of God's creation. The purpose of Lake Worth Christian school is to train the student to live and respond to these relationships as commanded in God's Word.

In creation these relationships were established to bring honor and glory to God. Man, created in the image of God, is given special responsibility to be God's representative to insure that his life and all of his relationships are consistent with the ideas God has established. Man has a special role as steward in subduing, controlling, and preserving the earth.

All of the ideal relationships however were distorted when man willfully rejected his assigned place and attempted to build his own kingdom. In spite of man's response, God provided through the atonement of Jesus Christ the means of restoring the relationships. Men are free in thankful response to serve God as sovereign Lord, to love and respect themselves as God's image bearers and to love their neighbors.

We are called as Christians to grow in maturity in Jesus Christ, to be knowledgeable about our faith, to stand firm in our convictions, to live as servants within community, and to work toward reconciling all things and relationships to Jesus Christ. The home has the primary responsibility for the children and is the children's primary source of nurture and guidance. The school serves as an extension of the home. The Christian parent, as a member of the body of Christ, seeks family growth in faith and practice with regular and active involvement in a local Christian church.

Our Curriculum

Lake Worth Christian School teaches an advanced curriculum from a Christian perspective. Textbooks are one tool we use, and we make textbook selections annually, based on a rotating cycle. We choose the best textbooks available and our teachers integrate the Christian perspective into all of their courses.  Websites are another frequently used tool, and all classrooms come equipped with an internet projection unit so teachers are free to teach from websites they find useful. 

Why send your children to Lake Worth Christian School?

It is our commitment as parents to find the best way to help our children grow to be mature.  We want our children to trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord, to be seasoned as salt and shine as light in the world.

We want our children to be of service, not just to survive in the world, but to be leaders who help transform the world.  As part of that commitment, we send our children to Lake Worth Christian School.
