Welcome Letter

Growing Christian Leaders - What a lofty goal LWCS has pursued for nearly 60 years!  At the high school level, we have the opportunity of preparing those leaders to launch out into adulthood by focusing on four critical areas of student development.

LWCS students are challenged to pursue excellence in their Christian faith.  Through integrating the Biblical worldview in every class, engaging chapels, close-knit small groups, service projects, and extracurricular activities led by Christian coaches and mentors, students have the opportunity to see the Chrstian life lived out before them and are nurtured to grow in their own walk.      

LWCS students are challenged to pursue excellence in the classroom.  Our teachers are an amazing group of highly qualified professionals who are passionate about Christ, passionate about your children, passionate about their content areas, and passionate about their craft.  Our classrooms are focused and conducive to learning and our course offerings, curriculum, and technology integration are at the forefront of the field.    

LWCS students are challenged to pursue excellence in being self-reflective.  The Bible implores all individuals to live a life of purpose and substance. During students' four years in high school they will be asked to wrestle with challenging questions such as “Does God exist?”, “What is my purpose in life?”, “How does my purpose connect with my vocational pursuits?”, and “How do I secure stable social relationships?”, to list a few.                               

LWCS students are challenged to develop into leaders within their community.  While LWCS has been developing Christian leaders for nearly six decades, we are upping our commitment to the cause by offering a cutting edge leadership program that provides over 50 hours of leadership training to participating students per year, opportunities for students to grow outside of the classroom by progressing through strategic competencies, gain hands-on experience by holding leadership positions through our numerous extracurricular offerings, and demonstrate mastery through a capstone project.    

Impacting families, churches, the marketplace, communities, and the world for Christ is a Biblical imperative.  LWCS students are afforded the opportunity to grow into individuals who are capable of those very things. We are thankful that you have chosen to partner with us during these critical years of development.     


Blessings,

Zack Wingate

HIGH School Program

LWCS offers a comprehensive and focused curriculum taught by quality educators from a distinctly Christian perspective within the context of a safe and supportive community. Students are challenged to not only learn the material, but to evaluate it through the lens of Scripture and reason. On campus, students have access to Christian mentors who can help guide them through the challenging waters of adolescence and assist them in becoming well-adjusted young adults. Our core curriculum of English, Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies/Humanities, coupled with our Fine Arts, Foreign Language, Physical Education, Elective, and Extracurricular options allow students to lay a solid foundation for success in all areas of life at the next level; success is what our alumni are achieving. Nearly all of our graduates (98%) go on to attend four year institutions of higher learning, and the vast majority of them are accepted to their top choice. Our SAT and ACT scores are above Florida averages year after year. Our pass rate for AP exams attempted are up to 30 percentage points higher than the national average, and all of our students who undertook college-level coursework through our dual enrollment program excelled-- we had a 100% pass rate for all classes taken in 2018-2019 with the overwhelming majority of students making A’s. Our students are afforded an amazing education at LWCS, and it shows.

Music Performance ClAsses

The Fine Arts department at Lake Worth Christian School offers performance based classes in both vocal and instrumental education. Recognizing that talent is a gift from God, students are encouraged to develop those talents through participation in music classes. Instrumental music classes offered are Beginning and Advanced band for 6th grade students and Concert Band for 7th-12th grade students. Through mandatory participation in one of the Sixth grade bands, students are able to discover and develop their instrumental music skills on their chosen instrument in addition to studying elements of formal music theory. Students in the 7th-12th are given the opportunity to further develop their skills through a wide range of musical styles. Concert Chorus is offered to students in the 7th-12th grades. Students will focus on developing their vocal skills by studying a wide repertoire of significant vocal literature. Jubilate, our auditioned show choir, is selected from Concert Chorus members in the 9th-12th grades. The show choir meets weekly as an extracurricular activity.


Jubilate

Jubilate is an auditioned show choir that is comprised of 9th-12th grade students who are members of the Concert Chorus. The group consists of 17-22 male and female students who have a desire to further develop their God-given musical talents through participation in this extracurricular activity. They perform a wide variety of music, but primarily focus on choreographed musical numbers. The group performs at various community events and each Spring is privileged to participate in a national adjudication festival or performance tour. Past trips have included performance tours of Italy and Hawaii and national competitions in San Francisco, Colorado Springs, Toronto, Boston, Myrtle Beach, Atlanta, and Orlando. The group is privileged to represent Lake Worth Christian School through various events.


Drama Class

All students in the 9th-12th grades at Lake Worth Christian School are eligible to choose drama as an elective. Students will explore a wide variety of the many performance elements of theater arts including monologue, duet acting, ensemble acting, and pantomime. Additionally, students will participate in units focused on set design, set construction, costume design, and construction, as well as filmmaking and digital editing. Students work in a cooperative setting allowing for maximum skill development and overall learning and understanding.
