Landmark Christian School

     Quality, Christian Education

 

The Landmark Christian School is a private Christian school offering K4 through 12th grade. It began in __?__ as a result of the burden of Pastor Jim Sumpter and the Landmark Baptist Church to provide quality education with a Bible basis to the children of LBC and the community.  It has remained a place that not only provides opportunities for a strong, solid education, but also has provided a haven for young people as they grow and mature in the things of the Lord. We seek to help students set the highest goals for their lives mentally, physically, and spiritually.

LCS is an education ministry of Landmark Baptist Church. The school is supported spiritually and financially by the giving members of this local church. All of the LCS teachers are active members of Landmark Baptist Church and are seeking to use their natural and developed gifts in the lives of each of their students.

The traditional classroom is the basis of preschool K-4 through 12th grade instruction. Thorough study of fundamental principles in all subjects is emphasized with curriculum materials including those from ABeka and Bob Jones University Press.

The school  is a member of the Old Dominion Association of Christian Schools (ODACS), as well as a member of the American Association of Christian School (AACS).

We offer a full range of music instruction starting in the upper elementary classes including choirs and bands, and some of our teachers are advanced instructors in private lessons.

A competitive sports program is available for 7th -12th grades that includes girls’ volleyball, basketball, and cheerleading and boys’ soccer and basketball. A spring track and field program is also available for 4-12th grade. We compete against other ODACS schools which makes games competitive and gives everyone the opportunity to learn and develope.

LCS also competes in the ODACS and AACS regional, state, and national Bible and Fine Art Competitions. Recent success from LCS includes state victory and national competitions in speech, testing, piano, organ, vocal solo, and high-school choir. In 2012, LCS finished the Fine Arts competition ranked third in the state of Virginia.

We seek to provide adequate facilities with spacious classrooms, clean cafeterias, safe gymnasium, sports fields and playground, two age appropriate libraries, and computer and science labs. We feel that you will find our school comparable to some of the best schools around!

Our goal is to support the family’s endeavor to foster strong Christian character. Jesus Christ is the basis of our standard and expectations. The Bible and prayer are central themes in the classroom throughout the day. Bible classes and chapels emphasize Biblical teachings and principles to students on every level. Gospel centeredness, truth, kindness, modesty, decency, and good manners are taught and expected in the life of every student. We regulate dress by a dress code and strictly prohibit all inappropriate worldly lifestyle and material including vulgar language, “rated R” materials, rap, rock, and pop styled music, and any form of indecency.

Landmark Christian School is dedicated to helping families train a new generation of strong Christian disciples, and helping students become strong leaders in their country, communities, and families. We thank you for your consideration and pray that God’s favor will bring your students our direction.

We ask that all prospective families read the LCS Student Handbook before beginning the application process. We believe that cooperation from home is vital to the education process. After reading this material, there is a basic application form that can be picked up from the school office or downloaded online. Upon completing the application form, a testing date will be scheduled for the student. This testing process will evaluate the student’s advancement based on age and grade level, and help with acceptance and placement in the school.

You may view the school during normal office hours. A tour will be given of the principle or an administrator. We ask that you schedule tour appointments ahead of time through the school office.
