  • The best thing about LCS is our people, the warm community and commitment of our students and staff.
  • These elements lie at the core of a LCS education and the "pride of school" radiates from so many who have experiences here.
  • Our beautiful campus, a fantastic 315-acre outdoor classroom with a lake, fields, forests and small residences, enhances this pride.
  • It doesn`t feel like a school at all.
  • Yet, our graduates receive offers of admission to exceptional universities around the world, following their passion in a variety of fields.
