GENERAL INFORMATION & ACADEMICS
Leesburg Christian School (LCS) was founded in 1969 to meet the educational needs of Loudoun County and surrounding areas. In 1988, LCS became a ministry of Believers Baptist Church; however, we are open to families of all backgrounds who want a Christian education for their children.
LCS has developed into an institution which strives for both educational excellence and sensitivity to those with special needs.
Our dedicated Christian faculty is well trained and has years of experience in working with students of all levels. We emphasize the core subjects - English, Math, Science, and History.
We also offer a variety of enrichment subjects, such as foreign language, chorus, computers, art, and band. Bible is a required class and is integrated into our curriculum. The majority of our curriculum is from Bob Jones University Press and A Beka Books; however, we use some texts from other companies including Saxon math for Advanced Math in High School.
The majority of our curriculum is from BJ Press, A Beka Books, and ACSI. Occasionally, self-directed courses for desired subjects are offered through Alpha Omega Publication LIFEPACS.
The high school program prepares students for college. Ninety Five percent of our graduates attend college. We require 23 units (credits) for a basic diploma and 29 units for college-bound students.
FINE ARTS & ATHLETICS
As a member of the Old Dominion Association of Church Schools, we compete in academics, athletics, and fine arts in regional, state, and national competitions (a member of AACS). We are competitive with other Christian schools in our region.
Our girls’ athletics consist of volleyball, basketball, soccer, track/field, and softball, while the boys’ teams consist of soccer, basketball, baseball, and track/field. We have a varsity, junior varsity and middle school program for nearly every sport. In recent years, LCS has placed in the state tournament in all sports.
We cater to students who wish to study musical instruments by having a representative from American Independent Music Association (AIMA) visit the school weekly to conduct group lessons. We also work with many of the students in chorus and small ensembles training them to use their voices to honor the Lord. Our all-school choir has regularly won awards at state competitions.
TUITION & BUSING
Since we do not accept any funding from government agencies or private institutions, we must collect tuition from each student. Our income is spent primarily to pay our teachers’ salaries and other ministry expenses. Studies have shown that Christian education educates students for much less than the public school system and most often offers a better education.
There is a base tuition with second and third-child discounts. Other fees include: books and material, sports, insurance, pictures, Stanford and PSATs. Occasionally there will be additional fees to cover expenses.
Tuition should be paid in full; however, if preferred, ten monthly installments are acceptable. A non-refundable registration fee must accompany all applications. Students who leave the school are responsible for the entire cost of tuition during the quarter they leave. Book fees are also non-refundable.
LCS offers convenient busing with varied fees based on the distance that the pickup point is from campus. We also encourage car pooling with other parents from the same area.
The standards at LCS are conductive to learning. We require attentiveness in class with respectful behavior. Our dress code stresses modesty for the girls and neatness for the boys. To make observing the dress code easier, our students must wear a school uniform which can be ordered for a reasonable price.
Students and parents must sign an agreement indicating that they will support and will adhere to the standards found in the handbook of Leesburg Christian School.
“I am much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth.”
“I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount.”
“Every institution in which men are not unceasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt.”
-- Martin Luther, Sixteenth Century
Prepares young people for life in the “real world,” because education with God’s perspective is the “real world.”
Provides a “greenhouse” in which our children can grow, thrive and become stronger.
Produces mature adults who can lead meaningful lives which are characterized by “good works.”
(Taken from “Christian Schools Are Prepared to Educate Students for Life in the Real World” by Dr. Paul A. Kienel)
We believe in the inspiration of the Bible; the triune God; the Virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, resurrection, and the second coming of Jesus Christ; the sinful state of man and his need for Christ; and the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
