God has ordained only two institutions for the training of children: the home (Ephesians 6:1-4) and the church (Matthew 19:14; 28:20; John 21:15). The church and home must cooperate in order to effectively train your child. The greatest damage we can do to children is to submit them to divided authority. As the Bible says in Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together except they be agreed?”; and I Corinthians 1:10, “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”
At Lincoln Christian School (LCS), our mission is to introduce families to the real Jesus and help them identify their next step, and our goal is to provide young people with an excellent education while assisting their parents in the important work of raising up children who love Jesus. We recognize that while we may take the lead in educating your child academically, you the parent are primarily responsible for your child’s spiritual education and growth as well as the development of your child’s fundamental character. LCS assists parents; LCS does not replace the role of the parent.
As we work together toward molding children who are both academically and spiritually strong, we ask that you remember and commit to the following requirements and expectations of LCS:
Mission, Vision, and Philosophy
Standards of Behavior

LCS recognizes that sometimes parents will disagree with a decision or policy of LCS. The disagreements can lead to anger and resentment if not addressed or if addressed improperly but can often lead to increased understanding and mutual trust when handled properly. LCS asks that parents follow these guidelines when dealing with potential disagreements or conflicts with LCS, its staff, and administrators:
