As the oldest private school in the greater Lubbock area, Lubbock Christian School (LCS) began serving families in 1954. It was part of a dream that became a vision, then a plan, and finally a reality. LCS was the first step taken by a large group of supporters, led by five men along with their families: Paul Sherrod, J.C. Rigney, J.B. McCorkle, W.T. Rogers, and J. Don Baldridge.
The initial classes on the current campus were held in 1958, and the Class of 1965 was the first to graduate from Lubbock Christian High School. No church governs or subsidizes Lubbock Christian School, although the school was founded and is directed by members of Churches of Christ. LCS offers classes for pre-kindergarten through 12th grades. The school is fully accredited through AdvancEd and the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission (TEPSAC), which is fully approved and recognized by the Texas Education Agency. Lubbock Christian School welcomes families of all faiths and admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
Lubbock Christian School graduates exceptional students. These individuals go on to lead lives of integrity and character equipped with the spirit of hope, service, and drive to succeed. Over 95% of Lubbock Christian School graduates continue through to higher education and professional careers.
