LACS helps Bay Area parents nurture joyful leaders who positively influence the world in a Christ-centered community.



Students Learn Through Community

At LACS, we believe that having a variety of people with different backgrounds and experiences enhances our learning and our understanding of the world. It helps us to become more empathetic and compassionate towards others, to appreciate the unique gifts that other people bring, and it helps individuals feel that they belong and are valued.



Customizable Learning Experience for Academic Excellence

At LACS, we understand that people are constantly looking for ways to understand how they are different from others and how they can better develop their unique talents.  Our Learning Support Program (LSP) implements a systematic, explicit, evidence based multi-sensory approach that provides students with plenty of opportunities to be successful, to develop their strengths, and to build their confidence. 



A Faith Based Nurturing Environment for Spiritual and Character Development

At LACS, we believe that each child is an individual with unique needs, interests, and talents.  We recognize that finding one’s purpose in life, feeling fulfilled, and being connected to a greater community are fundamental to living a joyful and meaningful life, and that’s why we offer a nurturing environment with encouraging teachers who are dedicated to helping each student learn about themselves.

Mission: LACS equips students by providing a challenging academic environment through caring and rigorous instruction. The curriculum encourages innovative and critical thinking, strong communication skills, and effective skill to real-life application. LACS actively promotes knowledge and understanding of God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ, which will transform all aspects of the student’s life and character. Social-emotional learning is incorporated in all areas of student life. LACS nurtures a community of diverse learners where students, parents, and faculty support each other and positively influence the world around them.
