My son has been attending Los Altos Christian School (LACS) since he was in the sixth grade. One of the main differences between LACS and other high schools in the area is that LACS offers the LD (Learning Difference) options for those who need it. LACS is a small school so that students who prefer small school settings will feel welcome at this school, whereas big schools may not offer such environment.
Lacs High School Programs
Los Altos Christian High School offers three academic tracks for our students which are the Remedial Track, Core Track, and the Preparatory Track. Each track builds upon language acquisition skills necessary for high school students and prepares them for college and beyond. We carefully assess each student and design individually-tailored programs to address the student's strengths and weaknesses.Find details about each track below.
