Middle School students are offered opportunities for leadership. Through service projects and opportunities to participate in campus leadership, our students learn they can make a positive impact in the world.
Students who excel in academics are invited into the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS). They must have a 3.5 GPA or above to be considered. Students are then evaluated by a faculty committee on their leadership, character, citizenship and service. The NJHS members are predominantly a service group. They put on the annual Nativity Tea to raise money to help our veterans. They have a school beautification project which has included Daffodil Hill and large tree planter boxes. The NJHS students also participate in a variety of events that include the Elementary grades.
Student Advisory and Activities Council (SAAC) is our form of student government. To be a member, students must complete an information packet, obtain teacher recommendations, and have approval from the administration. They offer input on desired electives and the needs of the student body. Activities include running the student Snack Shack, Spirit Days combined by community service collections (i.e. pet food for an animal group, and school supplies for a South American School). They help organize a large Red Carpet Event, Finals Finale and a wide variety of lunchtime activities for the Middle School.
The LACS Ambassadors Club is a leadership group for Middle and High school students. This group of students greets on Visitor Days, Open Houses, and school events such as Christmas Chapel, International day and Graduation Ceremony. In doing so the goal is to build confidence as they show their school pride. This group also serves as a mentorship group for students to discuss as a group those things that are on their mind in confidence.
The Middle and High School students also reach out to the community in many ways. At Christmas, the students support local families in need through a Giving Tree project. They also carol in the neighborhood and make Christmas cards for neighbors and church staff. Seventh grade students have a semester-long project to provide help or assistance, volunteer with the project, and report back with their results. During the school year, they may collect pet food or blankets for a local animal shelter, gather books for children in local shelters, or support a local food bank with a canned food drive.
