Measuring the Mission
By Pam Campbell, Superintendent
Kneeling in the dust, a half-dozen men prayed that God would bless their handiwork as they constructed the building that would become Lansing Christian School. Meanwhile, a handful of teachers lifted their voices to God asking Him to reward their efforts by raising up the next generation of Christian leaders. Many of those children, who were prayed for by Godly teachers, are part of our school family, contributing by paying-it-forward to the next generation of faithful leaders.
A few years ago, Lansing Christian School teachers and administrators, began on a journey of self-assessment of our policies, principles, and practices. This journey culminated in October with a visit by the accreditation visitation team. After talking to board members, parents, teachers, students, and administrators, the visitation team unanimously voted, without exception, to recommend Lansing Christian School for accreditation with three entities: Christian Schools International, North Central Association of Schools and Colleges, and National Council of Private School Accreditation.
As our school improvement path continues, we are focusing on three main goals: Curriculum alignment and articulation; Integration of faith and Christian principles throughout the curriculum; and Blended learning – integrating technology into our curriculum. As Lansing Christian School celebrates its 60th Anniversary, we continue to look to our heritage and founding principles, while keeping our eyes focused on Christ as we work to grow our students’ minds, nurture their faith, and prepare their lives for Christian leadership.
