Opportunities to develop leadership skills come through many student-led activities. Events include Homecoming, the Yuletide Punctillio, Community Work Day, Prom, and Student Council.

Relationships built in middle and high school as well as the community in which we live shape our lives forever. In the community at Lafayette Christian School, a student is given the opportunity to grow in his relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, rich relationships with students, teachers, and coaches are developed and strengthened.

Service gives the opportunity to give back (it is more blessed to give than to receive), develop leadership (be faithful in little and you will be entrusted with much), and find self-identity and self-worth. Upper school students have numerous opportunities to mentor younger students, and take positions of leadership in clubs and organizations and on athletic teams.

Athletics is an integral part of our program used to help the student become a well-rounded individual, striving toward his God-given potential. The athletic program provides well-planned and well-balanced inter-scholastic activities. Through athletics, physical skills are learned, relationships are fostered, and character is built.
