We Are Now Accepting Donations for Our Race for Education Fundraiser!


Race for Education

We are lacing up our sneakers next month and running to help raise money for our school's "race for education." This event raises money for our school to continue to have elective classes such as: Art, Music, Spanish, Computer, Physical Education and off-campus community service projects. 

We are celebrating our 20th year as an educational establishment dedicated to the academic and spiritual growth of the students of Sussex County, Delaware. LCS is a place where student learning thrives and children feel good about the place they call their school. We believe that this is because of the incredible students that attend LCS, the qualified staff who believe that relationships with students is the key to optimal learning and, most importantly, the dedicated support of our families. We could not engage in the wonderful learning opportunities and the fun things we do without your monetary support. Please know that no amount is too small. Your ongoing support is truly appreciated.

What we will be doing:

We will be lacing up our sneakers and running/walking to raise money for our school in the "Race for Education."

Your donations will help pay for:
  • Elective Classes such as: Music, Art, Gym, Spanish, etc

Learning Assistance Program

Lighthouse Christian School has adopted an admissions policy that opens the school to families who are like-minded spiritually and who believe in our school’s mission by offering tuition assistance to families who otherwise could not afford full tuition. Our LAP assists students in grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade by helping those students for whom the cost would otherwise be prohibitive to receive a quality education.

Lighthouse Christian School strives to create a diverse student body of varying financial circumstances. This is made possible through a fund which receives monies from private donors as well as fund raising events.

LAP is awarded to families based on financial need. Eligibility and grant amounts are determined by our LAP Committee which will review financial information you give through FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Program. Tuition grants are not designed to support lifestyle choices that result in heavy financial stress or indebtedness.

FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for Lighthouse Christian School for the upcoming school year. Families applying for financial aid will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment beginning March 1st with a deadline of July 1st.
