Since its founding in 1975, Lima Christian School has been dedicated to providing faith-based education for students.
The mission of Lima Christian School is to provide academic excellence, a nurturing environment, and strong community to help students discover their God-given talents and prepare them for a life honoring Jesus Christ.
The philosophy of education at Lima Christian School is based on the Bible as the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. The curriculum of Lima Christian School places God in the center of all things (Colossians 2:3; Proverbs 1:7). Lima Christian School exists to support parents in the training of their children in the truth of God as revealed through Scripture.
The purpose of Lima Christian School is to educate our students, help them discover their God-given talents, develop their full potential, and prepare them for a life honoring Jesus Christ.
Lima Christian School has been accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The accreditation process gives our families confidence that we are a trustworthy educational institution. As a non-public institution, it is important for us to have outside agencies helping us do our best to provide your children with an excellent education. Through regular assessment of our current faculty, curriculum, and school programs, we strive to continually improve and maintain high standards as we teach your children.
