The Lima Christian School faculty and staff is committed to excellence in all areas.
Our teachers, administrators, and staff members are committed to caring for your children not only by providing them an excellent education but also by showing them the love and care of Jesus Christ. We pray for your students daily and seek to help them grow in their relationships with Jesus as well as growing in their academic pursuits.
We are an ACSI-accredited school, which means that all of our faculty members meet ACSI’s professional and biblical requirements. Establishing and maintaining the certification of our staff and administration is an essential step in assuring our families of our professional credibility and growth. We encourage our employees to remain life-long learners, just as we encourage our students to continually pursue growth.
