A note from Justin,
"We moved to Grant County in the spring of 2018 and are now proud to call Grant County home. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of the Lakeview family and excited about the work God is doing here at LCS. Also, as a family we are proud to have three children attending Lakeview Christian School. I believe LCS will help my children develop a biblical foundation and a love for learning that will guide them through their adventures of life. Over the past four years we can say we have had the opportunity to experience nearly every teacher from the parent’s perspective and we have been very impressed. Our teachers are highly professional and committed to the cause of Christ!"
