Indiana families are blessed with multiple School Choice programs that allow students to attend private schools.
It is our hope and desire through these programs and our own internal efforts of fundraising that any family that desires to partner with Lakeview Christian School to grow and develop their students can do so regardless of financial constraints. That is why we provide 4 different opportunities of Financial Assistance to diligently meet the needs of the community.
The best way to understand your family's specific financial situation is to meet with our Business Manager to review details.
