Liberty Christian School is a college-prep school. That means we focus on ensuring that our students are trained and prepped for college throughout their time here. Not just their work load reflects it, but also the structure of classes and their weekly schedule. Our Juniors and Seniors get to participate in our ‘hybrid’ schedule, meaning they come to school Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; leaving Tuesdays and Thursdays free for internships, work, online classes, or even classes at local colleges. We are proud to say that over 95% of graduating students go on to 4-year Universities, most with large academic scholarships. Our College Advisor, Miss Boctor, takes time to meet with students throughout the year to help make sure they are on the right track for college. She meets with not just the seniors, but all of our 7th through 12th grade students.
How do you figure out which high school is the right high school? Well, there are a lot of factors that need to be looked at. More and more we see that colleges are looking for the well-rounded individual. No more focusing on just high GPA’s, stellar athletic abilities, or AP classes. Now, you’ve got to have it all; but with those expectations, how are students supposed to have a social life? At Liberty, we focus on working with each student to hone in on their future and start planning. With a plan, you can structure your high school career to help you get into college. Did you know that not all universities give preferential treatment to those AP classes you’ve been forking over hundreds of dollars for? Or that some universities accept an ACT score as an alternative to the SAT score. Did you also know that the ACT and the SAT test cater to different learning styles? Do you know which test is best for your student? When an LCS student starts meeting with Miss Boctor, they spend time figuring out the best classes to take to build up for their college and career of choice. That, along with the fact that LCS is a WASC accredited school, is setting up your student for success.
What does WASC have to do with it all? WASC, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, is a highly esteemed accreditation program that ensures that high schools are doing what they’re supposed to. The process is renewed every 3 to 6 years ensuring that schools are on track academically, as well as structurally. These are just a few of the things WASC focuses on:
- Assures a school community that the school’s purposes are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable education program — a trustworthy institution for student learning
- Validates the integrity of the school’s program and transcripts
- Facilitates transfer of credits to other English-speaking schools — critical for college/university acceptance worldwide
- Fosters the ongoing improvement of the school’s programs and operations to support student learning
When a student graduates from a WASC accredited school, they walk away with an education that has been nationally recognized and validated. The odds of acceptance into a 4-year university with a degree from a non-accredited school are much slimmer than that of an accredited school.
We’ve got stellar academics, a great athletics program, and a phenomenal hybrid program that allows Juniors and Seniors the opportunity to take college classes, jobs, or work at an internship. We have a college advisor dedicated to ensuring that students stay focused and take the appropriate classes to benefit their future college careers. Add all that to our WASC accreditation and it’s pretty clear that LCS is definitely a college prep school. That alone should convince you that LCS is the right choice for your family.
Figuring out college is sometimes overwhelming and daunting. We fully understand and want to assure you that college is absolutely achievable for everyone. While all the things we already mentioned are a huge benefit to helping your student get into college, personal experience is much more valuable. All our teachers have walked through different paths and experiences when it comes to their educational careers. With their combined experiences, they are our greatest resources. Everything from academics, to financial aid and scholarships, to graduate schools. Our love for education and our passion to serve at this Christian institution is what fuels our student interactions and relationships. How can we help your student begin this exciting journey towards adulthood?
