At LCC, our goal is to inspire students to become inquiring, principled, open-minded, caring, reflective and engaged citizens of our world.
From their first days in kindergarten right up to graduation, our students develop skills and acquire knowledge that are vital to becoming lifelong learners and leaders. Our rich academic program, combined with an extensive co-curricular offering and service opportunities, prepare them for living and working in a 21st century global society.
LCC’s academic program is designed to help students of all ages to think critically, communicate effectively, problem-solve creatively, study independently, and apply their knowledge in a variety of situations. We understand that students are unique with varied learning styles, and we cater to those differences by using a variety of teaching approaches. Students learn to collaborate with others and interact with their peers in many different types of circumstances.
We believe in the potential of our students and teach in a way that captures their imagination. A dedication to teaching and a passion for learning create an environment where students and teachers are motivated to pursue personal excellence. Mark Salkeld, Deputy Head

Beyond the Classroom
Outside the classroom, our students become involved in a variety of co-curricular activities that help to cultivate collaborative working skills and allow them to pursue their interests and passions. They build confidence by performing in a school play, singing in the school choir, joining athletic teams, or playing in the concert band. They learn resilience by losing in a debate and then coming back to improve and try again. They learn to reflect by debriefing on a student conference that they have organized or by watching themselves on film after a football game. At all levels, students participate in age-appropriate service activities and truly live our school motto: Non Nobis Solum/Not For Ourselves Alone.
With teachers as coaches, directors and mentors in the co-curricular program, a sense of trust and close bonds are developed with the student, which further facilitates learning within the classroom.
An MYP Candidate School
LCC has been approved as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP). This approval represents the first step in our efforts to become an authorized MYP school and offers validation of our exceptional approaches to teaching and learning at LCC.
The MYP is a framework that uses a variety of teaching strategies and styles to help students understand the connections between their studies and the real world and become lifelong learners.
