About LCS » History


A little about our school

LCS began in 1995 with 12 students. In 25 years we have grown to over 350 students with classes from K-3 through 12th grade.

In 2008, the school relocated to our new campus at 960 Eastland Dr. in Twin Falls. Our new building gives us ample room for our entire student body, including a state-of-the-art athletic field, playground facilities, and larger classrooms. In the summer of 2009, four additional classrooms were built.

We are fully accredited with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) and Advanced Ed, the State of Idaho, and are involved in student activities such as: Speech Meet, Science Fair, and Art Competition. In the Spring of 2018, LCS  was re-accredited for another five year term.

A spiritual focus is our priority at Lighthouse. Each class has daily Bible study, and the whole school meets for chapel on Wednesdays or Fridays. Our chapels include special times of worship and the study of God’s Word, the Bible. Our high school worship team leads worship for 6th-12th grades.

General Information

Each spring, winter, and fall, students from K5 through 10th grade take the MAP testing. PSAT’s are administered to the 11th grade class each October.

We have at least two school-wide fund raisers each year – a Dinner auction in the fall and a Walk-a-Thon (elementary school only) in May. The Athletic Department also has fund raisers, including the annual Golf tournament.
