Visit & Tour

Children learn best when they have the confidence and support to explore the world around them. We put this philosophy to practice in our classrooms — and with our admission visits! There is no better way to learn more about the school than to talk with current students, see the classrooms and meet our dedicated faculty. There are many ways to visit LCDS, and we encourage you to sign up for your visit today.
