About Lansing Catholic Central High
Lansing Catholic High School is a regional, comprehensive, co-educational Roman Catholic high school accredited by the Michigan Association of Non-public Schools.
We actively integrate our faith into daily lessons, thus supporting our mission: “The Lansing Catholic High School community forms students spiritually, intellectually, and socially into faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.”
Admissions are based on prior academic, behavior, and attendance records.
LCHS serves the varied educational needs of Catholic and non-catholic youth in the Greater Lansing area. Students hail from as many as twenty different middle and elementary schools. The school enjoys a robust and growing enrollment, now numbering more than 500 students from throughout the mid-Michigan area. Our student-to-teacher ratio is sixteen-to-one, with an average class size of twenty.
Staff includes 35 lay teachers, certified by the State of Michigan, eighteen of whom have earned advanced degrees, as well as two religious sisters and one priest. In addition, there are two high school counselors and one student resource coordinator.
Students who have learning differences and have an active, individualized educati...on plan (IEP or 504 Plan) are accommodated by Lansing Catholic teachers, under the direction of our student resource coordinator.
Ninety-eight percent of Lansing Catholic graduates get into the college or university of their choice. Moreover, ninety-nine percent of our 2019 graduates are continuing their studies.
Tuition at Lansing Catholic is based on a cost-to-educate approach. Tuition assistance is available and is based on financial need. In 2018-19, Lansing Catholic distributed more than $464,000 to our school families in financial need. Tuition costs are available at the school’s website, www.lansingcatholic.org.
LCHS supports twenty-six sports, with outstanding accomplishments across the spectrum.
In addition, LCHS features more than 25 clubs and organizations.
Jesus repeatedly taught His disciples the importance of putting others before themselves. If we want to be Jesus’ disciples, we have to do the same. LCHS wants to foster an attitude where our students live for God and others before themselves. As a result, Lansing Catholic students must complete and log at least 80 hours of service before graduation.
There are several opportunities to enrich one’s faith at LCHS. This happens in a variety of ways at Lansing Catholic. Some of these are traditional, such as daily Mass, while others are more contemporary, such as retreats, student group activities, and mission trips.
Each year, campus ministry prayerfully selects a theme for the year. The 2019-20 theme is taken from Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Becoming faithful disciples of Jesus Christ is no easy task in this post-Christian world. The support of other Christians is essential. Part of this encouragement also means calling us on things when we act contrary to the gospel. This is what it means to be a community of faith and what we aspire to every day at Lansing Catholic.
