Putting faith into practice, everyday.
At Los Gatos Christian School, we all work to create an environment that allows students to experience the love of God, pursue His purpose for their lives, and become more Christ-like throughout their academic endeavors. We practice our faith regularly and have developed programs throughout the year that are designed to encourage the growth of each student's personal relationship with God.
Daily Bible Class
Students participate in biblical studies at every grade level with weekly memorization of Bible verses and interactive lessons and curriculum. Additionally, our teachers weave relevant, and grade-level appropriate biblical perspectives into all course materials.
Students in Kindergarten through fifth grade attend elementary chapel each week on Tuesday afternoons. Led by our dynamic Head of School, Mr. Torode, a focus on developing positive character traits is emphasized. A variety of special speakers visit throughout the year to encourage students to become passionate in their pursuit of living out their Christian faith.
Devotions and Prayers
As a team, it's important for us to pray together. The LGCS faculty and staff meet for devotions and prayers three times a week. The "Moms in Prayer" parent organization meets on a weekly basis to support the LGCS community through intentional prayer.
Easter Chapel presents the opportunity for children in 2nd grade and older to publicly profess their faith through water baptism. Interested students complete a questionnaire and meet with the Head of School to take part in this milestone step of faith.
LGCS Gives Back
Los Gatos Christian School students have a long, rich history of giving back to the community by financially supporting commendable non-profit organizations. Each year students embark on an all-school effort to develop a habit of charitable giving and service towards others.
Some of the organizations we supported over the past decade include: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Second Harvest Food Bank, The JW House, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Todd Beamer Foundation, Hurricane Katrina Relief, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. In addition to financial support, each class adopts a service project and partners with local organizations to make a difference in our community.
