LCS Proclamation & Creed

We desire to create a positive, safe environment with a close knit “tribal” community of happy, trusted, compassionate, forgiving friends.

We proclaim that as parents and mentors, our mission is to raise joyful leaders who love learning, passionately pursue their God-given missions in life, and impact the human family for good. We support the family as the fundamental unit of society and believe it to be ordained of God. We encourage parents and youth to strive for family unity. We govern ourselves according to the principles of Leadership Education. We are working toward getting an education like the ones our Founding Fathers received, one that matches our missions in life, and develops solid character and an allegiance to God. We strive to inspire students (both parents and children) to love learning, deeply study the classics, govern themselves according to natural law, and initiate solutions based on the principles of freedom and self-control.

We come together as families to support one another in the pursuit of building united and moral families and developing citizens who are capable of governing themselves. We support families involved in Leadership Education: a God-centered, family-driven, freedom-based philosophy. We believe in natural phases of development and in learning basics such as right from wrong, true from false, and good from evil. We believe in inviting our children to fall in love with learning. We want to inspire our children to become life-long learners through intentional parenting, inspired mentoring, and by example. ​A natural extension of becoming life-long learners is developing the skills, abilities and habits of scholars, diving into learning until we have a breadth and depth that helps us reach excellence in a variety of areas.

​We believe that each member of the family has a variety of personal missions that they are called to perform throughout their life, and it is our duty and privilege as parents to help prepare our families to be able to meet these calls when they come. At LCS, we believe that the purpose of education is to develop within ourselves and within our children the Vision, Mission, Abilities, Skills, and Knowledge that bring us closer to fulfilling our God-given missions. When focusing on the educational needs of our children, it is natural for parents to take responsibility for their own growth: spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Our goal is to seek and apply truth as individuals and as families, and to contribute in unique ways to building a society rich in morality, beauty, virtue, and all that is praiseworthy.

We are gathering families who support this proclamation and agree with the Liber Community Creed, which states:

  1. Families are the basic/fundamental unit of society and ordained of God. (Bible)
  2. Governments are institutions of men and derive their power from the people governed. (Declaration of Independence)
  3. The results of our actions are determined by obedience (or disobedience) to natural law. (Bastiat)
  4. We have God-given freedom of choice (Galatians 5:1); no conscience should be forced. (U.S. Constitution)
