Lake Highland’s student body comprises many different faiths, and we welcome families of all religions to the school. We believe each student is a unique child of God and that every child can thrive in an atmosphere of love, concern, and mutual respect. Though there are no compulsory religious requirements (such as mandatory chapel periods or religious classes), as part of our Mission Statement, we work to instill in our students the lessons of nine tenets of Christianity (the “Fruit of the Spirit”), which we believe are widely accepted values by people of many faiths. For more information about Christian values at Lake Highland, please click here.
