The governor has announced that all Pennsylvania schools are to close from March 16-April 6. 


Dennis and Michele Saylor have been patrons at LAMS since 1998. Although they both graduated from public high schools they decided that their children should attend a Christian school. They continue to make this investment because they consider Christian education valuable in the lives of their children. They shared this about their experience at LAMS:

We decided on private, Christian school because we wanted our children to be educated in a setting that supported the values and beliefs that we were teaching them at home. We wanted them to be taught the truth academically and felt that subjects like science and history could not be taught accurately from a secular world view. We were involved with foster care at the time and knew that it was even more critical for children from this background to be surrounded by godly influence and teaching as much as possible. It was important to us that the teachers, who are with our children all day, are believers and are praying with and for our children.

We continue to remain at LAMS because of the positive influence it has had on our older children. As they moved out of LAMS, we found that the solid academics prepared them to excel in high school and college. More importantly, we see our children making godly choices in their lives based on the values and high moral standards that were reinforced throughout their years at LAMS. It has been a blessing to be a part of a community of believers where we can freely support and encourage each other on a spiritual level.
As we continue to raise children in an increasingly turbulent and sinful world, we are keenly aware of how important it is to give our kids a firm foundation so that they remain steadfast in their faith as they enter college and the workplace. We have been very thankful for the role LAMS has played, supporting us in our job of parenting. Our family has been blessed in countless ways by being part of the LAMS family!

Our daughter was going to a public elementary school before she entered LAMS. She was going to go into 2nd grade and our son was entering Kindergarten. We both thought that if we are going to make the switch to LAMS that this would be a good time to do that. Our son was in pre-K at LAMS and he was coming home singing songs about God, and we would do our family devotions at night and he would know everything about the story before we even started. It was so cool to see him light up and tell us about it. We decided that this was something that we valued so much. So we decided to take the leap of faith and send them to LAMS.

My wife, Kate, attended LAMS and had a great experience. Kate had felt like that was where we were called to send our kids from the start. I was a little more hesitant with the decision. However, seeing how much my son was growing with his knowledge of the Bible was so awesome to see. We knew that we both needed to feel that God was calling us here, so we spent a lot of time praying about it. God provided many signs that this was the right direction, so we stepped out in faith and listened to what He was telling us. LAMS is special because we know that our kids are getting the same type of spiritual lessons as they are at home. It is great knowing that they are being surrounded by Christian teachers, staff and peers. I love that they not only are getting a great education but more importantly they are being spiritually fed every day! Kate and I feel so blessed to be part of a wonderful family like LAMS. It truly is a school who cares and wants what is best for our kids. I want to see my kids’ knowledge and faith in Christ grow, and I know that at LAMS they are getting that and so much more. It's great to know that they are being surrounded by the same principles at home, school and church. We are so happy we took the step of faith and made the decision to send our kids to LAMS.

My husband and I adopted four children through the foster care system.  We knew when our children came to us that we wanted to send them to a Christian school.  My husband and I both went to private schools and understood the amazing benefits of a Christian education.  We also had several friends whose children had attended LAMS.

The first day we met with Mr. Garner and walked the halls we knew it was the place we wanted to send our children.  To be honest, although my husband and I felt God leading us to LAMS, we had no idea how we were going to pay for it.  However, we decided to apply for the scholarship and let it up to the Lord.  That was three years ago and we have never looked back.  We were approved for the scholarship and God has provided funds for us for the past three years.  We are so thankful and blessed. 

My children, my husband and I have also been so blessed by the staff at LAMS.  Our children are getting an amazing education, but the most valuable thing we have experienced is the love and care from the staff at LAMS.   From the teachers, to the office staff and the principal, as well as the parents of other children at LAMS, our family is blessed by our experience at LAMS.

Gary and Jennifer Redcay, patron with 4 students

When we were looking for a Christian school for our first child entering kindergarten, LAMS was recommended to us by friends. Eighteen years later, four of our children have graduated from LAMS. Our children continue wonderful friendships they began there. As parents, we have been blessed immeasurably by our interaction with other parents and Godly faculty and staff. We are so grateful for this positive educational experience for our children!

LAMS is truly a Christ-centered school. I have experienced this both as a student and now as a patron. I learned to strive for excellence as a student and now am seeing the teachers trying to bring that out in my children. The teachers really do care about their students. LAMS offers many ways to display the gifts God has given us. Some of my fondness memories include times at LAMS when I was using my gifts. I am thankful that LAMS is still part of our family.
