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!

After our son's school closed we were'nt sure where we would continue his education. We were looking for not only a quality education but one that would instill our Christian beliefs. LAMS was suggested to us and even though we were hesitent because of it being a further drive for us, we decided to give it a try. We now have all three of our children enrolled so needless to say, we were not dissapointed. LAMS has truely become a family to us. Not only did our children make great friends, but Jeff and I have made some really great friendships too! The teachers are amazing and you can easily see how big their love for Jesus is and how much they want to share HIM with our children. We couldn't be haappier with our LAMS experience!                  -Jeff and Carissa Martin 

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.

As a previous student, I’m thrilled to return to the LAMS scene with my children. It’s great to see some of my old teachers. I appreciate the staff’s same open door policy and how they are concerned about the growth of my children, academically, emotionally, and spiritually. My husband, who is new to LAMS, is learning and seeing that this is a place of loving families and a place where staff really care about the children who come through the doors. He feels welcomed and I feel at home once again.
