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


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.

Every day we are thankful that our children attend LAMS. As we look around, we are encouraged that our children’s lives are being built on a solid foundation. We have five children currently at LAMS from 2nd grade through 7th grade. We have seen how the teachers not only teach, but also pray, encourage, nurture and develop each student into the unique person that God has made. This concept was very important to us as we searched for primary Christian education. All our children are adopted and of varying ethnic heritage. We have always been accepted and treated as part of the community here at Lititz Area Mennonite School, even though our home church is other than Mennonite. LAMS is an extension of our family values and the children are surrounded by love and support.

LAMS truly educates for eternity and we see this in our four children. As the scripture promises in Isaiah 55:11 "His word does not return void", God's word, love, caring and godly character is prayerfully sown into each student and it is a foundation for a lifetime. We see evidence of this in middle school, high school, college, and on the mission field, in our children - where they are now! A rich community environment is created and experienced by serving together in the many school activities - the auction, trash-a-thon, sports, fieldtrips, track-n-field days, Bible quizzing and more.
