Lehigh Valley Christian High School (LVCHS) is a private, Christian high school located in Catasauqua, Pennsylvania.

History[edit]

LVCHS was established in 1988 as a cooperative among three Lehigh Valley, Christian elementary schools – Bethlehem Christian School, Lehigh Christian Academy, and Phillipsburg Christian Academy – desiring a continuation of their education style from the ninth to the twelfth grades. [1] For the last several years, the school has been housed in what was previously the Lincoln Middle School building of the Catasauqua Area School District. The new Catasauqua Middle School was moved to Pine street in Catasauqua

Student body[edit]

While located in and drawing students from Allentown, the students of LVCHS also come from other municipalities in the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania, western New Jersey and a wide range of countries from around the world.

The current enrollment is 140.[1]

Accreditation and memberships[edit]

Lehigh Valley Christian High School has earned accreditation from both the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the Association of Christian Schools International, the latter of which the School is also a member. LVCHS is also a member of Mid-Atlantic Christian School Association.[1]

Athletics[edit]

LVCHS competes in District XI of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association. The Cougars field teams in boys and girls soccer, field hockey, girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, cheerleading, baseball, and track and field.[2]
