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 – which desired a continuation of their education style from the ninth to the twelfth grades.[1] After being housed in what was previously the Lincoln Middle School, LVCHS is currently located in the Calvary Temple Church[2] building in Allentown.

Mission[edit]

Lehigh Valley Christian High School seeks to equip students to think biblically and function purposefully in society.

Student body[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 the Mid-Atlantic Christian School Association.[3][1]
