Linfield Christian School (LCS) is a K-12, co-educational, college-preparatory school located on a 100 acre campus in Temecula, California, a city that is centrally located between San Diego, 57 miles to the south and Los Angeles, 76 miles to the northwest. The school’s colors are Navy, Light Blue and White and the school mascot is the Lion. The current student enrollment is approximately 750 students.


Linfield Christian School, founded and established in 1936, was originally located in Los Angeles and was named the Culter Academy after its founder, Dr. Mabel Culter. Dr. Culter began the school in a home with seven students. Rapid increases in enrollment necessitated several relocations of the campus within Los Angeles. In 1968, the academy moved to its present site and reopened in 1972 as Linfield. Don Odell was president at the time of the relocation and Dr. Robert Mounce was the first headmaster.

Accreditation and memberships[edit]

The school is governed by a Board of Trustees, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC K-12), and holds membership in the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and California Interscholastic Federation (CIF).
