Lake Country Christian School has partnered with Student Leadership University, the premier leadership training program for Christian students. Student Leadership University’s mission is to develop and equip student leaders to think, dream, and lead. With a vision of preparing the next generation, they strive to instill future tense thinking; character-driven decision making; ownership of biblical values; and a commitment to influence through service. SLU aims to accomplish this vision through leadership adventures that are marketed through significant relationships across multiple denominational lines, delivered with excellence, and lead to a sustainable, long-term relationship.
The SLU 101, 201, 301, and 401 courses are offered each summer. These are the programs through which students are trained and equipped to become difference-makers throughout their lives. Incoming freshmen participate in SLU 101 in San Antonio, incoming sophomores participate in SLU 201 in Washington, DC, incoming juniors participate in SLU 301 in Europe, and incoming seniors participate in SLU 401 in the Holy Land. LCCS will be starting our first year in partnership with SLU by offering courses SLU 101 and 201 for freshmen and sophomores.

“Leadership Begins at the Feet of Jesus. The final step of the SLU journey begins at the birthplace of our faith. After you walk through Scripture at SLU 401, in the footsteps of the most incredible servant leader and teacher our world has ever known, you will never read the Bible the same way again. Not only is faith brought to life, but you will better understand your role in God’s redemptive story and that true leadership begins at the feet of Jesus.” – Student Leadership University
