History

Lake Center was established in September 1947 with 183 students. High school grades were added beginning in 2003 with the first graduating class in 2007, a class of 27 students.[4]

In the summer of 2013 the school began fundraising in order to build the "cafenasium," a multifunctional addition that would serve as a cafeteria and a gymnasium, amongst other things. In May 2016, construction of the project commenced with a groundbreaking ceremony.

Extracurricular activities

Teams are fielded in baseball, basketball, cheerleading, golf, soccer, softball, track & field, and volleyball.

Lake Center Christian began play in the Portage Trail Conference County Division in August 2015 after previously competing as an independent.[5] The school is also considering the addition of a football program in the future.

Portage Trail Conference

The Portage Trail Conference or PTC is an association of 15 high schools and their associated middle/junior high schools located in the northeast region of the U.S. State of Ohio. Seven member schools are in Portage County, five are in Summit County, and one each is located in Medina, Stark, and Mahoning counties. The conference is divided into two divisions, based on enrollment. The Metro Division contains the larger schools, who compete in Ohio's Divisions III and IV for football, while the County Division contains the smaller schools, who compete in divisions IV-VII. Because they are based on enrollments, a school's membership in a given division can change if enrollment numbers change. Games between teams of the same division count in conference standings, while games against schools from the other division are treated as non-conference games. The conference officially began play in August 2005.
