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.
