Lakeside Christian School
Since 1975, Lakeside Christian School
has served K-12 students in the greater Clearwater community. Our student body reflects the ethnic and learning diversity of Pinellas County. Lakeside Christian School provides classrooms, curriculums, and professional teaching practices to motivate the accelerated learner to excel in their preparation for college or university coursework. Beyond academics, Lakeside Christian School is built on the biblical principles of loving God and loving others. This care is demonstrated through the warm, respectful relationships among staff and between staff and students.
Lakeside’s spiritual mission is that all students would come to know, love, and honor the Lord Jesus Christ. Our school’s academic mission is to improve measurable academic outcomes for all learners. We do this through the consistent application and integration of research-based best practices into our educational product and learning environment. Lakeside Christian School exists to bring God glory and to make Him known to our students.
Lakeside Christian School, a Clearwater private school, is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools, International (ACSI).
Lakeside Christian School seeks to give back to our community that which God has given us: our talents and a heart to minister to the needs of students in our surrounding communities. Our staff is comprised of professional Christian educators working together as a cohesive team striving to deliver on our mission for every child. All our Professional Education Staff meet or exceed the qualifications required by our Accreditation Agencies.
Grace to You
Grace to You and Grace Community Church have influenced Lakeside Community Chapel, primarily through the teaching and writing ministry of Dr. John MacArthur. Though we are not in formal affiliation with either of those two ministries, we share John MacArthur’s convictions about the Bible’s teaching on God’s sovereignty, salvation, and the spiritual walk of the believer. Lakeside’s doctrinal statement is in agreement with the doctrinal statement of both Grace to You and Grace Community Church. Two of our pastors are graduates of The Master’s Seminary, where Dr. MacArthur is the president.
The Gospel Coalition
The Gospel Coalition is a group of pastors and churches that exist to promote gospel-centered ministry and biblically-faithful resources for the church. Lakeside Community Chapel shares the doctrinal convictions and theological vision for ministry as outlined in their Foundation Documents.
Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals
The Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals (FIRE) is an organization of churches which affirms the five “Solas” of the Reformation. Although Lakeside Community Chapel is not “reformed” in its position on the Bible’s teaching about future events, we are in agreement with FIRE’s Statement of Faith. Pastor Kreloff is a member of the FIRE organization.
