The LCIS Experience

Whether from across the globe or down the road, students from 18 months to 18 years are welcomed and supported at LCIS from their very first day.

OUR COMMUNITY IS PROUD to be 40% Bahamian and to represent 41 nationalities and 14 languages. We celebrate our diversity and offer curriculum and programmes that develop international mindedness alongside an appreciation of Bahamian culture. With high-quality academics, world-class campuses and well-rounded programming, there are exciting opportunities for every student at LCIS.


Experience comes with age and, with 58 years of history, LCIS has a trusted record of growth and success.

“As new parents coming from abroad, we were delighted to learn that LCIS would ultimately exceed our overall expectations. From the very first days, we were surrounded by friendly faces, eager and willing to help out with the challenges of such a life-changing transition. Before long we were convinced that, not only the community, but the academics at LCIS could compete with any school in Canada.”


“When our two daughters started at LCIS, neither of them spoke any English and we had moved to the Bahamas from Estonia just a day before the school started. The school's full English immersion programme with additional support, and the professional warm support of all staff ensured that our family's transition was almost seamless. We all felt at home and in good hands from day one.”


“After graduating LCIS, I completed four years of study in Scotland, graduating with a BA in Finance. Then, I completed an MSc in Financial Communication at the University of Lugano, Switzerland. Recently, I started working at Julius Baer here in Nassau. The IB Programme at LCIS raised my expectations of what life could be like after high school and helped me to exceed limits and aim high.”

Both of my children were able to gain admission to Ivy league universities because of the high-quality education they received at LCIS. The rigour of the IB and the well-rounded curriculum at LCIS gave them the preparation needed to excel in university and in life. I am happy that while at LCIS, they were not only able to pursue their passions but also to develop them at a high level with the support of their teachers.
