Student Life

Students have many opportunities to participate in school life. At each school level, students are involved in outstanding athletics, arts, service and co-curricular programmes.

The school ensures that each student encounters valuable experiences in all these areas, providing a solid foundation for life beyond LCIS.

They can also enrol in any of a large number of activities, from community service, steel band, choir, drama productions, Model United Nations, Rotary Interact Club to both competitive and social activities in sports. International events and celebrations are organised for both students and parents, highlighting different aspects of diverse cultures, as well as field trips exploring the culture of The Bahamas.

Students have the opportunity to explore athletics in a variety of formats at the school including co-curriculars, interscholastic leagues, club training and national or international competitions. We take full advantage of our beautiful local environment with year-round outdoor tennis, SCUBA, sailing and kayaking from the marina across the street.


"This has been a phenomenal year for our music and drama departments. The best part of our success is watching as our passionate students grow and improve each year. We are able to cultivate and develop their skills and talents, resulting in exceptional performers that we can all be proud of."

Mrs Elizabeth Taylor, Music Teacher


Learning does not just happen in the classroom at LCIS. We believe strongly in the transformational experiences our field trips offer. Off-island, overnight trips are built into the curriculum for grades 5-12. In addition, optional travel experiences for sports, cultural experiences, or leadership opportunities exist at the secondary school.


Community service is woven through the curriculum and expectations of students from the earliest years at LCIS. Beginning in the Early Learning Centre and continuing through grade 5, students complete one class service project per year. In secondary school, service becomes more personal and students continue to serve the community and school through various required and optional projects.

This centuries-old mainstay of Bahamian culture is a point of great pride for the LCIS community as evidenced by the fact that we have won in every division in two of the last three parades we have participated in.
