God has blessed all of us with a wonderful Christian school and a marvelous opportunity to honor Him. Let’s work together to strive for excellence as we press toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Phil 1:9-10; 3:14).
Dear Parents and Students,
The Cross Lanes Christian School is first a CHRISTIAN school. The spiritual emphasis of the school is of far greater importance than its academic standing in any community. The school should ever keep the spiritual life “red hot.” It is a given that academic excellence should characterize the school; however the “heart” of the student is more important than the “head.” If the heart is right, the head will be right. Teaching the child to “be” is far more important than teaching the child to “do.” Therefore, our priority is in our name. We are Cross Lanes CHRISTIAN School, Christian before school, Christian before athletics, Christian before extracurricular, etc. Developing a proper Christian worldview is the ultimate purpose of a Christian school education. Students equipped with a proper Christian Worldview are better able to function in society, better able to cope with trials and circumstances that cause some to fall into sin and become cynical toward God, country, and life in general. It is a great privilege to have the opportunity to learn in a Christian atmosphere. From the educator’s perspective that privilege reminds us also of the enormous responsibility the school bears in assisting the parents in training, nurturing, and admonishing their children. The educators of CLCS do not take that privilege nor responsibility lightly. The philosophy of the school is summarized succinctly by declaring that we, the school, are not a substitute for the (home) parents, but a supplement to the (home) parents. This Student/Parent handbook is designed to assist parents and students in the directions of the daily operations of the school. Thank you again for considering Cross Lanes Christian School.
For Christian Education,

Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Cross Lanes Christian School! What a joy and privilege it is to attend a Christian School. The testimony of our school is well known across America, and our graduates are well accepted in institutions of higher learning. We are deeply indebted to the members of Cross Lanes Baptist Church who have sacrificed time and finances to provide such a wonderful facility to house this ministry. Also, it is an honor to have such a godly and dedicated teaching staff. Some of the best educators in West Virginia teach at our school. We are very grateful to the Lord for the opportunity to train the youth of tomorrow in a Christ-centered atmosphere. Thank you for considering our school. We are committed to serving you in Christian education with a mark of excellence. We have done more than keep our cost competitive; our tuition is one of the lowest in our area for a full-service school. That is our commitment to you and your family. This handbook details our commitment to integrity. The principles contained in this book have been proved to be successful. Please read it thoroughly and discuss it with your student. Your cooperation will only enhance the education process. Honestly, our only goal is to aid you in rearing your child in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” Please let us know if there is any way that we can assist you. May the Lord bless you as you serve Him in the days ahead.
Dr. Dave Buckley
