Based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, LM was originally founded in 1942 to give parents an alternative to public schools where students could be taught in a Christ-centered environment.

Though LM initially served mainly Mennonite students, each campus eventually began serving a diverse community of Christian families who appreciate an excellent education in a Christ-centered atmosphere at 3 campuses in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
