Academics At Locust Grove
The Locust Grove Campus, located along the Old Philadelphia Pike, one mile east of the Lancaster Campus, serves grades PreK-8.
The campus seeks to have a warm ecumenical spirit, valuing students of differing different denominational backgrounds, racial/ethnic groups and abilities.
Locust Grove teachers take time for individual instruction and nurturing, starting in the early grades. Our PreK program is designed to create a secure and nurturing environment that develops a love for school and a love of learning within the context of a real school environment. Experiencing a regular school-day schedule and a regular school environment better prepares students for going to a real school for kindergarten and first grade. LM offers the option of up to five full days of PreK per week. Learn more about PreK and kindergarten. Kindergarten is also a full-day program. Before and after school care is available.
The Locust Grove Campus maintains a reputation for educational excellence. In addition to the core subjects, technology, information literacy, career education, wellness and writing are integrated into the curriculum.
Music and art are important parts of the Locust Grove Campus. Colorful displays of student artwork line the halls at Locust Grove. See Fine Arts.
Locust Grove is one of the few schools in Lancaster County that offers the option of Spanish Immersion at the elementary level.
Students enrolling in Spanish Immersion more quickly and thoroughly learn the Spanish language. Students develop proficiency in the language by hearing and using it in regular subject areas rather than by studying the language by itself. Learn more about Spanish Immersion.
