Apply to Larchmont Charter School

Larchmont Charter School (LCS) is a continuous TK-12 program with four campus locations.  It is a parent-initiated school that strives to build a creative, academically challenging and emotionally nurturing environment for our children – one that embraces and celebrates the diversity of languages and cultures in our urban community while retaining the close-knit feel of a neighborhood school.  We are a school of choice and offer an alternative option to the traditional public school curriculum.

LCS students are inspired by our personalized, hands-on, and constructivist approach.  We develop in students a deep sense of self, academic excellence, creativity, and a commitment to improving the world they inhabit.
