Founded in 1909, LCC has a long tradition and a reputation to match. The list of alumni includes some shining lights of Canadian arts, letters, politics, business, and academics. There is a sense of place, and it’s considerable—students feel that they are participating within something larger than themselves. Of course, LCC has evolved over the years, though adaptations have been considered and orderly. A bilingual program for the primary grades was adopted in the early 1990s. The school became fully coeducational in 1995. The International Baccalaureate programme, too, is relatively new. Families are attracted to the traditions of the school, and the dedication to adapting to meet the needs of students. LCC continues to provide an example both of the value of looking ahead, developing programs that will meet the evolving needs of students, and with an eye to the kinds of academic, professional, and social environments students will encounter in their post-secondary careers and beyond.
