Why Linfield?

Linfield Community Spirit

Why Linfield?

Because not everything can be learned in a classroom. So we take trips and participate in fun, crazy annual traditions, and these experiences allow students and faculty to forge meaningful relationships, making our school unique and strong.

What sets us apart in terms of our community spirit? Here are just a few examples. 

Global Community

With each passing day, the world seems to get a little smaller. News travels thousands of miles in seconds, and it only takes the click of a button to speak face to face with someone in London, Tokyo, or Johannesburg. We truly live in a global community, and Linfield is no exception, as the school is enriched each year by the addition of students from around the world. In recent years, local domestic students have learned alongside students from Korea, Germany, Taiwan, South Africa, China, Brazil, Japan, Canada, and Vietnam. As they wrestle with difficult homework problems, perform in the band, worship, and play sports together, our students share the ups and downs of life and challenge each other in the pursuit of excellence. In the process, not only do they become more culturally aware and respectful of diversity, they also develop lifelong friendships, building a special school community that reflects the global kingdom of God. 

Open For Business

The hottest currency at the elementary school? Lion Paws. Students accumulate them for being their extraordinary selves – helping a friend, showing kindness, putting in the extra effort, etc. – and then Linfield’s entrepreneurial 3rd-5th graders apply their Lion Paws to running actual businesses! They have to apply for a business license, create products, and advertise all in preparation for Market Day. The elementary school patio is then transformed into a bustling open air market filled with vendors selling homemade art, jewelry, crafts, and goodies to their classmates…in exchange for Lion Paws, of course. It’s a fun, chaotic scene as students shop, sell, and learn real world problem-solving skills in ways that could never be duplicated in the classroom. 

The Great Race

Blue, red, orange, and green. These colors are everywhere, painted on faces, draped across flags, splattered on T-shirts. The air is filled with the sounds of horns and cheers as hundreds of high school students whip themselves into a frenzied excitement. No, this is no ordinary race at Linfield. It's not even a "good race." It's THE GREAT RACE. One of Linfield's most treasured traditions, The Great Race is a spirited class competition during Homecoming Week that requires high school students to band together to complete a variety of physical and mental challenges. Dressed head to toe in their class colors, they compete in games of Blind Volleyball, Dodgeball, Can-Can, and Tug-of-War before participating in a sprawling race across the high school campus. At the end of the day, only one class can achieve Linfield immortality and be crowned victoriously. But ultimately we're all Lions anyway, and the Great Race's true legacy lies in the way it draws us all together.


We know that starting high school can be intimidating. You don't know anyone in your Geometry class; you're worried you'll be late getting back from P.E., and you have no idea where to buy lunch. So to make this transition easier, LCHS's LINK Crew, comprised of friendly and enthusiastic upperclassmen, throws an orientation event each year in order to welcome and introduce the freshman class to Linfield. The night is filled with fun activities designed to cultivate friendships and make students feel comfortable before school starts. After games, pizza, small group discussions, and personalized campus tours, the new freshmen even take a symbolic step on the football field, representing their adoption into our family of Lions. So don't worry; just LINK up and dive in! 

Night Crossing

In the dark stillness of an early spring night, brave middle school students move with stealth and precision as they slip through the shadows and move as quickly and quietly as they can. Their goal: to make it from one end of Linfield's sprawling campus to the other without being caught by one of their teachers! A long-standing tradition, Night Crossing is one of the most anticipated middle school events of the year because it gives students an opportunity to showcase their creativity and enjoy a spirited competition as they work together under the cover of darkness to outsmart their teachers and evade capture.
