The campus of Lotts Creek Community School (LCCS) consists of the historic log structures used in the beginning to the modern new Cordia School facility. LCCS stands as a testament to the faith that brought Alice Slone’s dream to fruition. Students attribute the school’s success to the small class sizes and close relationships with teachers. “You get one-on-one with the teachers,” says student, Courtney Worley. “They know you and how to help you.” Teachers have a genuine concern for the students and go out of their way to help. In addition to the excellent educational program and curriculum enhancement activities, Lotts Creek Community School goes a step beyond. LCCS provides the facilities, supplies and funds for art, music instruction and enriching activities, such as field trips, cultural events and in-school appearances of authors, actors, entertainers, civic and business leaders. Enhancement programs in art and music provide an atmosphere of inspiration for the students.
Deep in the hollows of southeastern Kentucky there is a unique school that provides a quality education adapted to the Appalachian Mountain culture. Lotts Creek Community School (LCCS) serves the remote Knott County community of Cordia with an emphasis on producing scholars. This school sends three-fourths of its high school graduates to college or other advanced training, armed with scholarship assistance available to all graduates.
In 2006, Cordia hit an amazing achievement: Cordia had a 100 percent transition rate - all of the senior class went on to pursue higher education - impressive for any school!
Lotts Creek Community School operates an after-school program which provides safe and stimulating environment for its students. This project has received national recognition, but struggles to maintain operational funding.
