Lutheran Church of the Cross broke ground to begin building Aliso Viejo Christian School in 1999, this included 9 classrooms, school and church offices, a multipurpose room (worship/chapel/gym) and kitchen on 5 acres with a soccer field and full play-structure. The second phase was built in 2001, we were blessed with a state of the art, two-story building hosting 13 classrooms, a computer technology lab, and a library. This enabled AVCS to expand our enrollment to include two classrooms for each grade level and add additional classroom options for Middle School. In 2010, Aliso Viejo Christian School expanded again by constructing a third building including a state-of-the-art gymnasium and theater, the Cove (a youth room with a small stage and an office), a language lab, an elementary science lab, a drama/art lab, resource office, a nurse’s office, and a dedicated instrumental music room. This addition relocated and improved our outdoor basketball courts and playground which was later covered completely by a shade-structure.
Today, Aliso Viejo Christian School, has an enrollment of approximately 390 students filling Junior Kindergarten through Eighth Grades. AVCS is the largest ministry of Lutheran Church of the Cross and maintains a non-denominational Christian environment in which our curriculum is enriched with our faith in Jesus Christ.
