The sense of community among families, teachers, and students is an important element of Lorien Wood. All three come together with the common purpose of a Christ-centered education. We invite you to also watch our "Pillars of Lorien Wood" video at the bottom to get a window in on the special community fostered at Lorien Wood.

Community activities include:
  • Start-of-School Blessing Service (September)

  • Back to School Night (September)

  • Community Town Meetings (three per year—gathering as parents for a shared meal, meet to discuss key topics and share school news)

  • Lorien Wood Family Nights (three per year, including on a rotating basis: Math Night, Science Night, Folk Dance Night, Build-It Night, Fine Arts Night, and Story Night)

  • Lessons and Carols Service (December)

  • New Families Picnic for the whole community (May)

  • Field Day (organized by the 7th graders each year, in May typically, for the whole school)

  • Eighth Grade Graduation Ceremony (June)
