LUMEN CHRISTI CATHOLIC SCHOOL was opened in 1968 as a result of the determination of the Catholic Community of Jackson to build a modern educational school that would serve the varied educational needs of all the Catholic youth of Jackson.
Our school is governed by a local Board of Trustees under the direction of the Bishop of Lansing. We are supported and maintained by the following Catholic Parishes: St John the Evangelist, St. Mary Star of the Sea, Our Lady of Fatima, Queen of the Miraculous Medal, St Rita, and St. Catherine Laboure.
The total area of our school encompasses 172,700 square feet. The educational concept of the interior presents a departmentalized system with practical flexibility to meet new and changing educational demands. Vital to the education of our students is a comprehensive Resource Center and Library with seating capacity of 265. The 180-foot diameter domed gymnasium seats 3000 people for athletic and community events along with both a wrestling and weight room. The cafetorium (combined cafeteria and auditorium) with complete kitchen facilities, accommodates 500 for dining and approximately 700 for assemblies or other social functions.
LUMEN CHRISTI CATHOLIC SCHOOL ranks among the finest Catholic high schools in the State of Michigan.
