Lumen Christi Catholic School
1968 – 2020
50 Years of Excellence
Lumen Christi Catholic School was founded in 1968 as two Jackson Catholic Parishes and Schools, St. John’s and St. Mary’s, consolidated to build a new, state of the art facility, Lumen Christi High School.
While the world has changed again and again since that first day in 1968, some things have not changed all. Lumen Christi still produces highly capable and confident graduates who go on to leave an indelible mark on the world. These men and women have brought their faith, ideals, and foundations with them, carrying the “Light of Christ” far beyond our campus and community.
Lumen Christi Catholic School educates students of all faiths in a safe, nurturing Christ-centered environment.
Guided by our Catholic Tradition, we provide the highest quality education and empower students to excel spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally. We inspire them to reach their full potential and be the Light of Christ in this life and for eternity.
