The story of Living Science begins with our founders, Lance and Penney Davis. Born and raised in southern Africa, both Mr. and Mrs. Davis taught in the public school system in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) until receiving a call from God to move to the United States for further training. After graduating from the Bible college in Maryland, they served as missionaries in Zimbabwe for four years.
On their return to the United States, Mrs. Davis taught science and directed a lab science kit service for the New York State public school system, while Mr. Davis ran his own small business. They relocated to the Atlanta area for a business opportunity in 1993, and Mrs. Davis took a position as a science teacher at a private Christian school.
In 1996, several homeschooling moms asked Mrs. Davis to teach their children science. Upon prayerful consideration, she agreed, and Living Science was born as a science class of twenty students in the basement of their home. Through word of mouth, the program grew, developing discipleship and leadership training and unique traditions stemming from the Davises’ Anglo-African background.
In 2004, by God’s provision through generous contributions of many families, Living Science moved to its current location on a beautiful five-acre campus. The school has continued to grow and now serves more than 200 students from kindergarten through twelfth grade.
