Lutheran Elementary Schools and High Schools

Here is a summary of reasons why you should send your child to a Lutheran grade school:

  • are driven by a commitment to the Gospel
    and focused on a mission of bringing hope and healing to students and their families
  • are governed by board members who clearly understand their roles
    and focus on the vision and board policies that effectively govern the operation of the school
  • meet or exceed state and national academic standards
    at all grade levels
  • help to develop a minimum of 30 developmental assets in children
  • have educators who model visionary leadership
    They practice stewardship of resources, build up others and empathize with others
  • have educators who model servant leadership
    Do those served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? (Robert Greenleaf)
  • have educators who model spiritual leadership
    They study God’s Word, share their personal faith story, apply Law and Gospel appropriately, exhibit a passion for ministry, act courageously, equip God’s people for service, care for others, demonstrate integrity, and pray
