Lutheran High head of school
The Saints are marching into a new academic year elevating the mission of Lutheran High. The mission to prepare students for a Christian life while providing academic excellence has two components, one of which separates our school community from any public school district.
We are similar to many districts in seeking out academic excellence and providing for students the college ready opportunities they will need to be successful. Our college prep curriculum including Advanced Placement and dual credit course work has propelled graduating seniors forward with as many as 30 college credits and the possibility of college sophomore status.
But the mission of Lutheran High also reveals a drive to prepare our students to be Christians who are ready to walk into a life riddled with challenges, tough decisions and great opportunities. Through this part of our mission we challenge our students to project a servant leader persona that is ready to listen, seek out truth, be open to creativity, and move forward in a direction that ultimately cares for people in a workplace, community or family.
Teaching our students to become Christian leaders begins with practice and application. We intentionally guide our students through opportunities in worship, social interactions, service, classroom engagement and outward respect as key components in the growth of a servant leader. We wrap this intentional Christian walk into the classroom and all extracurricular activities as teaching moments to grow and prepare. A new start is always a fresh start.
The community of students, teachers, parents and sponsors of Lutheran High is ready to continue its 40-plus years of excellence. Getting new starts, continuing good traditions and aspiring to new levels of excellence will continue to be the character of Lutheran High. God bless the Saints and all schools preparing for another year.
