Why choose Lutheran High School?
Choosing a high school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you can make for their education. The high school that your student attends will have an enormous influence on whether he or she goes on to college, immediately joins the work force, or decides to join the military. It will also help shape their capabilities and potential and prepare them for what they decide to do. Perhaps even more important, the high school that you choose for your student will help develop their character. It will help form what kind of person they will become.
