School Reviews

Our daughter is in Middle school at the Lutheran Academy, she is thriving at this school and will be well-prepared for high School. The high level academic standards have resulted is well above grade average test scores and the positive environment is truly helping her develop into the very best version of herself. I only wish this school had a high-school program.
