Christ Lutheran School Photo #1 - Christ Lutheran School Lutheran Schools Week!
Christ Lutheran Schools offers a well-rounded Christian education to students from the entire community. Students perform above national averages in all subject areas and have many opportunities to go beyond the norm in a variety of areas. In addition to the basics of religion, reading, math, science, social studies, literature, English, and spelling we offer Spanish in the upper grades, and band and choir in grades 5-8. We also participate in an annual spelling bee, science fair, the National Geographic Bee, and the National History Bee. All students have art, physical education, and music every week. Our students may also participate in volleyball, basketball, track and field, golf, and cross country teams with other private schools through the Albuquerque Christian Athletic Association. In addition we have a student council that works on projects for the school, a Destion Imagination group and some other after school clubs.

School Notes

  • Christ offers small, single-grade classrooms in each grade.  Our students in grades 6-8 operate in a middle-school environment, switching classrooms for math, science, social studies, literature, and English.  They also have a fine-arts elective, selecting between band, choir, and art.  More than half of our graduates take honors and AP classes in high school.  One of our graduates was the Valedictorian at Sandia High School in 2014.
  • After high school our graduates have gone on to colleges and universities all over the country including Brown and Columbia from the Ivy League, Regis University in Denver, George Mason University, Bulter University, the University of Southern California, Oregon State, Colorado State University, and many more.  One graduate is a veterinarian, and another is working on his doctorate in engineering at New Mexico State University.
