We are so pleased with Heavenly Host, with its emphasis on providing a Christian education and strong academics. The teachers and administrators truly care about each student and want them to succeed. With the smaller classroom sizes allowing personal attention from teachers, we have seen our child excel in new areas of learning. The Heavenly Host community is like a larger family, and we are grateful to be a part of this school.

My son is currently in the 5th grade at HHLS. My older children also attended HHLS. They started there when the school first opened so I have had a lot of time to observe the school. Heavenly Host is and always has been dedicated to their mission of providing a quality education in a Christ centered atmosphere. The teachers and staff go above and beyond. They offer free tutoring, after school enrichment programs and and an accelerated reading program. I love this school. They are part of my family :)

HHLS is a true blessing for students and their families. The academic focus and achievement is outstanding. The family and Christ focused atmosphere is a positive environment for children to thrive. Without hesitation we choose HHLS for our child to receive the best education and the best environment that provides the best opportunity for success. The staff and teachers are the best. We cannot thank them enough. Highly recommended!

Heavenly Host Lutheran School is a nationally accredited and locally respected school in Putnam County Tennessee. We frequently receive compliments from Cookeville High School about how successfuly our school is at preparing the students for high school. We provide year round enrichment activities(including Art, Debate, Spanish, , as well as sports, music, library, and after school programs. Heavenly Host has a classroom per grade level, computers in every room, and is connected to a church and the pastors. We have the normal school issues, but we deal with them in a Biblical and Christian fashion. We have chapel every Wednesday with the pastor, and welcome those of all faiths.
