Lutheran High School South Photo #1 - Our college-prep curriculum in a Christ-centered environment prepares each of our students for many options and choices for college. Ninety-eight percent of our students continue their education in a college or university.
Lutheran High School South excels in providing Christian education in the Lutheran tradition for young men and women in grades 9-12.
Our Christ-centered environment and challenging college prep curriculum help each student learn, grow, and prepare for college as well as prepare for a life anchored in faith in Christ and dedicated to service in His name.
We're large enough to offer many opportunities for students to grow and excel, but small enough for students to participate in many different activities.
