Lutheran School Association

The LSA strive to bring an absolutely comprehensive growth experience to our students.
Our goals encompass our student's progress academically, of course, but also spiritually, socially, and intra-personally.
Our aim goes far beyond our students' school careers; we intend to bless their entire lives, their eternities, and the lives and eternities of their children and future generations after that.
Through this growth, they will be ready, willing, and able to impact the world.
Here at the LSA, our primary goal is that our students meet Jesus every day: in prayer, in study of God's Word, in class devotions and corporate worship experiences, and in the love of their teachers and classmates.
