Outstanding school and education. My son was able to compete at a high level in 3 sports at this school. The staff is caring and concerned for each child's future. I am extremely happy that we found Lutheran South Academy and that my son was able to attend. I would strongly recommend this school to anyone K-12!

Lutheran South Academy is a fantastic K-12 school has been an AMAZING experience for our 3 children! We have been at LSA for 14 years and could not be more thankful for the strong foundation that our kids have received in both academics and spirituality. Our children have always felt safe, secure, and loved by the LSA staff and community. In addition to an excellent education and outstanding facilities, our children have been able to participate and experience a wide variety of athletics, fine arts, and even service opportunities. At all three levels (lower, middle, and high school), the staff at LSA are caring, high quality, service minded professionals that are committed to the families of LSA. We are proud to say WE ARE PIONEERS and our children will always remember this school with love and respect!
