Mayer Lutheran offers an excellent Christ-centered education to high school students and does a great job of preparing them for college and beyond. Students benefit from an emphasis on academic excellence and small class sizes. They also have many opportunities to participate in sports, the arts and additional activities designed to let them grow spiritually as they live out their Christian faith in the community and beyond. The entire campus feels like family!

Our four children attend MLHS, with the youngest graduating in 2013. We found the experience to be rich and fulfilling. Each of our children were blessed to attend and they thrived in college due, in no small part, to the education they received at MLHS. We enthusiastically recommend Mayer Lutheran for all kids looking for a school where they will be nutured, loved, and prepared for their next stage of life!

We sent all three of our children to MLHS and are very glad we did. They received an excellent education--challenging and engaging--in a setting which was very encouraging and supportive: Christian. The extras are great and include: choir, band, athletics, special clubs, like robotics, photography, dance. We have come to view the High School as a part of our family, since we have come to know and love so many others who love and respect this community in Christ.
