About Us

On your Mark...CLHS Mission


 Our mission is to prepare young people for lifelong  service to Christ. Our purpose is to provide a Christian academic and  extra-curricular education to help students discover and develop their  relationship with Jesus and the purpose God has for them so they might  dedicate their lives to giving God all praise and glory.  

  Our philosophy is that students come to CLHS from a  variety of backgrounds, but share the need to be accepted by self and  others, to articulate and achieve goals in life and to grow in their  personal faith. As a Christian educational institution of the Lutheran  Church-Missouri Synod, CLHS is privileged to provide a Christian  environment in which the needs of the church, family and its students  can be met. In this environment students are given opportunities to  practice both Christian, family and civic responsibilities and to  experience a broad, yet challenging and structured, academic and  extra-curricular program.
