Celebrating National Lutheran Schools Week

Calvary Lutheran High School is one of many Lutheran schools in mid-Missouri that embraces the ministry of proclaiming and celebrating God’s work in and out of the classroom.  We thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children we serve.  We are excited to share Jesus’ amazing love with children and their families.  National Lutheran Schools Week allows us to join with Lutheran schools on a national level to proclaim these great blessings within the communities we serve.

 

Academic Success Begins With PREParation

The Survive & Thrive experience begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch provided on January 19th.  Please contact the school office by January 18th if you are interested in attending.

High School is an adventure and a journey – a very important one.  CLHS’s PREP Day is a simulated high school day, where 7th and 8th graders will experience a high school campus setting.  Whether you have already made a decision on which high school to attend, or if you are still reviewing your options, this day will introduce you to many facets of secondary education.

At Survive & Thrive you will:

  • Choose a sample schedule
  • Experience “mini” high school classes
  • Review ACT prep materials
  • Receive college admissions information
  • Learn secrets to success
  • ….and more!

Early Registration Opportunity

In an effort to help us prepare for the upcoming 2017-2018 academic year, Calvary is initiating an early registration opportunity.  Enrollment applications received before March 1st require a $100 tuition deposit.  After March 1st enrollment will consist of a $100 tuition deposit plus a $100 registration fee.  This new direction will help tremendously in anticipating the needs for staffing and classroom materials for Calvary students.
