We Are Listening

Being an accredited school matters greatly to us.  Achieving the high standards of being accredited by National Lutheran School Accreditation and Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association is time and energy well-spent.  Read the letter sharing results from a recent survey and the steps we are taking this academic year to help us in our mission in Building Christian Leaders.

Stand Firm in Faith and Love

Our school year is off to an amazing start.  The building is full of energetic young people taking on the challenges of their academic schedule, honing their skills in sports and fine arts, and building relationships centered in Christ.  The theme verse for this academic year is “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.  Let all that you do be done in love.”  1 Corinthians 16:13-14. 

While the daily routine provides many opportunities for students and faculty to lift each other up in love, Wednesday morning Chapel services shares His love to us through scripture, singing, and fellowship in worship.  You are welcome to join us at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday mornings or watch the Chapel message on our Facebook page broadcast around 10:45 a.m.
