Looking for a great choice within Northeast Ohio for parochial schools? Private schools? Christian schools? Religious schools? If so, look to the many Lutheran schools in the greater Cleveland area.
Lutheran schools provide a wide range of quality education programs that serve every age: preschool toddler, kindergarten child, elementary student, teen youth (middle school/junior high years), and young adult. Classes typically reflect a small student-to-teacher ratio, with an emphasis on individualized learning and development, caring assistance, and personal guidance. The curriculum is wide-ranging, including mathematics, science, phonics, literacy, grammar, accelerated reading, literature and language arts, social studies, fine and applied arts, gifted programs, independent study, and special projects. Our secondary schools provide a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, as well as diverse vocational training. Lutheran schools receive accreditation from the National Accreditation Commission of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
CHRIST IS OUR CENTER
Jesus Christ is at the center of all that we do. This extends beyond weekly chapel sessions and Bible-based lessons, sermons, and themes to incorporating prayer and God’s Word into daily activities and your children’s lives beyond the classroom. In addition to strong academics, we emphasize your student’s spiritual growth in faith, prayer, Christian fellowship, and knowledge of the Gospel. Our goal is to equip students to become productive citizens and effective disciples, confident in their faith and their salvation. Our teachers recognize their unique ministry as Christian role models, in partnership with parents, families, and churches.
ALL CHRISTIAN FAITHS
Students from many different churches attend Lutheran schools. This has included members of Apostolic, Baptist, Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, and non-denominational churches. Our schools are supported by the LCMS (Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod) and ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) religious church bodies.
