High School

About us

Faith Lutheran High School (FLHS) is a unique college-preparatory institution. What makes us special is our Christian worldview, intense classical program of study, committed students, and outstanding teachers.

FLHS is owned and operated by Faith Lutheran Church, a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS), yet is not exclusively for Lutherans. FLHS is open to members of other Christian churches as well. In fact, about half of our students in preschool through high school are members of other churches.

Our curriculum is thoroughly steeped in Christian beliefs and is taught from a Christian point of view. However, we do not exclusively use Christian textbooks. We believe high school is the time to begin to introduce students to theories, ideas, beliefs, and ideologies which they will encounter outside of the Christian community. We strive to explain and evaluate these based on God’s Word.
