FAQs

Does Lakeside limit or restrict admission?
Lakeside Lutheran High School offers Christian secondary education to anyone who desires a high school education based upon the Word of God. In light of Acts 10:34-35, “God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right,” Lakeside Lutheran High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin, nor disability, insofar as the administration of its educational policies, scholarship programs, athletic and other school-administered programs are concerned.
 
As a parochial school and non-profit institution, Lakeside Lutheran High School reserves the right to refuse enrollment or to disenroll students whose personal or family’s beliefs or morals conflict with Lakeside’s understanding of the Word of God. No student shall at any time contest or undermine the stated purpose of the school or doctrines of the WELS as revealed in Scripture, in or outside the classroom. No student shall solicit support for religious convictions contrary to those doctrines. A persistent lack of cooperation with the school as it carries out its mission may also result in disenrollment.

So Lakeside Lutheran is a "Bible School"?
In the literal definition of the words, no, we aren’t a Bible School. However, our focus is on the Word of God in everything we do. God’s Word is used in Religion class, chapel devotions and every class is taught in the light of God’s Word. The Law and the Gospel are used to motivate and discipline students. Also, we emphasize that your faith in Christ is lived every minute of every day. Your faith is not just for church or at school.

What service opportunities can I be involved in?
Lakeside has many groups to encourage service to our Savior, school, and community, including but not limited to Bands and Choirs praising God, and National Honor Society and Teens for Christ, who regularly schedule service opportunities. The religion department also facilitates Operation GO, a mission trip program available in the summer months for students 16 and older.

Do I need to bring my own bag lunch every day to school?
You certainly may if you wish. However, Lakeside Lutheran offers two choices of hot lunch each day (see example menus here), made fresh in the school kitchen by our faithful kitchen staff. The meals are homemade every day and have all of the food groups and nutrients that your mom would want you to eat with each meal and that the government requires. Items other than the entree are self-serve to satisfy even large appetites. Families may participate in the Federal Free/Reduced lunch program if eligible.
