Motivated by the love of Jesus, Lakeside Lutheran High School partners with families to educate, encourage, and equip students for life and for eternity.
Among the objectives that pertain directly to students are:
- To maintain a curriculum that has as its focus the inspired, inerrant Word of God
- To cultivate a curriculum that produces students who desire to reach their full potential
- To create and maintain a school climate that is consistent with God's will
- To help students understand that their faith is relevant in life and their individual gifts should be used for lifelong ministry in their homes, vocations, churches and communities
- To promote Christian family life
- To hold steadily before our students the opportunity for full time called service in the church
Lakeside Lutheran High School is a Christian ministry. Chief among all teachings of Scripture is the grace of God in Christ. Lakeside Lutheran and all its students, teachers, and staff need to grasp in faith this truth that we are justified before God by grace and grace alone. Growing out of this relationship based on grace is the sanctified life of the children of God. As a ministry of the Church, Lakeside Lutheran seeks to forge a relationship with parents and students that compels growth in godly living.
Philosophy of Ministry and Discipline
LLHS policies are rooted in God’s will. God gave us a Savior because He loves us. He gave us commandments for Christian living for the same reason. Obedience to His will is an act of worship which also brings blessings to the Christian Church as we spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
Certain areas of student behavior and conduct receive special attention in the student handbook, available below and in printed in each student planner. Every student and parent should be aware that a student handbook cannot address every situation of student discipline. Not every “do” and “don’t” will be listed. A Christian is guided by the will of God and willingly receives admonition and instruction when his words or actions offend others or disrupt the ministry of Lakeside. Lakeside reserves the right to revise policies, amend rules, or alter regulations at any time in accordance with the best interests of this ministry.
Because each of us is a disciple of Christ all day long, Lakeside Lutheran’s ministry will sometimes reach beyond campus. At extracurricular events, while traveling to and from school, and even during free time, students and faculty either live as disciples or deny the faith through their actions and words. Each disciple seeks to grow in Christian living at home and school, and we need to be held accountable as disciples of Christ.

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. This We Believe
is a publication that provides information on the beliefs espoused by Lakeside Lutheran High School (see below). 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.
Those interested in Lakeside Lutheran High School who hold church affiliations other than the WELS or ELS should first plan to meet with Lakeside administration in order to carefully evaluate the school’s mission and beliefs. When unity in spirit and purpose is clearly communicated by the enrollee and family, applications are encouraged and readily considered. Biblical fellowship principles will be communicated and applied when necessary.
