Principal's Message

Welcome to Lakeside Lutheran High School's website. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our ministry to high school students.

Lakeside is a unique high school: everything that we teach bears a distinctive Christian message. Obviously, our religion classes, chapel services, devotions, and prayers are reminders to our students of the Lutheran faith that we share in common. Beyond that, our "secular" classes in mathematics, science, social studies, English, and our many electives, carefully impart the message to our students that Jesus is their Savior who has redeemed them from their sins. In all that we say and do, we strive to preach Christ crucified.
Take a few minutes to explore our website. If you have further questions about our ministry, please contact our school.

On a personal note...

I have served as Lakeside Lutheran's Principal since 2003. Before coming to Lakeside, I served at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School (1993-2003), Winnebago Lutheran Academy (1981-1993), and Bethany Lutheran School, Kenosha (1976-1981). I grew up in LaCrosse, and I graduated from Luther High (Onalaska) in 1972.

My love is serving God's people in ministry. In 2016, I completed 40 years of service in the public ministry. I currently teach Old Testament 2 to 9th graders. My first love is music. I was a choral director at two area Lutheran high schools for a total of 22 years, and I still dabble in music whenever I have the opportunity.
The thing I love most about Lakeside is its people: the students, the parents, the alumni, the faculty and the staff, the supporters, and the people of the federation. In all the places of ministry I have served, the way in which Lakeside's people stand behind the school is unbelievable.
I am married to Nancy (Meyer) and we have two adult children and two grandchildren. Other than music, my outside interests include collecting old hymnbooks and working on my house.
