For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9
When everyone is a winner, the valuable lessons gained from healthy competition can be lost. While it is good to help everyone feel like a success, and a valued member of society, our school, or our church, competition can be a good thing, too. It can shape you into a confident, resilient person who remembers where worth actually comes from - God’s love for us. Competition is everywhere, including school, sports and the professional world. We have to compete in order to get into college or land a great job. If everyone's a winner all the time, we don’t have a chance to gain experience in what it’s like to lose gracefully, grow from experiences and move on with self-esteem intact. In this article, we explore 5 important values of competition, and how they actually serve to build character more than participation trophies.
By now you’ve probably compiled your summer fun list. Two and a half months can seem too short, but this is one unique summer. You might find yourself with more time on your hands, or you might be recovering with the rest of the world from the darkness of the last four months.

What is Access?
Access enables and bolsters the success of every Lutheran High School student with a learning difference, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or other diagnoses, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In this study-hall-style class, eligible students receive individualized attention and instruction specific to their unique needs. While in Access, students can work on school assignments, study for tests, connect with teachers, and work on strategies to address school-related issues, such as organization, time management, communication, and study skills. And throughout the Access period, the teacher is there for students, with regular check-ins to ensure follow through, troubleshooting, and overall support.
Most of the clubs here at LuHi welcome every student who is interested. National Honor Society (NHS) is an exception. This unique club admits students based on several important criteria, and provides them with opportunities to further develop core areas while attending Lutheran High.
Now I know a lot of you are scared with starting the new school year. For some of you, it’s your freshman year and you’re gonna be here for the next four years. You know, I remember my first day in this town...
Back when you were in high school, you likely counted down the days until you could pick up your yearbook toward the end of the school year. You’d search for pictures of you and your friends, gather signatures, and relive the previous year.
Interests and passions drive all of us toward hobbies, volunteerism and in many cases, careers. That’s why all of us here at LuHi take great care to nurture the passions of our students.
