Greater Impact is our capital campaign to expand to serve more students. In 2022, a $6,200,000 educational wing was completed. Next, a larger gymnasium is needed for athletics and to accommodate our much larger student body for weekly chapels. The current gym has bleacher seating for 770 which is inadequate for our 925 students.
The Ron Brandhorst Tuition Angel Program is our ongoing annual appeal. This year's goal of $260,000 will fund need-based tuition assistance granted to students. The aim is to help enable as many families as possible to afford an outstanding Christian education. We can reach this crucial goal with participation from immediate families, extended families, alumni, supporters, community investors, ministries, and churches.
Recruit & Retain Rockstars
The RRR Fund (Recruit and Retain Rockstars) is a recent initiative to enable us to recruit the very best teachers to LuHi as enrollment continues to grow rapidly. "Rockstars" is a metaphor for shining stars in any profession, the best of the best. Thanks to our growth, we can recruit exceptional teachers to join our outstanding faculty. Over the past three years, we added ten new full-time teachers and ten part-time experts to teach specialty electives, including computer graphics, pre-engineering, astrophysics, business studies, photography, and ceramics. Next year, we will need to add even more teachers as we anticipate increasing enrollment by over 10%. We are seeking $110,000 this school year to fund this initiative.
The Tapestry Society comprises supporters who inform the school or association that it is a beneficiary in an estate plan or will. By telling the school in advance, you can tell us what you would like your final gift to go towards (facilities, specific programs, tuition assistance, etc.). Tapestry Society members will receive a periodic newsletter with stories about how these final gifts make an amazing impact in this ministry to students.

Treyben Miller,, Class of 2022
All of the courses I selected for my first semester at Clemson are advanced courses and I feel that I am already ahead of my classmates. I feel comfortable, even knowledgeable in the material we are learning and because of that I can even help others in my class with their work. I feel strongly that I would not be able to be where I am at in my math skills without Ms. Hoehne's excellent teaching as well as her graciousness in my times of failure. Her teaching is just a reflection of my experience with Lutheran high school as a whole. All of my teachers had a clear expectation of their students giving their God-given best but I feel like Lutheran is set apart because you all understand that a student's best might look different from one day to another. I left high school feeling prepared for college, but I now know that time at Lutheran gave me all of the tools I need to be successful here if I use them. I continue to feel encouraged from my time at Lutheran because even though I graduated, I know you are all still cheering me on and want me to succeed. I am so grateful to you and all of the staff at Lutheran for such a wonderful experience throughout my time there.
Lutheran High School wants to see all the students succeed. All the teachers want to help you whenever they can. They are there for you in your highs and your lows. They make high school seem like you are part of one big family.
Lutheran is a truly wonderful environment, with an impressive culture. I think that there are three main things that make our culture so special, One: our teachers are incredible. They are so dedicated to their students. Not only are they great at teaching, but they care about each student individually. Two: mindset. God given best is what is expected of you at LuHi. It is understood that you won't be good at everything, but it is expected that you do your best. Three: our culture all centers around Jesus. That's the biggest factor that makes LuHi so special, that Jesus is the cornerstone and the building block of this school.
Since my first day at Lutheran, I have felt the uplifting Christian culture. Students and staff are incredibly supportive and create a strong sense of community. I am grateful for receiving a challenging yet enjoyable educational experience in an extremely positive environment. I will never forget how my friends and teachers at Lutheran have impacted the trajectory of my life.
Lutheran High School has prepared me both academically and spiritually through the immersive and interactive classes led by teachers who consistently demonstrate their desire to help, encourage, and build relationships with their students. I love that LuHi goes all in for its students. I can truly say that all of the teachers are truly invested in being the best educator that they can and in knowing you personally. Yet, my favorite thing about Lutheran is that everything is Christ centered. While you do not have to believe in God to come here, the teachers and faculty are more than willing to dive into those tough conversations regarding faith and will continually point you towards Him.
The skills I learned in Lights Academy such as deep work and researching have been a staple in my college life. The questioning process done in Lights for each project planning document has been really helpful for research papers! I was so lucky to have been in Lights Academy and been able to learn from Mr Black and others in the class!
