Health Class

Lutheran High School is offering health summer classes this summer! Incoming freshmen and current students may choose this option to complete this graduation requirement over the summer to open up more time during the school year for a study hall or to pursue other electives.

All health summer class students must sign up for a Technology Orientation when registering for the course. Students will learn how to navigate Canvas (Learning Management System) and access their student email. At least one parent is encouraged to attend.


All students must attend a mandatory student orientation. Dates for orientation are June 8th and 9th from 10am-11am.

Course Description

This project-based course is designed to motivate students to want the fullness of life God has designed for us in our total person. It strives to give some tools to enable this to happen and prevent the death and misery associated with the main causes of death, disease and dysfunction in America in the 21st century. Health analyzes many decisions that affect the whole person from the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual aspects of our being. We see life on earth as inextricably woven into our relationship to our all-wise, almighty, sovereign, creator God and His plan for us as His own.
