What We Believe

Why Christian Ed?

A Christian Education is valuable beyond small class sizes, opportunities for involvement, and personal relationships with teachers and coaches. The goal of many Christian schools is to prepare students to continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus far beyond high school and be well equipped to explain and defend their faith. The importance of this faith preparation is valuable far beyond academic preparation for college and careers.

Theology Classes

LuHi students take a Theology class each year they are at LuHi.

  • Freshman Year: Study of the Old Testament
  • Sophomore Year: Study of the New Testament
  • Junior Year: Study of World Religions and Apologetics
  • Senior Year: Study of Worldviews and Preparation for Life After Graduation
Theology is a central aspect of academics and personal growth at Lutheran High School. Classes are often discussion-based, allowing students to share their faith with one another and learn from their peers while asking important questions to continue growing in their relationship with Christ.

Chapel

The LuHi student body gathers for chapel every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. For 25 minutes, we praise God together and celebrate our salvation through Jesus Christ. During chapel, we listen to a message delivered by a staff member, a guest speaker from the community, or by students. Chapel is a central time for students and staff to worship together as a community and be in the Word.

Service Hours

Lutheran High students are required to fulfill 20 service hours per year. One of the primary goals of service hours is to help students grow and develop into being lifelong servants, while learning to be the hands and feet of Jesus. We encourage students to serve with organizations and causes that they are passionate about. LuHi also offers many opportunities for students to serve with the school, from being a student ambassador to helping at summer camps. Students will use MobileServe to record their service hours and receive a code to join Lutheran High School. Service hours must be completed by May 1st every school year and are facilitated by the Theology department.

Our mission at Lutheran High School is to be an academically excellent school that God uses to transform the lives of others through Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus knows and loves us, and therefore we can, in turn, know and love our students. The love and salvation extended to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus is the same salvation we proclaim daily in our halls and classrooms.

We abide by the core tenants of “grace alone,” faith alone,” and “Scripture alone” found in Lutheran Theology and doctrine. The Colorado Lutheran High School Association is part of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, a mission-oriented and Bible-based denomination built on “the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone” (Ephesians 2:20).

College Prep

LuHi is a college prep school that focuses on preparing well-rounded students for the future. College prep begins early for our students to alleviate some of the stress and pressure of college admissions. Students will take the practice ACT and SAT during their freshman, sophomore, and junior years to familiarize themselves with the test structure and get ready for the official test. Juniors will also receive college test prep through Revolution Prep to equip them with test-taking strategies. Throughout their time at Lutheran High, students will use tools such as Naviance to build their resumes, plan college visits, and utilize career assessment tools.

In addition to preparing students academically, LuHi places a high value on developing the whole person, equipping them with real-life skills such as effective communication, time management, and conflict resolution.

Dual Credit

Lutheran High offers a variety of dual credit classes for students interested in earning college credit while in high school. With dual credit, students will receive a college transcript while taking the class at LuHi with our certified teachers. For a small fee, dual credit courses familiarize students with college-level coursework and academia. We partner with universities such as Colorado Christian University, Concordia University Nebraska, Concordia University Wisconsin, and Grand Canyon University. Dual credit coursework through these colleges is typically accepted as transfer credits at about 98% of accredited universities.

AP & Honors Classes

Lutheran High offers 24 honors classes and 5 AP classes including:

  • AP Literature
  • AP Language
  • AP Government
  • AP Calc AB
  • AP Calc BC

LuHi has a unique view of AP classes: we don't think it is a good indicator of a school's academic rigor. Although there are pros and cons to AP classes, our goal is to make sure students are set up for success after high school.

Here are two resources that help explain AP classes:

College Advisors

Students are paired with a college advisor during their junior year at LuHi, a teacher on staff who follows a small group of students during their last two years of high school. During the college search process, college advisors are a great resource and will meet with students throughout the year to check in on their progress and how they are feeling about the future. Advisors will help students research schools and majors, read essays for scholarships and applications, and encourage students as they move on to the next chapter. They are also an excellent resource for looking at other options for life after graduation.

Access

Access enables and bolsters the success of LuHi students with a learning difference as spelled out in their IEP or 504 plan. 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.
