Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12: 1-2
West Lutheran High School is a private, Lutheran high school serving students and their families in grades 9-12.
Mission and Philosophy
The mission of West Lutheran High School is to use the Word of God to prepare youth as Disciples of Christ by developing spiritual, intellectual, and social skills for dedicated service to their Savior.
We believe God has given parent(s) the primary responsibility for the spiritual, mental, emotional, and social growth of their children. West Lutheran High School was established to assist parent(s) in fulfilling their God-given role by providing a program of unified Christian training for youth.
Christian training at West Lutheran High School is based solely on the Word of God in the Bible. In 2 Timothy 3:15-17 the Apostle Paul says to his student, Timothy, “and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that all God’s people may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
As the Apostle Paul states, God’s Word alone can work faith in the hearts of his people for eternal salvation. Likewise, when Paul states that Scripture “thoroughly equips” God’s people for every good work, he means that God’s Word alone has the power to fully prepare God’s people for the tasks He puts in front of us in this life. For these reasons, God’s Word must permeate all teaching and learning at West Lutheran High School. Daily religion classes and chapel and homeroom devotions give our students the opportunity to read, learn, and take God’s Word to heart and allows the Holy Spirit to work and nurture faith in the hearts of our students. All courses at West Lutheran are taught from a biblical perspective and all programs and activities are designed to prepare our youth to become dedicated servants for Christ.
West Lutheran offers academic programs for students at all learning levels and equips students with knowledge and skills necessary to enter the workforce or the military, continue their education at secular and private colleges and universities, and study for full-time ministry after high school. West Lutheran strives for academic excellence, which is essential in training students to be life-long learners, effective witnesses for Christ, and faithful stewards of the gifts God has given them.
West Lutheran has been accredited by the Minnesota Non-public School Accrediting Association (MNSAA), a nationally recognized accreditation organization, since the year 2000.
