Lutheran SchoolsIntegrating Faith and Academics from Pre-K to Grade 8
Lutheran High School
Concordia Academy, located at Immanuel Lutheran in Wichita, is the first classical Lutheran high school in the Kansas District. Their mission is to “seek to form students in faith, hope, and love, by heeding wisdom and practicing virtue, restoring souls in the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty, according to the Word of God and the Lutheran Confessions.”
Concordia Academy offers a 9th – 12th grade Lutheran liberal arts education. Classes started in August 2022. They are a Recognized Service Organization (RSO) of the LCMS.

Elementary and Middle Schools
The LCMS established its first parish school in Kansas in Leavenworth in 1863, 25 years before the District was formally organized. Today, we have 15 K-8 schools (including two classical schools) throughout the state in the following locations: Alma, Atchison, Basehor, Cheney, Derby, Independence, Leavenworth, Linn, Marysville, Overland Park (2), Shawnee, Topeka, Wichita and Winfield.
Our Lutheran schools are committed to helping students grow spiritually as well as academically. While students work at mastering standard academic subjects, their faith is nurtured through daily teaching and study of God’s Word, worship and prayer, and positive role modeling of Christian faculty and staff.
Early Childhood Centers and Preschools
LCMS congregations and Christian day schools operate more than 1,100 early childhood centers and preschools throughout the country, providing faith-based learning and care to children ranging in age from infants and toddlers to 5-year-olds.
In the Kansas District, there are 43 early childhood programs, 13 of which are associated with K-8 schools. The other 30 are free-standing early childhood ministries, including our newest program.
The Kansas District supports these programs by making regular visits to schools and providing networking opportunities. The District also has an early childhood consultant, Amy Schultz, who promotes connections between program directors and staff in Kansas, assists with questions, and maintains an awareness of issues and best practices in early childhood education.
