Lutheran Schools

Integrating Faith and Academics from Pre-K to Grade 8

Lutheran High School

 

Concordia Academy, located at Immanuel Lutheran in Wichita, is opening 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. Currently enrollment is open for 9th and 10th grades. Classes begin 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 14 K-8 schools throughout the state in the following locations: Alma, Atchison, 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 2,300 early childhood centers and preschools throughout the country, providing faith-based learning and care to children ranging in age from infant/toddler to five.

In the Kansas District, there are 44 early childhood programs, 13 of which are associated with K-8 schools. The other 32 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.
