Lutheran Schools promote Gospel outreach, foster relationships, and exemplify excellence in Christ-centered education to families in a constantly changing world.

2021 Southeastern District Lutheran Schools Week - March 7 - 13, 2021

The 2021 theme is Sent to Serve - Matthew 20:28 - The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give life as a ransom for many.

National Lutheran Schools Week provides more than 1,900 preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work among us in schools of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.  The National Lutheran Schools week set by the LCMS is Jan 24 - 30, 2021. The Southeastern historically has celebrated Lutheran Schools Week in March.

We thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children we serve. We are most grateful for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love with children and their families.  National Lutheran Schools Week gives us an opportunity to proclaim these great blessings within the communities we serve.
