Lutheran South Academy exists to secure the immediate future of our students by preparing them academically for their college years, to secure their extended future by preparing them to be Christian leaders as adults, and to secure their eternal future by developing their relationship with the Lord and Savior.
Lutheran South Academy believes in educating the whole child. We encourage our students to strive for excellence — excellence in academics, excellence in athletics and extra-curricular activities, excellence in faith and character, excellence in every aspect of their lives. This standard of excellence is what will secure their future. To accomplish this, we ask our students to "SAIL" with us as they focus on four specific areas of their lives:
Lutheran South Academy’s main goal is for all students to develop a saving relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The ideal graduate will not only experience this personal relationship, but will also be a Christian model and witness to the world. Graduates will live life abundantly while assured of their eternal salvation.
The academic potential of every student will be met while attending Lutheran South Academy. Understanding that there are a wide variety of academic abilities represented, Lutheran South Academy will provide a high quality academic program to meet the needs of everyone from the average student to the National Merit finalist.
The key to a well-rounded education is involvement in school activities outside of the formal curriculum. Lutheran South Academy will provide experiences for its students, ranging from fine arts to athletics, which will improve skills and increase social maturity. Our goal is for students at LSA to be involved, happy, and feel like important members of the LSA family.
Leadership must be taught, modeled and practiced. The ideal graduate of Lutheran South Academy will provide Christian leadership in the home, church, community and workplace for the next generation. Our society needs leaders with strong moral courage to stand up for what is right in our changing world.
Every day, God gives us the opportunity to live, to learn, and to love. He challenges those of us who follow Christ to do so by developing a biblical worldview and to put our faith into action. LSA follows ten faith statements of The Lutheran Church - MIssouri Synod as a template through which we strive to become all God calls us to be.
