Our School

Discover Faith Lutheran

Our mission is Everyone prepared!  Everyone saved!  Faith is the largest Lutheran school in the United States and the largest non-public school in the state of Nevada. This year, we serve 1,900 students in grades 6-12.

I have great respect for the parents who choose to send their children to our school. The financial sacrifices they make to ensure their children are in an exemplary school are admirable. Our parents realize that the investment they make in their child's spiritual, academic, and extra-curricular lives will have an impact that will last a lifetime - and into eternity. Faith Lutheran is a safe, outstanding school. We are not simply a private school; we are intentionally a CHRISTian school. Daily, students learn about and experience the love and grace that God has for us through our Savior Jesus Christ.

100 percent of our high school's graduating Class of 2017 are in college; 93% of them are in four year colleges and universities. Together, the Class of 2017 was accepted into 204 different colleges and universities including Concordia University, University of Alabama, Baylor, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Boston University, NYU, Loyola Marymount, Penn State, Carnegie Mellon, UCLA, USC, Colorado School of Mines, Pepperdine, Rutgers, Purdue, TCU, Colorado, SMU, Syracuse, Fordham, Oregon, Notre Dame, Marquette, LSU, Tennessee, UC-Irvine, and Arizona  - just to name a few. The Class of 2017 secured MORE THAN 8.5 MILLION DOLLARS IN COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS. In the past five years, Faith graduates have been accepted into a staggering 423 different colleges and universities. The average ACT score for the Class of 2017 was 24.7. Our SAT averages for the Class of 2017 were 580 in Evidenced Based Reading and Writing and 580 in Mathematics. 36 Honors and 19 Advanced Placement (AP) courses strengthen our college-prep curriculum. In grades 6, 7, and 8 our Middle School boasts Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) scores in the 90th percentile compared to other schools nationwide. Advanced classes bolster a rigorous curriculum. More than 80% of our middle school students make Faith Lutheran their high school of choice; that seamless transition allows us to serve students and families for up to seven years.

We believe that student involvement on campus after school is a vital part of the Faith Lutheran experience. Our middle school offers several drama performances each year, choir, band, handbells, football, volleyball, cross country, cheerleading, dance, wrestling, basketball, track, soccer, baseball, softball, golf, tennis, and lacrosse. Our high school offers choir, band, handbells, drama, football, volleyball, cross country, golf, cheerleading, dance, tennis, soccer, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball, golf, track, swimming, and lacrosse. Additionally, many clubs and activities, which are located under the "Student Life" tab on our homepage, exist for our Middle School and High School students. There is indeed something for everyone at Faith Lutheran.

While stats are impressive, it's the stories of the lives that have been changed, enriched, and blessed that inspire families from around the valley to attend Faith Lutheran this year. We love welcoming new families into the Faith Family!

We invite you to visit our dynamic campus at any time. We fulfilled another promise in our BUILD FAITH capital campaign as ten new classrooms were built this summer and are ready for our students.  Included in these new classrooms are permanent homes for our Film & Broadcast Academy and the WCG Academy of Business & Entrepreneurship.  Our strategic plan in the next twenty years our master plan calls for the vacation of Homestretch Drive and adding an aquatic center, tennis courts, STEM building, auditorium, office building, and new middle school building.  Yet, if in a hundred years from now the campus still looks as we picture it today in the master plan, we will have, in a sense, failed.  But if future generations, based on needs we know nothing of now, physically alter this campus to better prepare and save people so that Faith Lutheran is a vital and dynamic force in the Las Vegas Valley, we will have succeeded well beyond our wildest dreams.  In the meantime, we will continue to build spaces and places for adults and kids to do their best work.

God has richly blessed us since our beginning in 1979. If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. These are indeed exciting times to be a part of Faith Lutheran. We have deep respect for our school's history and thank God for those who have gone before us as it is on their broad shoulders that we stand today, yet we firmly believe that our best years still lie ahead and look forward to God's continued grace on this place.

God bless you, and God bless Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School!

  • Philosophy

    Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School has as its guiding principle Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Faith Lutheran, in clearly proclaiming the Good News of the Gospel, holds true the historic tenets of Faith alone, Grace alone, and Scripture alone as explained in God’s Word and in the Lutheran Confessions. Faith Lutheran is dedicated to offering high quality educational experiences to those who acknowledge Christ as their Risen Savior, as well as those who do not yet know the Lord.
  • Vision:

    Faith Lutheran is the standard of excellence in Christian education.

    Family
    Academics
    Innovation
    Truth
    High-Achievement


    FAMILY: At Faith, we care for students from the first time they step on campus and welcome them as important members of the Faith Family. We value each one for who they are and for what they will become.  We accept each one as an important member of the Body of Christ. Likewise, we care for each parent, faculty and staff member and hold in high regard their vital role in our community.

    ACADEMICS: At Faith, we promise caring teachers who serve as mentors who guide our students through a rigorous and challenging college prep curriculum with high expectations.  The multitude of student focused opportunities provide rich learning inside and outside the classroom to thoroughly prepare our students for the next level.

    INNOVATION: At Faith, we provide resources and tools for our students to solve problems.  We do not stand still; instead we continually seek to look at school differently to give students the mindset to try new things.  We are not afraid to fail in our pursuit of excellence.

    TRUTH: At Faith, we shepherd students to understand the grace freely given by God, and to know Him personally through Jesus Christ.  His Word does not change and serves as our standard in all things.  We are unwavering in our passion to share Christ’s amazing love with the Faith Family.

    HIGH-ACHIEVEMENT: At Faith, we encourage students, faculty, and staff to use their God given gifts to honor God in the classroom, community and world and on the court, stage, and field.  We believe continually being stretched to reach a standard of excellence accelerates personal growth in our community.  Finally, we believe excellence is a journey, not a destination.
