Become a Lancer

Find your place here

Welcome to Lutheran High School South, home of the Lancers. Lutheran South is a co-educational, private, Christian school serving 400 students in grades 9 through 12 who live in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and surrounding areas. 

At LuSo, we blend a strong college prep curriculum with opportunities for co-curricular, service and athletic activities to help you mature and grow as a young Christian. We’re large enough to provide many different opportunities for you to explore, yet small enough for you to find your niche. Together with your church and family, we help you grow in your faith, develop your strengths and meet the challenge of new opportunities.

St. Louis is rich in private high school options. The challenge is finding the best fit for you.

Start Your Journey to Lutheran South

You're home, we're home, let's Zoom. We would like to meet you. The best way to see our school is in person, but spring 2020 will be a bit different.
Here's how we're able to connect with you virtually:
1. Call or email Director of Admissions, Katy Schmitt,, 314-973-8885 cell. Let's talk about your student and how we can best serve your family.
2. Schedule a Zoom meeting with Katy Schmitt and other faculty or staff who can answer your questions about our curriculum, athletics, clubs and activities. Learn what makes Lutheran South unique. 
When choosing a high school, it is important to not only consider the school's academics, but also the social and emotional fit. Lutheran South is a school where you're known and loved. 
For 7th graders interested in visiting Lutheran South, we will begin scheduling shadow visits in August 2020.
The best way to evaluate if a school is a good fit for you is to visit during the school day. Shadow days can easily be scheduled online. Not ready to spend the day? Let's meet and we'll give you a glimpse. Experience LuSo for yourself. Learn about our history, our culture, our program, and find out if Lancer life is for you.
The Lutheran High School Association Board of Trustees realizes family finances vary. Over 50% of Lutheran South students receive financial aid in one way or another. Because each family is unique, we hope you take the time to meet with us and apply individually. Assistance is available through scholarship and need-based support.
Applications for the 2020-2021 school year are accepted beginning September 15, 2019, with financial aid applications opening mid-October. Early acceptance letters are mailed in December.  There is no application fee before November 15.  Our application process is managed online, and we're here to help you every step of the way.
