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 more than 500 students in grades 9 through 12 from 57 different zip codes. 

At Lutheran South, students are more than their ACT score, their place on a team, or their chair in the band. Students are reminded daily that their true identity is as a child of God. Lutheran South sees the big picture – a picture of faith formation combined with academic rigor. The coed school prides itself on providing leadership opportunities for students in worship, in the classroom, and in service to others.

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.
Please contact our Admissions Team at 314-833-1088 for more information or to set up a visit.
The best way to evaluate if Lutheran South is a good fit for you is to visit during the school day. We offer shadow visits for prospective students and private family meetings with our Head of School and Admissions Team. Let us share the LuSo story. Learn about our history, our culture, our program, and find out if Lancer life is for you. 
We realize 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 time to meet with us and apply. Assistance is available through scholarships and need-based support. Financial aid applications for the 2023-2024 school year open on October 1.
