Our students, armed with Chromebooks for learning, have excelled in the new format. We would like to support you as well. If you own a small business, restaurant or are on the front lines, please let us know. We are putting together a list of our alumni partners and would like to include you in it.

Lutheran South Summer Camps
Are your kids ready to get out of the house? Have them spend their summer at Lutheran South! Throughout summer 2020, we're offering a variety of half-day camps for students in grades K-12.
Whether your child is planning to attend Lutheran South in the coming years or if you are many years away from making a high school decision, spending a week or more on campus in the summer is a great way to see what Lancer life is all about. Explore our camps here.
Shield Society Dinner
More than 130 alumni, donors, and friends of Lutheran South gathered at Third Degree Glass Factory for an appreciation dinner in March. Art students exhibited their work as LS grad, Mike Lorenz '98, detailed how his teacher, Peter Richenburg, inspired him to pursue his passion. Lorenz, now an art teacher at Lutheran North, explained the importance of creative thinking and thanked alumni and donors who make it possible for all students to receive a Lutheran education.
