For over fifty years, Lutheran High School of Greater New Orleans (LCMS) has been providing education for high school students while emphasizing the values and teachings of our Lord and Savior. We are a stand-alone high school that serves the greater New Orleans area.
Our school is founded on the teachings of the Lutheran Church, but throughout the years, we have shared the message of Jesus Christ to those of other faiths and fellow Lutherans, with a very diverse student body, which includes students from two city parishes of various socioeconomic statuses. Our mission at LHS exists solely by God’s grace …here to provide a quality body, mind, and spirit education to all of its students, enabling them to succeed in college and be exemplary citizens who go forth to Love, Honor, Serve.
Last school year, our school population declined due to the impact of Covid-19. After a hopeful and successful start to our new school year, Hurricane Ida struck. This storm dealt us another blow - one that severely impacted our school building! We have roof damage that is so extensive that most of our classrooms were flooded or received water infiltration. Our HVAC systems were destroyed, and our gas line had to be removed due to a leak. We are determined to open our doors for this school year! Our plan is to close off the 3/4 of the school building that needs major repairs and operate out of the remaining space of the school. We can and will make this work!
As steadfast and dedicated as our school population is, we still need assistance from our faith community and friends. How can you help us? First and foremost, you can pray for our school and us. Secondly, any monetary donation that you can send our way would be greatly appreciated. Donations will be used to replace damaged textbooks and smart boards for the classrooms, school uniforms lost by students, computers, teacher salaries, and tuition subsidies.
Thank you for any assistance you can give us. God’s continued blessings to you.
In His Service,
Nancy Hernandez Principal,
The Students and Staff of Lutheran High School
