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 1,700 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 a CHRISTian school. Daily, students learn about and experience the love and grace that God has for us through our Savior Jesus Christ.
90 percent of our high school’s Class of 2015 are in college; 84% of them are in four year colleges and universities. Our top three in class rank chose Princeton, Stanford, and Duke. Together, the Class of 2015 was accepted into 245 different colleges and universities including Concordia, Brown, Auburn, Baylor, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Boston College, NYU, Loyola Marymount, Penn State, Cal Berkley, UCLA, USC, Colorado School of Mines, Pepperdine, Princeton, Purdue, TCU, Colorado, Stanford, Duke, Syracuse, Michigan, Harvard, Seton Hall, Oregon, Notre Dame, Marquette, LSU, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, Arizona, and Pomona – just to name a few. The Class of 2015 secured MORE THAN 8 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 2015 was 24.1. Our SAT averages for the Class of 2015 were 547 in Critical Reading, 548 in Math, and 539 in Writing. Honors and 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. 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 look to the future with great excitement as plans to expand our campus are already underway.
God bless you, and God bless Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School!
