In 2017, 93% of Faith Lutheran seniors went to a 4-year university.

Playing high school sports is a tremendous experience in which lasting memories and friendships are formed. As seniors end their athletic seasons, many of them seek opportunities to extend these experiences into the collegiate level. They have invested countless hours into becoming better athletes playing a game they love, and they realize the huge impact that competing in college can make on their lives.
