In 2017, 93% of Faith Lutheran seniors went to a 4-year university. Our college counselors work hard to make sure that students are applying to universities that are the right fit. However, sometimes a university has an acceptance rate of 5%. This begs the question, "How do selective universities choose their students?" The easiest answer to the question is, "It depends".
Welcome back to school! School is in full swing and we are in the thick of things in October. Esther and I just wanted to check in and give everyone an update.
“Why are we building a Greenhouse?” A skeptical 8th grader asks. The purpose of this greenhouse is bigger than the plants, but rather than getting knee deep in a philosophical discussion about best educational practices with a thirteen year old, I instead reply, “It will have fish...” Based on their reaction, the student is satisfied.

As the Director of Social Norms here at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School, I am passionate about helping our students avoid risky behaviors like drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and sex. This January we have launched our Faith Facts campaign with renewed vigor to involve the entire Faith Family. Faith Facts is a major undertaking that is part of a comprehensive ‘Avoid Risky Behaviors’ program. To summarize the comprehensive approach, I will summarize it in three words ‘Danger, Data, and Divinity”.
We are so pleased to introduce the newest member of the Faith Family - Esther! Esther is a two month old Goldendoodle. She will begin working full time at Faith during the 2018-2019 school year but will be a regular visitor to campus during this training year. I’d like to take a moment to share more information about Esther, how she was “hired”, and what her role at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School will look like.
“Of course you’d send your kids to Christian schools…You and your wife teach at one…”
Yet, our family would fare better financially if we went back to the public school our children were in two years ago. So then, “Why would I send my kids to a Christian school?”
