This week marks National Lutheran Schools Week in The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, providing the network of over 2,000 LCMS preschools, elementary schools, high schools, and colleges with the opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work among us.

Lutheran schools are renowned for providing top-notch education and serving as excellent nurturers of individuals who passionately bear witness to God’s love. At every educational level, Lutheran institutions instill and embody the Gospel message of God’s salvation through Christ. Here at CUW, this unwavering focus on the Gospel is an integral part of our identity. The impact of this mission is evident not only in our feeder schools but also in the exceptional students they send to our campus.

Below is a selection of CUW students who proudly hail from local Lutheran high schools. In celebration of National Lutheran Schools Week, they’ve taken the opportunity to express their love for Concordia and share compelling reasons why fellow alumni from their alma mater might find Concordia to be a fitting choice.
