This week we are once again celebrating National Lutheran Schools Week, and showing our gratitude to the Lutheran primary schools all over the nation. The preschools, elementary schools and high schools are preparing young Christians to enter the mission field and continually proclaim Christ's love throughout their lives.

Here at Concordia we are blessed to have students from Lutheran schools in states across the country. From St. Louis to Rockford, these students were mentored by dedicated teachers and administrators to be witnesses and disciples in every stage of their life.

With over 2,000 high school, middle school,  elementary and pre-schools throughout the nation, Christian education is alive and well. We are so thankful to these institutions for preparing young people to enter college  with a strong faith to support them as they discover their vocation.

Here we have compiled a list of Lutheran high school alumni from across the country. In honor of National Lutheran Schools Week, they are sharing some of the ways their high school education has aided them at Concordia and why they know their fellow Lutheran high students may love it, too.
