Campus Theme
Growing in Christ

Our church, child care, and school theme for the year is based on Galatians 6:10 which reads, “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and build up in him and established in the faith, just as you wer taught, abounding in thanksgiving." This theme reminds us of where our faith is rooted, and that everything we do is done to the glory of God.

Lutheran Schools Ranked
#1 in the Country!

The NAEP report, often called the "Nation's Report Card" ranked the Lutheran School system the #1 school system in the country! When compared to public schools, charter schools, and other large school systems, the system of Lutheran grade schools and high schools was ranked the best academic system. Christ Lutheran is proud to be a member of that system.

Additionally, a new report released by ACT shows that students who attend private schools are significantly more ready for college than students who attend public schools. These are two more excellent reasons to celebrate the great work God is doing at Christ Lutheran & Lutheran High School Northeast.

Christ Lutheran School was visited by the Nebraska Department of Education for compliance with Rule 14 which is what our parochial schools operate under. Read their letter here (low resollution) here (high resolution). The reference to Rule 10 is what the public schools operate under. We would meet the requirements of Rule 10, but have chosen not to.
