High school can be a difficult four years: it’s a time of many firsts, a time of understanding who you are and who you might become, a time when adolescents make choices that will impact the trajectory of their lives. Where do you want your child to spend these formative four years?
At Saxony Lutheran High School, we help your child become a leader by giving them opportunities to lead within the classroom, through extracurricular activities outside of class and in daily study of Scripture. We ensure your child is prepared to tell others about Jesus with their words and lead others to Jesus through their example, using God’s Word as their guide.
“In our mission statement, we state that we strive for excellence in all areas of education, and we apply that to our four pillars — faith, family, academics and activities, in that order,” says principal Mark Ruark. “Our goal is to continue turning out the highest-quality students who have been prepared by an outstanding Christ-centered staff.”
We do this through challenging your child, helping them to grow using their God-given gifts and talents inside and outside the classroom. We instill encouragement, independent thinking and self-discipline in our students, teaching the same values you teach at home.
Our teachers care. They foster disciplined environments for our students to experience consistency, and they teach our students how to handle conflict resolution in a Christian manner, creating a safe place for your child to attend school. With an average class size of 19, teachers are able to give more individualized attention to each student than could be given in larger class settings.
Here at Saxony, faith is a part of our day-to-day. Each morning begins with studying Scripture in a group setting, building community and helping students create lifelong friendships grounded in a shared faith. This faith is then lived out in service to the community, through a graduation requirement of 60 service hours performed by your child throughout their four years here. In these ways, Saxony Lutheran High School works together with you and your church to equip your child to succeed personally, socially and academically.
“Saxony has such a welcoming and high-energy atmosphere, it’s almost impossible to not fall in love right away,” says senior Micah Mirly. “I am so blessed to say I have cherished my last four years here with my life-long friends, amazing teachers and most importantly, my Creator!”
We hope you’ll come see for yourself: join us for our open house from 1 to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27. At this event, you and your child will have the opportunity to meet teachers and students, tour our facilities, learn about Saxony’s activities and programs, receive enrollment information and discuss tuition assistance. We hope to see you here, and for the opportunity to form your child as a Crusader.
