The primary mission of The Lutheran High School of Kansas City is to guide and mentor students on their faith journeys through adolescence and beyond. Our mission statement “preparing lives for today, tomorrow and eternity” is the driving force behind our school and our supporting community as we strive to strengthen our relationship with our Lord and Savior. Our 2021-2022 theme verse sums up our philosophy 1 Peter 5: 6-7 “Humble yourselves under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”
