Why send your child to a Christian school like Hope Lutheran in Shawnee?

Our history in the Shawnee area started in 1983 when the congregation of Hope Lutheran Church voted to establish a Christian day school. It opened in the fall of 1983 with 21 students. In 1987 the congregation approved plans to remodel the existing classrooms and add an education wing. In 1998, the congregation approved another building addition, which included a Family Life Center (gym) and additional rooms for meetings, Sunday School, music, and day school.

Throughout Hope’s history, we have emphasized worship and Christian education. As we continue to benefit from the growth of our suburban community, we prayerfully seek His will in meeting the increasing spiritual and physical needs of our congregation and school families.

We strive to keep the focus on Jesus Christ, and Hope Lutheran School empathizes on the following:

  • Our school is driven by a commitment to the Gospel and focused on a mission of bringing hope and healing to students and families.
  • Hope is governed by board members who clearly understand their roles and focus on the vision and board policies that effectively govern the operation of the school.
  • Hope meets and exceeds state and national academic standards at all grade levels from preschool through 8th grade. Our students are prepared to succeed in the next grade level.
  • Hope has educators who model visionary leadership. They practice stewardship of resources, build up others and empathize with others.
  • Hope has educators who model spiritual leadership. Our teachers study God’s word, share their personal faith story, apply Law and Gospel appropriately, exhibit a passion for ministry, act courageously, equip God’s people for service, care for others, demonstrate, and pray.
  • Hope Lutheran School is accredited by the State of Kansas, National Lutheran School Association and Cognia.
  • We are intentional about “BUILDING lives of EXCELLENCE upon the foundation of CHRIST.”
