Strong Academics

Strong AcademicsCentral Lutheran School offers an engaging, integrated, and rigorous curriculum that includes a strong foundation in core academic disciplines: English, with an emphasis on writing, reading and public speaking; mathematics; science; social studies; and Lutheran theology.

In addition, performing and visual arts, athletics, music, technology, physical education, and community service are important curriculum components, enhancing the growth of our students' hearts, minds, and faith.  Developing social and emotional skills is a critical part of our program as well and plays an important part in our school culture.

Our teachers create a rich and varied learning environment in which our students develop exceptional learning skills through engaging curriculum, creative projects, and hands-on interactive experiences.  We have one SMART Board and multiple computers in each classroom and two mobile computer labs available for our students.  Central Lutheran students know how to communicate effectively both orally and in writing, are skilled at information gathering and processing, and approach their studies with an inquisitive spirit.

At Central Lutheran we are deeply committed to the intellectual, social, spiritual, and physical growth of our students.  We also expect our children to develop leadership skills, compassion and mutual respect for others.  We guide them to become responsible citizens in our community and in the world.

Central Lutheran School is fully accredited by the State of Indiana and National Lutheran School Accreditation.  One-third of our faculty has received advanced education degrees, and all faculty members participate annually in professional development opportunities, showing that the commitment to education does not stop with the students. 

The 19:1 student-teacher ratio allows the dynamic and experienced teaching staff to take a personal interest in their students and inspire them to greatness.  Teachers share the love of Christ every day in their classroom, making sure that students receive not only an excellent education, but also a spiritual and emotional foundation that will last a lifetime.

With over 400 students in preschool through 8th grade, Central Lutheran School offers a wide range of opportunities for students to excel.
