The welcoming family environment at Heartland Lutheran High School is full of Christ-centered opportunities to worship, learn, compete, build relationships, and have fun.
Our dedicated and caring faculty and staff make sure that our students are cared for spiritually, academically, and socially in order that each student sees Christ's love reflected in all that we do. We truly want each student and family to call Heartland Lutheran home.
Heartland Lutheran High School serves families who desire a Christ-centered education for their students. While the majority of our students come from a Lutheran congregations many of our students come from other Christian backgrounds such as Methodist, Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian, Non-Denominational, and other denominations.

1. Intentional worship opportunities such as chapel
2. A focus on prayer
3. Surrounding our students with positive Christian influences
4. A caring atmosphere focused on love and respect
5. Intentional service opportunities for the community and world

Chapel is a formal time for worship where the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified and risen for all is offered to us through those called to preach and teach the Word of God. While chapel is a school event, all are welcome to join us for worship.
As Heartland Lutheran High School participates in athletics, we must make sure as staff, student athletes, and parents that we do everything we can to imitate Jesus Christ (Philippians 2:1-11). This is extremely important to the student and parent as we look to develop our athletic skills to compete, but more importantly work toward the development of strong Christian men and women with the understanding that while we are in this world we are called to be a part of it, we are not of it and are called to a higher purpose (1 Peter 2:9-12, John 15:19, 1 John 2:15-17). There is no exceptions allowed, and it falls under the number one expectation for all of Heartland Lutheran High School athletics: Everything you do, do it for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31, Colossians 3:17).
