On February 27, 1955, Christ Church - Lutheran voted to establish a parish day school in the church facilities, with kindergarten and grades 1-4. The school grew to the point where it was necessary to build an addition in 1957, which contained one additional classroom, restrooms, and a storage room. Another school building was added in 1963. Enrollment and teaching staff continued to increase in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. The addition of a preschool in the 80s allowed Christ Lutheran to serve children from age 3 to eighth grade. In the mid-80s the congregation approved expansion that included a Christian Life Center with gymnasium, ten new classrooms, and a larger playground. In the late 80s, and 90s significant improvements included: a science lab, a computer lab, remodeled school office, and a new playground. A capital campaign was initiated in 2006-07 to raise $8 million for a new Education Center housing 16 classrooms, a library, an office, a reception area, and a preschool playground. This building was constructed during the 2008-09 school year and opened in the fall of 2009. Another capital campaign was completed in spring of 2012, which resulted in the construction of a new 9-room classroom building during the 2012-13 school year. The final phase campaign appeal was completed during the summer and fall of 2013 and resulted in a new building along the north and west perimeter of the campus. This building replaced the former A and B buildings which were built in 1957 and 1963. Enrollment currently sits above 550 students from preschool through 8th grade. We have also continued to develop many resource and extension programs to serve all of our students and families, including the Connections program for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other neurodiversities. Our service learning program is one of our unique additions, seeking to develop faith and life as our school families reach out far beyond our campus. Throughout its history, Christ Lutheran School has always desired to provide a quality Christian education for all students enrolled on our campus.
