Mission

We seek to create an academic community that educates the student within the Lutheran Christian tradition where learning is our central focus. We do this by continually improving our curriculum and co-curriculum, strengthening our creative work, and serving the community.

Vision

Our vision is to ensure that each learner develops to his or her fullest potential by creating an academic environment celebrating and honoring the students’ diversity of gifts, abilities, and background to build a better world.

Core Values

OSLS imparts its core values to its enrollment through a student-centered focus on academic distinction in a faith-based environment by using our skilled expertise to meet the needs of students and inspire excellence. We take responsibility for the educational results and customize services to ensure that our students and their families receive an exceptional educational experience. Our school model is based on the small, nurturing culture of highly trained and experienced staff and teachers working together with our community of parents to stay at the forefront of innovation in teaching and learning.

Faith

“Our faith stems from the heritage and tradition of Christ’s love and gives expression to our educational mission and identity while also welcoming and respecting other religious and philosophical traditions, promoting the dialogue between faith and culture, and valuing opportunities to deepen religious beliefs.”

Academic Excellence

“We provide an uncompromising standard of excellence in teaching, learning and creativity where students are nurtured and challenged intellectually, spiritually, morally, socially and physically - equipping them for success.”

Character

“We instill in our students the traits necessary to form healthy relationships based upon character, integrity, and mutual respect.”

Service to Others

“We promote a culture of life long service - service not only to staff, students and families, but also to the community in general and the world beyond.”
