Transformation

A journey of personal growth and change

Holy Cross Lutheran Academy’s mission is: To strengthen students and families to live a transformed life through Christ. We take that mission seriously at all levels of education and have ensured that our high school program fulfills that mission for our students. In addition to our core academics that exceed the expectations required for graduation and college entrance, we have carefully developed a program that will raise up young Christian leaders to go out into the world to fulfill their purpose. Holy Cross Lutheran Academy’s unique four-year program, Transformation, takes our students on a journey as they:

  • DISCOVER their God-given gifts and talents
  • Develop LEADERSHIP skills
  • Learn the value of TEAMWORK in their community
  • Prepare for their LAUNCH into the future
