In our mission statement Lutheran High School of Indianapolis commits itself to preparing students to be of service to the local, national, and global community. Caring for others in need is an essential part of the Lutheran tradition that has inspired the school from its inception in 1976.
Through the Christian Service programs, students begin to understand people in need. They learn about the forces in society that cause poverty, hunger, prejudice, and other injustices. They see how they can make a significant difference in these situations on a local and global level. Lutheran hopes that such service becomes a life-long habit to our graduates.
All Lutheran High School students complete 20 hours of service each year.
Service hours may be submitted to the students’ religion teacher using the service hour verification form.
