    Orange Lutheran High School is looking for students who will add to our community. We do not require a specific grade point average from applicants, but look for students who demonstrate a commitment to academic growth. Applicants should be involved in school or extracurricular activities and demonstrate good behavior and attendance. Although our student body is composed of students of many different denominations, students who are members of our Lutheran association churches will have their applications reviewed first. To simplify the admissions process, Orange  Lutheran has implemented an online application. Privacy guards help to ensure personal information stays secure. There is a fee of $50 due when submitting the application.
    Why a Lutheran School?
    A report issued by the National Center for Education Statistics shows that private school students are more likely to graduate from high school, pursue a four-year college degree, attend a selective college, and aspire to graduate school admission.
    It also shows graduation rates of 96.2% for private schools, both religious and secular. California’s public school graduation rate is estimated to be just over 70%.  Lutheran schools secure each child’s future by nurturing the spiritual education of each child. Children who are exposed to and embrace godly lives enjoy the lifelong benefit of God’s blessings and significant opportunities for influential service.

    The Lutheran Church has a tradition of excellence in education and are part of a network of 5,000 schools worldwide. Our school system makes up the second largest parochial education system in the nation. We have operated schools for over 140 years and continue to be known for our excellent academic and spiritual opportunities for students.

    Lutheran schools were ranked first in science in the 4th, 8th, and 12th grade. (Data collected nationwide, public, and private schools, only in these grades.) In addition, Lutheran schools were first in reading in the 4th and 8th grade (No data collected for the 12th grade.)  And Lutheran schools were second in math at the 4th, 8th, and 12th grade levels.

    Lutheran schools are first and foremost a Christian school. Students in a Lutheran school are involved with worship, Biblical study, and prayer. They are nurtured in an environment that allows grace and forgiveness to thrive. The goal is that they will be equipped to step out boldly to proclaim the love of God, through Jesus, to a world in need of loving care and responsible relationships.
