About Us

Leadership

During the initial establishment of the school, local Lutheran churches, now considered Association Member Churches, worked with the Lutheran High School Association of Orange County to provide prayer, funding, wisdom, and guidance and continue to do so to this day. Each of the Association Member Congregations has delegates. These delegates act as liaisons between Orange Lutheran and the Member Congregation. The delegates also elect the Board of Directors for Orange Lutheran, as well as address any other matters which require their attention, per the Bylaws.

The Board of Directors is the governing body for Orange Lutheran. They oversee and manage all financial aspects and policies including management of the Executive Director and therefore all staff and faculty therein, ensuring compliance with Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws.
 
In the effort to affect the lives of high school students - inside and outside of the classroom - strong leadership is paramount. In order to assure the presence of positive and influential leadership, Orange Lutheran employs a system that includes several levels of administration, starting with our Executive Director and Principal, working in conjunction with our Board of Directors and our Association Churches and Schools and their leaders.
