Student Life

At Lutheran Unity, we believe in a well-rounded Christian Education. To ensure students learn and grow spiritually, academically and physically, students participate in sports, lead in Student Council (5th through 8th grade), play clarinet in the band, or sing their hearts out at the Spring Talent Show.

   There’s something for everyone at Lutheran Unity – Check it out!
