Lutheran High School West is a private, co-educational high school serving students in grades 9-12. Located in scenic Rocky River, Ohio, Lutheran West is nestled between a modern commercial shopping area and a quiet, traditional Cleveland-area neighborhood. The student experience includes challenging college-preparatory academics, competitive interscholastic athletics, a multitude of arts opportunities, and an active student culture. Above all else, however, is our supportive school community, which is rooted in Christian faith and values. Lutheran West students develop into well-rounded young adults who are prepared for college and beyond. This is accomplished through our robust academic curriculum, competitive athletics, elite arts programs, leadership opportunities, and the development of each student's faith foundation through our Christ-centered school community.
