Lutheran High School began a new chapter in its history on Thursday, June 14, with a formal groundbreaking ceremony for additional classrooms and a new gymnasium.
The 27,970 square-foot addition will include an additional science lab, music and STEM classrooms; a larger gym; lobby, locker rooms, bathrooms and a concession stand.
This new structure is necessary to accommodate Lutheran High School’s growing enrollment. Student enrollment has increased by 20% in the last five years. Last year’s enrollment of 345 students will jump to almost 380 students for 2018-2019 and enrollment is expected to reach 400—current building capacity—in 2019. The complete building project also includes renovating existing classrooms and labs in order to serve 550 students.
“Our goal is to improve the experience of current students and prudently prepare for the future as our enrollment continues to rise,” stated Dr. Craig Ernstmeyer, Head of School.
Lutheran High School opened in 1982 and moved to its present location on Mexico Road in St. Peters in 1989. The school offers an innovative college-prep education, equipping students to be leaders and preparing students for lives of service. LHS is Christ-centered and provides students with daily opportunities to grow in their relationship with Jesus. LHS teachers demonstrate a passion for learning and serving, and the rigorous curriculum engages students in technology and fosters collaboration. Students come from over 30 different middle schools, both public and private, and over 85% of the student body is involved in extracurricular activities.
The architect for the building project is M+H Architects of St. Louis. The construction company for the project is Ben Hur. Construction is expected to conclude in summer 2019.
All new students and their parents are expected to attend New Student Orientation on Friday, August 10. Orientation sessions for both students and parents will be held in the morning. At noon, parents are dismissed and students will stay for lunch and afternoon games until 2:45 pm. Contact Mrs. Lisa Gnade, Director of Enrollment, with any questions!
