Mission, Vision, and Objective Statements
for Michigan Lutheran High School
A Place Where Students Are Preparing for Life and for Eternity
Michigan Lutheran High School (MLHS) exists as an arm of the congregations of the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod), which belong to the Southwestern Michigan Lutheran High School Association. As such, its primary purpose is as follows:
Michigan Lutheran High School exists to provide students with Christ-centered learning for Christ-centered living now and for Eternity.
In order to fulfill this mission, Michigan Lutheran High School strives to meet the following:
- To be Christ-centered and confessionally Lutheran in its worship, instruction, counseling, discipline and activities.
- To proclaim, teach and apply the Holy Scriptures—which are the inspired, inerrant Word of the Triune God—as they fit each setting of school life.
- To nurture “growth in grace” (2 Peter 3:18) and the resultant “fruits of faith” (John 15:54) through the gospel message.
- To reach out into our community with the glorious Gospel message as Christ has commissioned us.
- To encourage all students to use their gifts for a life of service and leadership, and to be lifelong learners of God’s Holy Word.
- To encourage and prepare interested students for the full-time preaching and teaching ministries.
- To teach students to use their academic abilities to the glory of God, and to apply these skills as lifelong learners.
- To equip students for faithful and capable citizenship to the glory of God.
- To enable students to become well-rounded individuals by providing curricular and extra-curricular opportunities as Christian educational experiences to the glory of God.
We influence our students’ attitudes and expand their skills and knowledge so that:
- Our graduates display an active faith life in their churches, workplaces, communities and the world.
- They possess a strong academic base.
- They are effective in both oral and in written communication.
- They possess the ability to solve problems and work cooperatively.
- They are comfortable with technology and its applications.
- They are well-rounded culturally and understand the benefits of healthful living.
- They display leadership skills and are independent, life-long learners.
- They possess the confident hope that they will reside with their Father in heaven throughout eternity upon completion of their walk with Christ on earth.
* A vision is an ideal result for which MLHS strives; an objective is the vision fully realized and evidenced.
