9 high schools, served by nearly 2,000 full-time educators.


The Grantparent Program is a School Ministries mission project of the Pacific Southwest District of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. The purpose of the Grantparent Program is to provide tuition assistance to students in urban communities so that they can receive an excellent Christian and academic education.

Faith Like A Child

I remember as a child I was often told I needed to “grow up,” or do this or that a certain way because that’s how the world works, and I needed to understand and be prepared for the world.  Most of the time this instruction was a result from childish behavior and the normal learning, development, and growth that takes place in childhood.  However, what if there is an area where we take a step back and say it’s okay to remain child-like?
