Lincoln Lutheran is a private middle school and high school in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States, operated by the Lincoln Lutheran School Association, which is composed of seven Lutheran congregations in the Lincoln area. It is accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE), National Lutheran School Accreditation, and AdvancedED. It is also affiliated with the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS).
Lincoln Lutheran began as a junior high school in 1962, initially offering grades seven, eight, and nine. In 1994 the congregations of the Lincoln Lutheran School Association voted to expand Lutheran education in Lincoln beyond the ninth grade in support of a full, senior high school. In the fall of 1995, tenth grade was added, with the subsequent grades following annually. 1998 marked the high school's first graduating class. In 2005, despite resistance from congregations of the Lincoln Lutheran School Association with elementary schools, sixth grade was added to make a full middle school.
The member congregations of the Lincoln Lutheran School Association which have elementary schools and act as feeders for Lincoln Lutheran Middle/High School include Christ Lutheran, Faith Evangelical Lutheran, Messiah Lutheran, and Trinity Lutheran.
Lincoln Lutheran offers a traditional high school curriculum, along with multiple advanced and college-credit classes. The curriculum includes courses in physics, chemistry, biology, calculus, statistics, algebra, United States history, government, business, journalism, sociology, Spanish, English, and art. In addition to dedicated core curriculum, religion is integrated into the academic curriculum, with students being required to take religion courses and attend chapel services. Chapel services are held twice a week. Students also have the opportunity to lead chapel services for the Association Lutheran elementary schools.
Extracurricular programs are a large part of student life, with most students participating in at least one such activity. Lincoln Lutheran's extracurricular activities have a history of being successful, with multiple state championships and state tournament appearances, conference championships, and other accolades.
