Academics at Saxony

We offer a comprehensive curriculum at SLHS to help each student achieve his or her God-given potential. We pray that students will select courses that lead to the path God has planned for them once they have completed their high school years. Courses will help our students prepare for lives of service to their Lord.  Some of our students will continue their education in 4-year colleges. Others will be best served by attending technical or vocational schools. Our students will pursue excellence in whatever programs they have selected.

In addition to these credit totals, each student is required to be enrolled in a religion class every year they are a student at Saxony. Each student is required to perform sixty clock hours of volunteer service over the course of their four years at Saxony. These requirements are solely for graduation from Saxony Lutheran. They are designed in order to ready our students for a life dedicated in Christ’s service. Some colleges/universities may require additional course work for admittance also. Each student should check with college admissions offices to verify their current standards.
