Vision Statement

Luther Classical College offers both B.A. and A.A. programs in which students learn the truth of the Christian faith as professed in the Lutheran Confessions; are encouraged in genuine Lutheran culture; and are prepared for life in the home, the church, and the community—cherishing the Western corpus of literature, philosophy, music, art, scientific discovery, and Christian theology, and preserving the use of classical languages.

Institutional Objectives

  1. To cultivate confessional Lutheran theology, liturgy, hymnody, and heritage through chapel worship, classroom instruction, and public performances and exhibitions that showcase the Gospel message of salvation in Christ.
  2. To transmit the greatest insights of the Western liberal arts tradition to the next generation through a robustly classical core curriculum required of all students, including Latin readings for all B.A. students.
  3. To instill in the rising generation of Lutherans the priority of Christian marriage, family, and piety, through instruction in the doctrine of vocation and the virtuous examples of faculty, staff, and administrators.
  4. To equip students to serve those whom God will entrust to their care in the family, the church, and the community by offering distinctive programs of study suitable to a wide range of vocations.
