I cannot express how much of a community/family this school has created within its walls. Everyone supports each other through friendship and faith. This creates a wonderfully positive environment for education to take place. In addition, the programs within the school are incredibly advanced and diverse. This creates a great environment for students to get ready for college and the real world! Having a great education system would be wonderful in and of itself, but LSA has created an education system, a community, and a family environment for students to flourish in.

The school is amazing and offers amazing activities during and after school. I have both a lower school and middle school child who attend LSA. I have one child who came to LSA as with very timid and quiet personality, that has since changed. He felt loved by his teachers and quickly became willing to take more risks socially. He now is a leader in his grade level and in his outside of school activities. I also have one child who has a carefree and loving spirit. She is able to use this personality to help others in serving her community at school and in the Houston area. Awesome atmosphere for my children to grow and use their gifts!
Lutheran South Academy has provided an excellent education for my students for the past 13 years! The staff is friendly, welcoming, and experts at what they do. My children feel safe, are happy, and have been quite successful in their academic and extra-curricular careers.
