I appreciate the way the students participate in their weekly chapel and "campfire" gatherings--two worship experiences that inspire and foster greater Christian faith. The small size of the school also encourages community and positive relationships between students, parents, and teachers.

Walther was an amazing experience for me even though I was there for 2 years. They gave me the opportunity to grow and they welcome me as another family member. All the staff members are very warming and they help you throughout everything educationally, personal, and with everything else you might have troubles with. Most important that is based on a Lutheran education they welcome every religion.
It’s a Great Christian environment, I love campfire. The sense of community is growing and it’s really having a positive impact on the school . One thing that could change is adding a few more Ap classes.
