Named Premier Parent Choice Award Winner for 2022-23 🏆
Since 1958, Christ Lutheran School & Preschool has been committed to academic excellence while maintaining a traditional school environment and curriculum.
Christ Lutheran Preschool has served the community of La Mesa since 1995. Our facility is open year-round Monday through Friday, 7:00 am - 5:30 pm, excluding noted holidays. Our qualified staff plans and implements a daily curriculum that encourages young children to develop excitement about learning.
Christ Lutheran School is about three things: Being Christ-Centered, Strong Academics, and a Loving School Culture! We do this by spending time in God's Word, challenging our students to be strong, independent, and accountable, and creating a school culture where kids feel loved and known. Christ Lutheran School's curriculum and culture are strategically designed to grow kids who love Jesus, love school, and are well-prepared for higher education.
"We love, quite literally, everything and everyone at CLS & are so grateful to have found a HOME within their school and church. Our children happily hop out of the car in the morning and jump back in with smiles and stories of what they have learned and interactions with staff and classmates in the afternoon. They receive such strong academic and spiritual guidance at CLS. This school has been the greatest blessing to our whole family!"
- Nicole, CLS Parent
"Walking through Christ Lutheran School, it is clear how special & unique it is. The mission of the administrators, teachers and students feels tangible and the energy is amazing. 100% focus on learning and Christ. No air of anything other than that - which is how a well run school should be! Thank you to the truly incredible teachers at staff at CLS!!! We are so blessed to be a CLS Family!"
- Zak, CLS Parent
“We came from a public school, and though our kids have to wake up earlier, are receiving more homework, and are held accountable for their work - there has not been a single complaint! They are rising to the challenge and eager to show what they have learned.”
-José, CLS Parent
“I give CLS a 10 out of 10 because the spirit of the Lord is upon this school. You can see it on the teachers and the staff. It’s an environment of love and safety. It’s been our home for 16 years now, and the relationships that have been cultivated are amazing. My 19 year old son, class of 2017, often says those were the best years of his life. “
-Kathy, CLS Alumni Parent
“CLS prepares their students for high school and college. One of my children is currently enrolled at Biola and the other is still in high school and they are thriving. I ask them why they think they are doing so well and they always say because of CLS. Through love and discipline they have showed our children what it is to be accountable and what it is to be a hard worker. My husband and I have been beyond blessed by CLS. My one desire is that my kids will live here and send their children to CLS."
- Robin, CLS Alumni Parent
Our daughter jumped in the car yesterday singing “Praise the Lord, oh my soul” and didn’t stop singing it all night! She sang it at home, on the swing, and at swim lessons... It is not lost on us how much of a blessing that is...This “small“ gesture encapsulates so much of what we were confident Christ Lutheran could provide and there are no words! Thank you, thank you for your role in her life and we are so very excited for all the growth that will happen academically this year, but especially spiritually.
