Since 1958, Faith Lutheran School has provided  students with a faith-based education centered around Christian values and strong academics. Serving as a  mission of Faith Lutheran Church, the school operates  as part of the largest Protestant school network in the  country. Faith Lutheran places Christianity and family  first while providing students with the quality education  needed for success.  

“We nurture a personal relationship between our  students and Jesus Christ,” said Principal Gordon Stuckert. “We value our partnership with parents in the  education of their children as we prepare our students to  be Christian leaders in today’s society.”  

When the school first began, they focused on teaching  children from kindergarten to fifth grade. Since then,  the school has added one of the only all-day church  preschool programs in East Cobb along with a middle  school program. In 2019, Faith Lutheran added a toddler class to reach younger students. The school is currently undergoing several renovations and expansions as they look forward to the future. 

“We are currently in the process of remodeling the lobby and entrance area to be welcoming and accommodate future growth.  Our reaccreditation process includes plans for numerous  exterior and interior facility improvements to enhance the  children’s educational experience,” Stuckert said. 

Faith Lutheran has experienced much success  throughout the years as they continue to grow their  ministry and academic program. This can only be  attributed to the school’s exceptional faculty and  leadership. Their current faculty averages over 15 years  of teaching experience and many staff members hold  advanced degrees. Stuckert has received recognition  as a National Distinguished Principal with the U.S.  Department of Education. He is proud of the school’s  family atmosphere that allows students to build strength  and confidence for achieving academic success and  applying what they have learned to real-life situations. 

“In today’s high-stakes world, students often feel  a lot of pressure,” said Gretchen  Hornsby, a school parent since  2011. “At Faith Lutheran, children know they are loved and appreciated for all of their gifts and talents, academic and otherwise. Faith Lutheran truly teaches and develops the whole child.”

Setting up their students for academic success, Faith  Lutheran bases their values and family environment  around the teachings of Jesus Christ. However, they also  pride themselves on offering one of the most affordable  tuition rates in East Cobb with experienced faculty who  make the educational experience fun and enjoyable.  

“We encourage and instruct our diverse community  of students from the unity we find in Jesus Christ, so  that they may grow and mature in the love of Christ and  share that love with each other, family, and community,”  Stuckert said. 

After the middle school program, local private high  schools express interest in teaching their academically driven students. Many of the school’s alumni have  gone on to experience collegiate accomplishments after  graduation receiving acceptance to esteemed colleges  and universities such as Duke, UGA, Georgia Tech,  Alabama, Berry College, Oglethorpe, and Concordia  Seminary St. Louis. 

“Our students are well-prepared when they leave us,  both spiritually and academically,” Stuckert said. “Our  faculty and staff model a Christian life for their students,  as these students use this opportunity to reach their  God-given potential.”
