Welcome to Crean Lutheran High School

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  Romans 12: 1-2

Crean Lutheran Curriculum

Honors & Recognition

Honors & Recognition

Each spring, CLHS administration will select the top two academicians to represent the senior class as Valedictorian and Salutatorian. Honor Roll is divided into three levels and based on a student’s weighted academic GPA. Recognition on the Dean’s List requires a GPA between 3.80 and 4.24; Principal’s Honor Roll requires a GPA between 4.25 and 4.49; and Distinguished Scholar requires a GPA of 4.50 or higher. The appropriate Honor Roll acknowledgement is included on the student’s transcript. CLHS also participates in the California Scholarship Federation (CSF) as well as the National Honor Society (NHS).

Dual Credit Courses

Dual Credit Courses

Crean Lutheran has partnered with local and national colleges and universities (Concordia University, Irvine and Concordia University, Seward) to provide students with increased rigor and further opportunities for academic growth. CLHS professors teach courses which are reviewed by colleges for rigor and scope. Students in these courses have the option to pay for college credits through those universities we partner with and earn both CLHS and college credit.
