Student Life

Co-Curricular Activities

Find your place to belong.

At Lutheran North, we prepare you holistically for your future. In addition to academic and spiritual preparation, we challenge you to embrace opportunities to use your talents in athletics, music, drama, art, technology and many other areas. Through our many co-curricular activities, you will develop leadership skills that will enable you to direct and participate in activities that can change the world for Christ.

Co-curriculars include our outstanding athletic program, various clubs and organizations. We encourage you to do the things you love and also try new things to help you discover what your future can hold.

In our small school setting, students can choose to be involved in many different activities. You don't have to be just a music student, just an athlete, or just an artist. In fact, involvement in athletics, organizations and clubs helps our students better-set goals, organize their time and accomplish great things both in and out of the classroom.

With a variety of groups for different interests, we have something for everyone!

The group meets periodically throughout the school year. At each meeting one of the students leads the group in devotions, fellowship and prayer. As a group FCA plans service projects throughout the school year to benefit the community.

  • National Honor Society

    National Honor Society membership is based on four attributes: Scholarship, Leadership, Character, and Service. Members of this group are blessed by the Lord with talents and abilities that are pretty outstanding. But the true idea behind NHS is to use what God gave us in service to others.

    Each high school is host to its own chapter of National Honor Society. All NHS members across the nation must be selected on the basis of the same required four criteria, which are: scholarship, leadership, service, and character. At Lutheran North, those sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have a 3.2 GPA, or above, are eligible to be considered by the faculty selection committee that evaluates them on the three remaining criteria of NHS membership, which are regarded in equal value. If selected, students are notified by letter and must attend the installation to become members. This takes place second semester. Thereafter, they are required to maintain a 3.2 cumulative G.P.A., show cooperative school behavior, and are expected to take an active part in the activities of the organization in order to retain their membership and keep it in good standing. NHS membership is considered a great honor and a mark of prestige locally and nationally, but it is a service honorary organization with expectations attached and not just a one-time honor.

    At Lutheran North, the Crusader Chapter of NHS provides such services as reading the daily announcements, acolyting for daily chapel services, helping with the Academic Fair, tutoring, serving as ushers for special activities, and running two blood drives per year. Any second-semester sophomore, junior, or senior student with a 3.2 GPA is eligible to be considered by the faculty committee for membership. National Honor Society is an honorary service organization and an enjoyable stewardship experience available for selected students at Lutheran North.
  • Peer Ministry

    Peer Ministers are faculty-appointed student leaders who are mentors, role models, and leaders in the school. They mentor and welcome freshman and transfer students and are the leaders of the Small Group Chapels held each week. Peer Ministers are responsible for preparing weekly Bible studies and leading discussions and prayers for a group of 15 students. Peer Ministers are held to the highest of standards academically, behaviorally, and personally, and they are afforded the opportunity to shine as leaders at Lutheran North. Peer Ministers are required to attend a one-day training in early August.
  • Speech and Debate Team

  • Student Council

    Student Council (STUCO) at Lutheran North is a fun, energetic and entertaining group of students who organize and lead a variety of school activities including Homecoming, Spirit Days, Powder Puff, Pep Rally’s and Polar Bear Plunge. Student Council is a very positive group to be apart of because they help to make the school activities enjoyable while also helping to provide for those in need outside of the school.

    Polar Bear Plunge is one of the service activities that STUCO (Student Council) presents to the school to help support Special Olympics. This activity includes having the school to raise money to have a few students and a teacher jump into Creve Coeur Lake in February as part of a larger community event. Lutheran North students have won several awards for their participation in this frigid event!

    Powder Puff is a popular flag football game between classes. The twist to this is that the players are the females of the school instead of the males. Students may choose to purchase a t-shirt to support their class. Some brave male students may choose to lend their support by wearing a Lutheran North uniform skirt while cheering their girls to victory! 

    TREND (Turning Resources and Energy in New Directions) is a national student-led organization created by youth who wanted to take a leadership role in advocating an alcohol-free and other drug-free lifestyle. Our TREND Chapter works closely with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse-St. Louis Area for training and projects.

    The Lutheran North chapter of TREND conducts numerous activities throughout the year, including Red Ribbon Week in the fall (drug/alcohol awareness/prevention) and Yellow Ribbon week in the spring (suicide awareness). TREND also sends several students to the summer Regional Teen Institute for Prevention Leaders – a four day camp for students interested in learning about prevention and in leading such efforts at Lutheran North. All students who want to have fun without alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs are invited to join the chapter.
