About This Mission Grant

Lutheran High School of Greater New Orleans, the only high school in the LCMS Southern District, has been serving youth for over 50 years. It provides students with the opportunity to academically succeed in a safe environment, while educating them about their Lord and Savior through the teachings of the LCMS. Many of the students being served by the school are disadvantaged, culturally diverse, and unchurched. 

Because the school was devastated by Hurricane Ida, funds which would have been used for computers, school supplies, Christian materials, and scholarship aid are now being used for construction costs to rebuild one of the buildings. 

This grant will be matched by five generous donors and will be used to pay the tuition costs of ten students. 


Hurricane Ida peeled back the roofs on the three buildings.

After Hurricane Ida, Lutheran High School had to remove a huge amount of asbestos.

Hurricane Ida destroyed almost everything that was contained in any of the classrooms.
