Living Word Lutheran High School is committed to offering a quality Christian education to all students both local and from abroad. A very important part of our growing school is the international culture and the presence our international students have on campus.
We have an on campus dormitory that can provide housing for up to 20 students in five suites. The dorm has a full-time resident assistant and provides meals and all housing needs for these students. High school in China starts with the 10th grade year so many of the students who live on-campus will be students at our school for three years. Last year we had three students from the dormitory graduate and matriculate to Parsons School of Design, Michigan State University, and Penn State. There are also international students enrolled at Living Word LHS that live with residents in the area. These students, along with the dormitory students, are enrolled in English as a Second Language [ESL] courses to support their studies.
Living Word LHS also serves as a primary consultant for a school in China — Living Word Shanghai [LWS]. LWS educates students in grades 1 – 12 using a bilingual curriculum. We assure the English language portion of their curriculum mirrors curriculum used here at Living Word LHS in Jackson thus allowing graduates from LWS to earn a dual diploma. One of our current courses, Global Collaboration, has students enrolled from both Shanghai, China and Jackson, Wisconsin which allows the students to share ideas and develop a clearer understanding of the ways culture can shape ideas. We also have an online portal to facilitate the faculty on both campuses sharing ideas, methodology, and student work.
