The Lutheran School System
Cross Lutheran School is one of over 2,000 Lutheran elementary schools and free-standing pre-schools owned and operated by congregations of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). Since its origin in America in 1847, the LCMS has believed it important to maintain these schools as a part of its total educational program. Through the years this system spread from coast to coast, employing approximately 6,000 teachers, most of whom received their college education at one of the nine colleges and universities owned by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Today, the LCMS system of schools comprises the largest Protestant system of schools in North America, educating some 250,000 students each year.
Cross Lutheran School is one of 128 Lutheran school ministries in the Texas District of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod. Teachers at CLS hold valid state certified teaching certificates. Several professional conferences and workshops are held each year to assist the faculty in remaining current in the latest methodology and philosophy in the educational field.
