Over 140 Years of Academic Excellence

At Topeka Lutheran School, students and teachers are partners in learning. Our teachers go beyond the curriculum with personalized education for each student. Academic excellence is not an empty slogan, but our proven track record. Our private Lutheran school achieves this by maintaining high academic standards, small class sizes, a family atmosphere, and Christian instruction.


Fully Accredited

Topeka Lutheran School is fully accredited with the State of Kansas. All our teachers have or are in the process of meeting all requirements to hold a Kansas teaching license.


Small Class Sizes

We cap all individual classes at a maximum of 24 students. This means your child gets the attention they need on a daily basis to best assist their learning.

Once you become a Wildcat, you truly are part of a family.
The atmosphere at Topeka Lutheran School is one that is unlike any other school. Whether it is the faculty, students, or other family members, everyone genuinely cares about one another and wants each other to succeed.
— Dalton Savage, Class of 2008 (Seaman High 2012 Valedictorian, Civil Engineer for Burns and McDonnell)

Topeka Lutheran School helped me transition from middle school to high school. It helped me excel in my academics, preparing me for high school honors classes. At TLS, it was considered normal for students to go above and beyond in their school work..Most importantly, I learned that I should always put God first. Whenever I am feeling stressed about the future, I know that I can trust in what God has in store for me.
— Ellen Wenger, Class of 2012 (Topeka West High 2016 Salutatorian, Kansas Governor’s Scholar, Washburn University — Presidential Scholar, Alpha Lambda Delta Honors Program)
