Welcome to Christ Lutheran School


Home of the Tigers

Since 1871, Christ Lutheran School has provided quality Lutheran education to Norfolk and its surrounding communities. We exist to bring students in a relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ so they can spread the good news to the Norfolk area and beyond.  

CLS is a special place where each student is loved and cared for by our dedicated faculty and staff. One step on our campus and you will feel right at home. Lutheran education simply matters to Christ Lutheran Church, our Norfolk LCMS sister congregations, and our Norfolk community as evidenced by our current $9.5 million activity center project currently being constructed.

We are so excited to show you what we have to offer at CLS!  Please contact me personally by email or filling out a new student information form under the admissions tab. God’s blessings to you!
