We did it Conquerors!!  And we did it together!  God has been good and faithful to our school. Thanks for an amazing year.  We persevered through the challenges and are stronger. On behalf of all of our staff, thank you for the prayers and words of encouragement throughout the year. We wish you all an amazing summer. I will send newsletters every other week throughout the summer just to stay connected and check in. If you are out and about traveling the globe, bring a spirit shirt with you, take a picture and tag us @avcsconquerors and you will be entered in a drawing for a prize. Thanks again and may the Lord bless you and keep you until we see each other again in the fall.   

Go Conquerors!!!

High School Information and Events: 



Crean Lutheran High School desires to ensure students are properly placed in coursework that allows for academic success and fulfillment. This process is predicated on prayerful conversations between school and family that review and set a course between a student's academic history and his/her academic future.

For incoming transfer students, these conversations are primarily centered around the blending of a student's high school transcript into an individually-tailored graduation plan for post-secondary school goals. For incoming freshman, the process involves a review of a student's performance on the Crean Lutheran Placement Test, which is offered on Saturday mornings in January and February. Crean Lutheran offers a complementary evening event, Academic Information Night, to help students and parents understand the format of the Crean Lutheran Placement Test, go over the course placement process, and provide information about our various academic programs. Interested families may register by clicking HERE. If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office at




The best way to get to know JSerra is through a personalized tour for your family. We will cater to your interests while helping you to become familiar with our more than 30-acres of world class academic, artistic, and athletic facilities. Taking a tour now will offer you fantastic insight into the ingenuity and resourcefulness that has set JSerra apart since our founding. You can sign up for one of our daily tour times or contact our admissions team to schedule a visit at your convenience. Sign up for a tour now!
