Apostles Lutheran High School is an extension of the education program of Apostles Lutheran Church and School in San Jose, CA. We are a conservative Lutheran church and school, faithful to the Scriptures and God’s mission for His church. We view our school as a blessing and tool from God to be used for the purpose of raising children up in the Lord: knowing Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and guiding them to know and live His will for their lives. (Ephesians 2:20; 2 Peter 3:18)
Apostles Lutheran School is located in south San Jose, at 5828 Santa Teresa Blvd, San Jose, CA 95123. High School classes are conducted at our campus at Peace Lutheran Church in Santa Clara. Transportation between campuses is provided by the school.
The school mascot is the Falcon; our colors are purple and black.
The falcons will gather…For it is His mouth that has given the order, and his Spirit will gather them together. Isaiah 34:15-16

Our program of instruction is a blended format of on-line and traditional classroom instruction. Each student needs a laptop or iPad in order to access most of the courses’ lessons, information, note-taking, assignments, supplementary material and e-textbooks. Most assignments are submitted via email or course dropboxes. This is fast becoming the way of education today. Introducing students to it now will better prepare them for the advancing wave of education. Some courses will also use the traditional “paper and pencil” and hard copy textbooks as well. But all of this is done under the guidance and instruction of live teachers in the classroom. They are not just listening to or communicating with “talking heads” or written text.
Classes are offered on core, honors and Advanced Placement (where applicable) levels. Students are guided in their learning according to their abilities and levels by the teachers. Many of our courses have been designed by the University of California to be used by high schools for college prep purposes (www.ucscout.org).
All of our teachers have degrees in education or are credentialed; several of them have advanced degrees in their subject areas as well. They are all experienced in the classroom, are Christian and members of Apostles Lutheran Church. They are deeply committed to Christian education and make personal sacrifices in order to teach our students—all because they care, just as Christ cares for us. The teachers are readily available for helping each student as well as communicating with parents.
Our program is accredited by the Western Association of School and Colleges (WASC) and has as its goal that each student, according to his/her God-given ability, at graduation will meet the entrance requirements of the University of California (http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/requirements), which also qualifies them for most other colleges and universities. (Note: there are several factors, like grade point averages, types of classes, and scores on college entrance exams, which are also reviewed by colleges as part of the admissions process.)
Because we are a small school (compared to most others), we are able to schedule activities and trips which augment our instruction that other schools may not be able to facilitate. Our size also results in students getting personalized attention for the academics, college and career guidance, and faith-life.
For the 2016- 2017 school year, ALHS plans to offer the following interscholastic sports: Boys & Girls Varsity Basketball, Boy & Girls Varsity Volleyball, Boys & Girls Cross Country.
Community and Church Service
Students will be required to spend some time during the year in service opportunities through the church and in the community. Many opportunities are available through the church, and provide fun and rewarding experiences helping others.
Private music lessons are available through the school. Students may also be involved in weekly practices and regular performances of the church’s voice and handbell choirs, and the youth praise band.
A drama program is currently being considered for implementation during the 2016-2017 school year.
