Students can earn college credits through dual credit courses

Dual credit courses are available to juniors and seniors who meet requirements to take college courses while in high school. Students who successfully complete dual credit courses receive three college credit hours directly from Concordia University Nebraska or Concordia University Wisconsin, as well as credit for the high school course. The college credits also transfer to other colleges and universities. A total of 18 college credits can be earned through dual credit courses.


Online Learning

In addition to the traditional on-campus classroom experience, LHN students have the opportunity to enroll in our online learning program, LEAH Schools Online. LEAH Schools has partnered with Orange Lutheran High School in Orange County, CA to provide an online learning experience for students who may be looking for a blended learning experience, part-time on campus and part-time online, or a full-time online high school experience.
