A child’s formative years have the ability to begin shaping who they are and will be for the rest of their lives. We are dedicated to helping each child develop spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and socially. Along with a solid foundation in Christ, these are the tools children need to become lifelong leaders.

Learning is promoted through modern teaching methods, using technology, hands-on experiences, and field trips. As one of the largest Lutheran schools in the country, we are able to provide students with programs in music, art, physical education, learning resource, motor lab, and many extracurricular activities, along with core academics. We are also able to offer an extensive athletics program and extended before and after school care for our students.

Showing love for the Lord through generosity and serving others is instilled early in our students. The many servant events held throughout the school year, the variety of mission emphases chosen for chapel offerings and the collection of items for those in need are just a few ways that HCLS students work toward growing their servant hearts.


What Defines Us?

An education that glorifies God

Christian education relates God’s Word to every aspect of life. We seek to integrate it into every facet of curriculum throughout the school day, helping children nurture their personal relationship with God. Knowing they have a place in His kingdom helps our students discover the purpose He has for their lives.

Prepares for a life of faithful service

As we believe God has uniquely gifted each person to do good works which He expects His children to do, (Matthew 25:34-30; 1 Peter 4:10; Romans 12:3-21) we encourage our students to follow His example and to serve as Christ’s hands and feet in the world every day.

Child focused

A child’s first experiences in school are important to their learning and development. Our teachers are extraordinarily skilled in nurturing children while encouraging and challenging them to succeed. Teachers and students are actively involved in the learning process, resulting in a rewarding adventure where children are eager to learn, investigate, grow, and discover.

Family friendly

For over 55 years, we have been partnering with parents/guardians and families to nurture Christian based education. We welcome family involvement and credit many experiences and opportunities enjoyed by our children to the active participation of the families in our school.

Strong interpersonal relationships

Sharing common goals and interests, such as faith, creates strong bonds between teachers, students, and families. Reinforced by trust, respect, and honesty, the bonds that are formed at Hales Corners Lutheran School are ones that last a lifetime.

Who Are We?

Dedicated teachers

Our teachers are sensitive to your child’s individual needs and are committed to the development of the whole child; spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, and social. Teachers are fully invested in the well-being of their students, building healthy relationships and trust that prepare them to lead responsible, purpose-filled live for Christ.

Nationally accredited

National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) evaluates the quality of academics, programming, and spiritual formation. This process helps schools define success and plan for continued school improvement.

Exemplary school

Exemplary schools have met and exceeded expectations of the NLSA through the accreditation process. Through quality academics and spiritual development, exemplary schools have proven themselves as leaders, developing and implementing best practices.

Youngstar provider

YoungStar gives parents peace of mind and helps give their kids a promising start in life. As Wisconsin’s child care quality rating and improvement system, YoungStar gives parents the tools and information they need to raise happy, healthy kids. They also help preschools and extended child care providers give children safe, nurturing places to grow.
