Our Vision


With hearts focused on God’s vision for the future, the Concordia Lutheran Schools and Mount Rainier Lutheran High School Boards have been prayerfully exploring ways in which we might minister together more closely. We now have a joint operating agreement in place as of October, 2016 and are implementing it with the support of our community leaders and staff.

Below are some of those key individuals leading us forward:
