Executive Director’s Message

Welcome to Valley Lutheran High School. I’m thankful that you are visiting us here and invite you to take a look around to get to know us better.

While I trust you’ll find the information you are looking for here, I also invite you to contact us in the near future to visit us in person. It is there that you will really experience the atmosphere our faculty and students create each day – an atmosphere rooted in Christ as our foundation, solid in educational practice, and full of leadership and extra-curricular experiences for our students.

While our Christian atmosphere is our highest priority, we are intentional about creating an academic program of the highest quality. Academic excellence is afforded to students in each class offering, and we seek to meet the needs of all our students. We offer a variety of Advanced Placement (AP) courses, Honors classes, and other classes that challenge all learners. We have a staffed special needs program for students who need additional assistance to achieve their potential. We know each student is unique, and we seek to provide for their unique educational needs.

Our Christian atmosphere provides a safe, loving environment for students to learn and grow in faith. As students grow in faith, they learn to live for the God who has blessed them so abundantly. He has blessed them with a Savior in Jesus, and He has blessed them with gifts, talents, and skills to use to serve others. As students learn to use their gifts to serve others, they are impacting the world. As leaders for today and tomorrow, our students are preparing for their future on earth and in heaven someday. To God be all the glory!

Feel free to contact me via email ( or phone (989-790-1676) if I can be of further assistance to you in any way.

In Christ,

Julian Petzold
Executive Director
