A History of Expanding to Serve Students


After 10 years at the original Lutheran High School in downtown Cleveland, Lutheran High School West is established in Rocky River.


Lutheran West is expanded with the addition of the “100s” and guidance counselor offices in the library.


The Cleveland Lutheran Educational Endowment (CLEEF) is established.


The Jochum Room and John Katt Music Room are built, allowing more space for the fine arts.


Light the Night celebrates the construction of a new football stadium named Alumni Field.


Through the Vision Alive! campaign, Science and STEM programs are expanded with the addition of the science wing and an engineering lab. A dedicated art studio is added, along with The Senney Gymnasium, weight room, and locker rooms.


The Unleash the Spirit capital campaign allows for the establishment of The Senney Honors Academy, expansion of the Jochum Room into the Jochum Performing Arts Center, new baseball dugouts, the addition of artificial turf to the baseball diamond, and refacing of the school building.


The I Believe in West campaign provides for a full renovation to the library and updates to the Wittrock Gymnasium, the main offices, Admissions Center, and Student Life Center.


The Lutheran West Middle School opens its doors, and the Forward in Faith capital campaign is launched to serve more students with more opportunities.
