Beliefs of Our Christian Lutheran School in Rocklin, CA

Holy Cross Lutheran Academy provides excellent faith-based education to children from preschool prep to first grade. Our programs are based on the beliefs and values set forth in the Bible, and we are proud to nurture the Christian faith in our students from an early age.

Our Philosophy 

We believe:

  • Each child is a unique gift from God
  • It is our responsibility to walk and live the faith, providing children with an example of the life God desires us to live
  • Our school should provide a safe and loving learning environment where children feel confident to explore, learn, communicate, and relate to others
  • Parents and guardians are their children’s primary teachers. We are committed to embrace, support, and partner with them, so the children gain tremendous advantages at home and at school

Our purpose is to:

  • Guide and support each child’s social, emotional, academic, physical, and spiritual development
  • Prepare children to succeed in school and life as self-directed learners and responsible citizens
  • Teach the Gospel and foster the development of Christian character
  • Promote a love of learning, exploration, inquiry, problem solving, and critical thinking
  • Foster a sense of belonging and healthy relationships


“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is older, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

The Benefits of a Faith-based Education

What sets Holy Cross Lutheran Academy apart from other schools is the passion and character shaping we infuse into our curriculum. When learning, our students are introduced to who God is, and learn of Him through the stories of the Bible. They build upon these stories of God, Jesus, and his love, throughout the rest of their lives. A faith-based education instills values of respect for the world and other people so children grow into respectable and upstanding adults. The spiritual life at Holy Cross Lutheran Academy nurtures the whole child. 

Our Values

As a Christian school, we focus on the values and guidance given to us by Jesus Christ in the Holy Scriptures. We believe in teaching our children that the God of the Bible is the God of mercy, who loves His people and sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us so that we might live in Him forever. The faith that we teach might be called traditional or historic Christianity, but that doesn’t mean boring! Our life in God is a gift from Him, and He uses us, His people, to spread His love to the whole world.
