Lutheran High School of St. Charles

Lutheran High School is writing a new chapter in its history with a 27,970 SF addition. The design team met with school committees to program their needs and formulate a campus master plan. The new building includes a 2-story wing with a chemistry lab, music room and STEM lab for their growing, award-winning robotics curriculum. The addition also includes a new gymnasium and locker rooms that also serve as a community storm shelter. The shelter utilizes concrete tilt-up walls with innovative design solutions to comply with new codes adopted by the local Authorities Having Jurisdiction. Phase two of this project includes approximately 29,000 SF of interior renovations to re-purpose their gymnasium, provide a kitchen for hot lunch service, additional classrooms, and a new collaborative, flexible, and technology-influenced Media Center.
The school offers an innovative college-prep education, equipping students to be leaders and preparing students for lives of service. Students come from over 30 different middle schools, both public and private, and over 85% of the student body is involved in extracurricular activities. Construction is expected to conclude in summer 2019.
