Hampton Lutheran School’s Mission

The mission of Hampton Lutheran School is to equip children both spiritually and academically, promoting faith, trust, and growth in their relationship with the one true God. HLS admits students of any race, color, nationality, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the school.

Our Teachers and Staff

Hampton Lutheran School has a staff of four full-time teachers, all certified by the state of Nebraska. We have access to a speech therapist and special education through the public school. Our educational service unit provides additional training and support. A teacher aide is also provided for preschool, and volunteer aides help teachers during the week.

A school nurse provides services including health screenings, record keeping and special health related programs. A custodian, food service manager, and part-time secretary are also on staff.

Teaching the Word of God at HLS

The inerrant Word of God is at the heart of the educational curriculum at Hampton Lutheran. Everything is taught in light of God’s Word. The subjects taught are the same as in the public school, but they are taught from a Christian viewpoint. There is a regular religion period which is a requirement for all students; however instruction in God’s Word and faith development are not limited to a class period but are integrated into the entire day.

The curriculum areas are reviewed on a five-year cycle, and changes are determined by the administrator and faculty after careful review.

Religious Affiliation

Hampton Lutheran School is supported by the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod congregations of St. Peter and Zion Lutheran Churches. We are members of the Nebraska District of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod.

We are also a National Lutheran Accredited School. Hampton Lutheran, like most private schools, has always been an approved school by the state of Nebraska. Accreditation, however, comes from the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, the governing body of our church and school.

Accreditation is a rigorous and lengthy process of self-study and self-improvement conducted by National Lutheran School Accreditation, the accrediting body for the LCMS. The accreditation process empowers schools to develop and improve high-quality and Christ-centered education.

History of Hampton Lutheran

In September 1969, Zion Lutheran School joined with St. Peter Lutheran School to form Hampton Lutheran School. Since 1969, HLS has been dedicated to providing a quality Christian education for children. You can view a detailed history of HLS here.
