Hephatha Lutheran School is located in Anaheim Hills, California.

We serve Early Childhood through Eighth Grade.
We are a small school where your child is nurtured and loved as an individual,
with big programs that allow your child to grow and learn in God’s love!

Hephatha Lutheran School is a private Christian school that was established in 1983 with a vision to minister and educate the young people in a new, booming community. Through the years, the school has grown and become an environment that the faculty members, church members, and attending families feel blessed to call home.

A large percentage of Hephatha’s graduates attended Lutheran High School of Orange County or Crean Lutheran High School.   After high school, our graduates have attended various places for higher education such as Concordia, Notre Dame, Princeton, Swarthmore, Chapman, USC, UCLA…just to name a few.

Information received from graduates and their families is that students that attend Hephatha for their elementary and or middle school years are well-prepared for high school and higher education. This is consistent with Hephatha’s school philosophy and our expected school-wide learning model, “HLS”:

Hephatha Lutheran School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and National Lutheran School Accreditation. The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) awarded Hephatha Lutheran School a full 6-year accreditation.

Hephatha’s average score for all grades taking the IOWA is 87%, which puts us in the top 15%, nationally.  Our Middle School ranks in the 87th percentile overall:  89% for Math and Language.  Language is our highest in all grades.


The mission of Hephatha Lutheran School is, by the grace of God, to build up the family of Christ, to grow in faith, to assist families in discipling their children in a Christian Community, and to provide an enriched educational experience wherein all will find identity, purpose, and power for their lives in Christ by living in grace and in the knowledge of Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
