Greetings in the Name of our risen Lord!
Welcome to Living Word! I’m often asked a simple question: “Why Living Word?” Such a simple question, but one that is most easily answered by those who have partnered with us over the years in producing graduates who are high achievers: service professionals, community leaders, and captains of industry. To answer that question, I turn to our stakeholders: our parents, alumni, and students. I ask them, “What is Living Word?” or “Why did you choose Living Word?”
The answer came back, loud and clear! According to our hundreds of responses…..
Living Word is COMMUNITY. At Living Word, your child will be transformed through quality, lasting relationships with peers, teachers, and families. Living Word is a community of high achievers who support each other, challenge each other, and celebrate each other. Our graduates move on to new challenges with great confidence because of the confidence and interpersonal relationships they develop while attending our classes, performing on our stages, and competing in our venues.
Living Word is OPPORTUNITY. At Living Word, your child will be challenged and empowered to take advantage of a wealth of opportunity in the classroom, in co-curricular endeavors, and access to far more opportunity beyond graduation. Our record doesn’t lie. Living Word students have access to earning 24-96 university credits. These are transferable credits to the vast majority of colleges and universities resulting in the savings of tens of thousands of dollars. Some graduates enter college as the credit-equivalent of a sophomore or beyond. Others finish their degrees in only 3 years! Beyond the classroom, Living Word students are transformed into multi-talented young adults who compete with high quality opponents in athletics, engage the community through internship and service, and produce the highest of caliber fine arts, as recognized by their invitations to return to the Bradley Center, Miller and Kapco Parks, and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Living Word artists produce two major drama productions annually, travel throughout the Midwest on tour, and have been recognized with the highest honors by local and national visual arts competitions.
Living Word is ETERNITY. At Living Word, your child will grow in his/her walk with God. They will be transformed by the Word. Each day, our students witness the models of high caliber character, service, and standard that are our teachers and coaches. At Living Word, we recognize that your child is a unique Child of God bestowed with particular gifts and abilities. Our record proves that the formula for successfully maximizing that potential is to start with daily strengthening of relationships with our Creator through a practical religion curriculum, daily prayer and devotion, interactive chapel, and opportunities to practice servant-leadership.
There you have it! That is Living Word. It is who we are, why we are, and Whose we are. Now that you know us, tell us a little about yourself. Welcome to all that is Living Word.
