What is United in Praise?

In November 2019 the Great Plains Lutheran High School Association delegates approved both a revised Master Site Plan and a Financial Plan for a facility expansion which includes a performing arts/chapel/ music room to the west, an auxiliary gymnasium, kitchen and commons to the south and east, and four additional classrooms to the north of our current facilities. This effort is entitled United in Praise.

As we seek to carry our Christian education heritage forward, now is the time to take the next step of providing the quality facilities which will support our mission today and well into the future.

Using God’s Word, the ministry of Great Plains Lutheran High School touches the hearts of youth, making a lifelong impact that reaches into eternity.

Our Vision

Touching hearts. Impacting lives. Focusing on eternity.


This is Great Plains Lutheran High School.

GPL is also a school on the move:

United in Praise will provide the facilities to better serve a growing and diverse student body with excellent Christ-centered training and experiences that equip them for lives of Christian service.

"Great Plains is not just a Lutheran High School; it is a God blessed ministry that educates minds, nurtures souls, builds attitudes and character and develops the qualities and characteristics that our society so desperately needs." 

Christian Weseloh, Parent & Board Member
