Crean Lutheran does not discriminate with regard to race, national origin or sex. CLHS admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students of the school.

Please Note: The recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act included a new provision for families who pay for private high school education. The 529 plan allows you to contribute post tax money to an account and the interest earned is tax free. Under the new tax bill, families will be able to withdraw $10,000 per child each year to pay for private school, including high school. Please consult with your tax advisor as to how this new tax law affects you and future 529 contributions. 

We look forward to working with you on your child's education at Crean Lutheran High School. If you have any questions about admissions or the school, please contact CLHS Admissions Director Tara Mathis,, 949-387-1199, ext. 2417. If you have questions regarding our financial aid process, please contact the Director of Student Accounts and Financial Aid, Pam Pindroh, at or 949-387-1199, ext. 2419.

In Christ,
The Financial Aid Committee
