The St. Louis Mosaic Project is delighted to announce Lutheran High School North as the latest Mosaic Ambassador School. The St. Louis Mosaic Project Ambassador School program encourages member schools to reinforce an internationally welcoming and inclusive culture through pledges unique to each school. Opened in 1957, Lutheran High School North and Lutheran High School South, are united in ministry in the Lutheran High School Association of St. Louis. Lutheran North is a co-educational, private Christian school serving 250 students in grades 9 through 12 who live in the St. Louis region. Lutheran North’s student body includes American-born and international students with diverse ethnicity and cultural backgrounds.

 

As a Mosaic Ambassador School, Lutheran High School North is already committed to international outreach and integrating international students as part of its school community. Through the Lutheran High School Association International Program, students have come from more than 20 different countries since the program’s beginning. The school has an International Program Director on staff to assure that students are thriving academically, socially and emotionally. Lutheran High School North is also engaging its students through international experiences that encourage them to learn about different cultures abroad. Lutheran High School North is a champion of diversity and inclusion. In April 2018, Lutheran High School North student Yi (Tom) Xu received the Princeton Prize in Race Relations for a program he founded: Pioneers Associations of Sports & Scholars (PASS). This program has been successful in raising awareness of diversity in China with its summer basketball programs and PASS-Talk.

 

 

Additionally, Lutheran High School North will pursue opportunities for students to learn from foreign-born professionals, either through internships or speaking engagements. The school plans to revise materials to be more accessible and inclusive for foreign-born people and English language learners. The school plans to make its online presence more inclusive and share Mosaic Project news, materials and initiatives domestically and in recruiting efforts abroad.

 

 

 

About the St. Louis Mosaic Project

The St. Louis Mosaic Project was launched in 2012 in response to an economic impact report that showed St. Louis was lagging in immigrant growth and highlighted the potential economic benefits of increasing its foreign-born population. The Mosaic Project is a regional initiative that is professionally managed by St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, World Trade Center and a 27-member committee. Its goal is to transform St. Louis into the fastest growing major metropolitan area for immigration by 2020 and promote regional prosperity through immigration and innovation.
