Welcome to Nebraska Evangelical Lutheran High School!

A school that exists to assist parents and congregations by providing Christian training in the skills and values necessary for loyal service to Jesus Christ for time and eternity.


Nebraska Evangelical Lutheran High School (NELHS) is a school that was established in 1979.  Throughout its history, NELHS has become known as a school where God’s Word surrounds our students, faculty, and staff. This, along with our location in the quiet, safe village of Waco creates an environment where it feels like a Christian family.   This environment is one that enables our students to accomplish great things- both in the classroom and outside of the classroom.  

In the classroom, we continue to produce students who score exceptionally well on college readiness tests and are taught from a Christ-centered perspective. Outside of the classroom, virtually every student has the opportunity and takes the opportunity to get involved in sports, music, drama, and clubs. These activities are also led by coaches and advisors who teach the students that everything that they do needs to glorify God.   Many of our students then continue their involvement in extracurricular activities at the next level of their education.

In summary, we are a school that preaches the Word of God first and foremost. We are a school led by a group of dedicated, qualified, and talented faculty and staff who love Jesus and love kids. We are a school that gives students the personal attention they need so that they can develop spiritually, emotionally, academically, and physically. If this is the kind of school that you are looking for, then contact us so that we can set up a time to show you our campus and meet our people.
