Alumni Spotlight

Rooted, Remarkable Alumni

…Rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving…  Colossians 2:7

We are so proud of our rooted, remarkable Roadrunner alumni!  Lutheran High School of Orange County and Crean Lutheran High School are just two of the esteemed affiliate high schools our students have been accepted to upon graduation.

Hephatha uses the MAP test platform, offered through NWEA, which allows for real time results on student assessments three times a year in the subject areas of Math, Language Arts, and Reading.  Assessment results are then translated into instruction in the classroom to support academic growth.  As a result, many of Hephatha’s alumni are able to register in advance-placement classes such as Honors and AP upon entering high school, as well as IB Programs.  Furthermore, many of our alumni have gone on to receive degrees from an impressive list of colleges, such as Concordia, Notre Dame, Princeton, Swarthmore, Chapman, USC, UCLA…just to name a few.

Our Mission doesn’t stop upon graduation, though…  just like any proud family, our family here at Hephatha rejoices at the updates we receive from our Roadrunners!  Every struggle, growth opportunity, accomplishment and season is ours to pray for along with your family.  Click here to view our “Alumni” highlight on Instagram, which includes some of the updates we’ve been receiving from our alumni.  We hope you’ll enjoy!

Keep in touch, Roadrunners!

We know you are very busy, but you must understand that from the moments your parents entrusted Hephatha with your education, you became a part of our family. You will always be a part of this family: as preschoolers, college grads, new parents, grandparents…always.

Many of you have either just graduated, are getting ready to graduate, or have already started careers.   Some of you might even be engaged to be married, or are preparing for a Mission trip.  Whatever it is that God has placed in your life, we are so proud of you…we take your struggles, successes and endeavors to heart, and hope you will include us in those things so that we can continue to be here to help you along life’s way.

Likewise, keep up to date on “Hephatha’s Happenings” by following us on on FacebookInstagram, and YouTube!
