About Messiah Lutheran School
Messiah is a small, Christian school in Fairview Park, immediately west of Cleveland, Ohio. Our history of academic excellence in Christian community began in 1954.

We are best known for our family-like community environment, our close and caring relationships with students, our Christian faith integration, and our high academic standards. We maintain a strong relationship with our sponsoring congregation, Messiah Lutheran Church (a congregation of the ELCA).
Messiah Lutheran School aims to equip students for lives of world-changing Christian service. Together with their families, we facilitate students’ growth in mind, body, and spirit. We offer first-rate academic, faith, and co-curricular programs so that, confident in God’s abundant love in Christ, students are emboldened to use their well-developed skills, understandings, and character in new and diverse ways.
