The Lutheran School of Lexington has been teaching students since 2007. It was formed by the local LCMS Lutheran Churches to meet the need for a Grace-centered approach to education in Lexington. The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod has a strong history of operating schools.

Lutheranism had its beginnings in 1517, when Martin Luther, a doctor of theology and a monk in the Roman Catholic church, publicly called for the correction of errors in the medieval church. Luther was a pastor, professor, author, composer of hymns, and a reformer. He sought to return the Church back to the Bible as the sole source of its teaching. Only when the leaders of the Church would not listen and removed him from the church, did he form a separate group that was first known as "Protestants" and then known as "Lutherans." Luther is respected for the changes he promoted, but he is not idolized or worshipped.
- Justification by faith (that we are forgiven for our sins and given a relationship with God only by the faith God gives).
- That a person is not to live according to a formula of do’s and don’ts, but in the freedom of Christian love.
- The two basic teachings of the Bible are the Gospel (that which shows us our Savior and what He has done for us) and the Law (that which shows our sin and our need for repentance).
- Belief in all that Jesus Christ has done for us.
- Faith in Jesus Christ: a relationship with God our Father, which is strengthened by the Holy Spirit.
- Repentance: acknowledging sinfulness and need for a Savior.
- Seeking/knowing the Lord through the teachings of the Bible and living a life of love through Jesus Christ.
