Lutheran West has a vibrant international student program.  We have hosted students from many different countries including China, Korea, Mexico, the Ukraine and Germany.  Each of our international students is placed with a host family affiliated with Lutheran West.

Host Families Provide a Nurturing Environment

Our host families provide a nurturing and caring environment for students to experience life and studies in the United States.  The faculty, staff and students of Lutheran West provide a welcoming environment to visiting students, encouraging their participation in educational, faith-building and extra-curricular programs.

Our Location: Rocky River, Ohio

Lutheran West is located in Rocky River, Ohio, a part of the midwestern Great Lakes region of the United States. Ohio is known as one of the Great Lake States. Rocky River is an affluent western suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, named for the river that forms its eastern border. Rocky River is conveniently located approximately nine miles west of downtown Cleveland and 15 minutes away from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

Cleveland is approximately 346 miles east of Chicago, Illinois and 462 miles west of New York City. Bordered by Lake Erie on the north and the Rocky River and Cleveland Metroparks on the east, the City’s location is unique.

Rocky River residents can boat, fish and swim on Lake Erie and take advantage of nine City parks and the Metroparks for woods, playground equipment, picnicking, fishing and countless other activities. Rocky River has beautiful residential homes, some along the Lake; new residential developments including clusters homes and townhouses; a wide variety of retail businesses for shopping; corporate facilities as well as other commercial developments; two theaters; many restaurants; and two private clubs (Westwood Country Club and Cleveland Yachting Club).

Lutheran West is blessed and embraces the cultural enrichment our international students bring to the school.

Lutheran West has partnered with Three W International to enroll international students from China.  If you are a student, parent, or agent from the region of China and are interested in applying to Lutheran West, please contact them by clicking here.
