EXCELLENCE ON AND OFF THE ICE

A unique blend of elite hockey training and academic excellence, Orange Lutheran’s Lancer Ice Academy offers a high school experience like no other. By dividing coursework between online and on-campus classes, Ice Academy students can take advantage of top-notch hockey training in addition to a Christ-centered education with all of the social events, academic support, counselors, teachers, activities, and campus facilities that Orange Lutheran has to offer.

ELITE HOCKEY TRAINING

OLu Hockey, currently in its 11th season, competed at the USA Hockey High School National Championship in 2014-2017, 2020 (qualified but canceled due to COVID), and 2021 and are four-time CAHA State Champions and two-time CAHA State Finalists.
