Completed in November 2015


Carroll Lutheran School was in need of a new, and innovative, mobile responsive website to replace a more dated non-responsive platform. The school’s website content needed a strategic organization of the valuable information to better supply current and potential families with an understanding of the schools true value. This required not only development of a proper content management platform and theme, but also the migration of a large set of content, removing dated and unnecessary content along the way.


A team of experienced designers, developers and analysts collaborated together and developed an exceptional solution for the Carroll Lutheran School Website project. Open Professional Group removed the outdated and duplicated information from the old site and now the pages are logically and structurally organized. The OPG development team provided Carroll Lutheran School a custom content management platform derived from WordPress, along with a presentation layer that is powered by a fully mobile responsive custom theme. Other modern deployments, such as a custom “hero image” area, powered by a fully responsive slider control, have also been applied. OPG continues to work with Carroll Lutheran School to provide coordination in maintaining and updating the site.


OPG delivered powerful content management platform that continues to evolve and improve based on the school’s needs and their day to day operations. Clean, modern look, carefully organized navigation menu and pages are only a few features of the new build. OPG and CLS continue to work together to bring the best possible solutions for the target audiences defined by Carroll Lutheran School.
