Our Mission Statement

Preparing children for this life and eternity by offering a superior academic and spiritual education


Our Foundation & Purpose

St. Paul's Lutheran school stands upon the foundation of God’s inspired and inerrant Word as revealed in the Holy Bible.  The foundation of our faith is Jesus Christ.  We believe that all people are sinners and deserve eternal death.  (Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23).  But, God in His love sent His son Jesus Christ to save us from our sins.  John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” 

St. Paul's Lutheran School subscribes to the beliefs detailed in the publication “This We Believe” compiled by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.  
  
The purpose of our school is to offer a superior spiritual and academic education, preparing children for this life here on earth and for the life to come in eternity.  We prepare children for life on earth by challenging them to do the best with their God-given abilities that our loving God has given them.  Our academic courses are challenging but encouraging as children and parents see the steady progress of their children’s academic abilities. We also strive to prepare children for eternity by teaching God’s Word, not only in our religion classes, but also as it permeates throughout our entire educational curriculum.
