St. John Ev. Lutheran School exists to provide Christ-centered education for children. It is a full-time educational agency, giving every child an opportunity not found in any public school – A Balanced Program for the SOUL, MIND, and BODY.
We believe that an education in secular learning and a solid spiritual and moral training based on the immovable foundation of Holy Scripture to prepare our children for a God-pleasing life here on earth and for eternal life in heaven is of the most importance.
The underlying philosophy of our Christian education is based on faith in Jesus, the Savior, by Whom we are reconciled to God the Father, and in Whom we are assured of forgiveness of sins and eternal life in heaven through the working of God's Holy Spirit. We aim to let God's wisdom, as revealed in the Bible, speak on all matters. This Christ-centered philosophy and God's blessings on all our endeavors should motivate our children to strive for a life on earth that reflects their love for God and all people.
In Christian education nothing is purposely neglected that is considered essential to a curriculum of elementary education. Based on the principle that "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Proverbs 9:10), a complete course of study is offered in the secular subjects commonly taught in grades K-8. Our school strives to do this in the conviction that it involves precious gifts of God which are to be cherished and utilized so the child can take his proper place in and render valuable service to the home, community, and church.
The chief objectives of St. John Ev. Lutheran School are as follows:
ü That each child grows in the knowledge of Jesus Christ as his personal Savior.
