Grades: PK-8 | 170 students
St. Matthew Lutheran Church has operated a Christian Day School since 1949.
Over that time we have had the privilege of helping hundreds of families to develop children into strong Christian men and women.
We believe that each child is a gift from God and that it is our privilege and responsibility to prepare that child to be Christ's ambassador as they work to fulfill their part of the great commission.
We believe that in addition to spiritual growth, St. Matthew must nurture its children in their academic, physical, emotional, and social development.
We believe that to offer an effective Christian education, we must partner a quality educational staff with active and supportive parents to achieve common goals.
