St. Paul's Lutheran School exists to assist families through Christ-centered education.
At St. Paul's, the Word of God is the foundation of all we do.
As all academic disciplines are taught from a Christ-centered point of view, the Holy Spirit secures in our hearts and minds his holy Word.
Good attitudes and behavior, good stewardship, appropriate dress and speech, proper preparation for class, and adherence to school guidelines are just a few ways God's Word is evidenced in our lives.
