Founded in 1856, Luther Memorial School is the oldest parochial school in the Richmond region.
For almost a century and a half, a dedicated faculty has cultivated the scholastic, spiritual and social development of each student.
Luther Memoral School provides a strong development and academic foundation for children in preschool through eight grade.
We foster academic excellence and Christian Faith and values in a safe, loving, grace-centered family atmosphere.
Luther's spiritual underpinning provides a secure place for young children to go forth from home for the first time, for elementary students to explore and learn with guidance, and for middle school students to begin their adolescence.
