Tel: (715)743-2501
Grades: PK-8 | 45 students
St John's Lutheran School has as its goal the same goal as St. John's Lutheran Church.
Specifically, our goal is to do the Lord's work in winning and preserving souls for heaven.
We are commanded to go into all the world to teach all people to "observe all things whatsoever I (Jesus) have commanded".
Therefore, St. John's Lutheran School in all its courses and sponsored activities has a two-fold purpose first, to nurture children with a Christ-centered education in the truths of God's Word so they may be equipped to witness their faith to others; and second, to reach out with the Gospel to those in our community who are without a church home, or those who desire a Christian education for their children.
St. John's Lutheran School is owned and operated by the members of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
Our school provides a Christ-centered education from preschool through eighth grade.
The mission of St. John's Lutheran School is to assist parents in the nurturing of their children's faith and growth in Christian living through a Christ-centered education, all to the glory of God.
