School Notes:

  • We believe that every child needs to develop the skills and abilities for a life of vocation in service to God and neighbor. No child is too young to begin this process of exploration and growth. While the family is the primary place for learning, the Lutheran School provides a framework to accomplish this growth with a loving and caring commitment to the development of the whole child.

    We align our education outcomes with the Common Core Standards adopted by the state of Illinois and augmented by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Our curriculum seeks to use the best research-based strategies to challenge students for excellence in the learning process. 

    Success is evidenced by a student's ability to master knowledge, think critically and creatively express themselves while fulfilling the Standards. 

    We further believe that every child is only able to fulfill their potential when the education is experienced in the context of God's grace and forgiveness.  In baptism we are called into our vocation. The baptized life is one of devotion to truth, goodness and beauty.  They dynamic between vocation and mastery of the education standards results in a person who truly is best able to succeed. 

    Our mission is to provide a Liberal Arts education and teach Christian Values to prepare our students for success throughout life. 

    Our students are exposed to a range of academic disciplines that require them to master specific information, be able to think critically about the information, and develop the skills to creatively express themselves using the information.

    The disciplines preparing a student for success in the competitive environment of the 21st century include language (grammar and reading), literature, mathematics, sciences (natural and applies), history, physical education, art and music.

    The education process is founded in the truth of Jesus Christ as savior as presented in the Holy Bible.  We teach that the fullness of our humanity is expressed in baptism and nurtured by the Holy Spirit to develop each person's potential to live in vocation loving God and loving neighbor.
