School Notes

  • At Christ Lutheran School, Christian values are integrated throughout the day not just in the classroom setting.  We strive to transform children`s hearts with the message of Jesus` saving love. With this transformation, children emerge that are empathetic, reliable, responsible, trustworthy, self-motivated, and display proficiencies including problem resolution, and well-honed social skills. Emphasis is given to core content areas including the Bible, phonics-based reading program, Saxon Math, Science, Social Studies and Handwriting. Your child will also grow in the areas of music, computer and art - all taught by our specialized teachers. Physical education classes keep children`s bodies active and minds sharp.
