Clarinda Lutheran School

  • Clarinda Lutheran School provides an education firmly based on Biblical truths to build Christian faith, Christian character and academic excellence.
  • A Christian school provides the best and fullest opportunity for the education of the whole child (physically, mentally, socially and spiritually) for his or her whole life.
  • While the child studies the secular subjects, he/she is still God's child who must learn that all knowledge and life are from God and must be used to glorify God.
  • A Christian school provides the most desirable school situation by having the children under the influence of God's Word every day throughout the week, in a school in which the Christian Spirit is a part of all the relationships and instruction of the children.
