St. James Lutheran School

St. James Lutheran School gives a thorough training in all subjects, for God desires His children to develop and use all of their God-given abilities.
The child's relationship with God, parents, teachers, administrators and other students makes a significant impact on a child's mind, attitude and lifestyle.
It is the conviction of St. James Lutheran School that if God is to be in our living, then He must also be in our learning.
St. James Lutheran School offers a well-rounded curriculum with a Christian emphasis.
We believe that the Christian Day School is one of the best ways to "train up a child in the way he should go",., "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." We believe Christian education not only helps children, but also helps families grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
