At St. John Lutheran School, our recurring theme is "Focus on discipleship".
It is our goal that our students know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior and, as a result of that faith, what it means to live as a disciple in this world.
The mission of St. John Lutheran School is to provide, in partnership with parents, a Christian education which guides children to know Jesus as their Savior through God's Word, and to strive for academic excellence in a life of service to Him.
It is our objective to "make disciples". To accomplish this, students at St. John Lutheran School will participate in fellowship, projects, activities, and study, which will help them more fully understand and visibly express the characteristics of discipleship in their lives.
