St. John Lutheran School

St. John School exists to "Connect people in the heat of Jesus." We strive to prepare our students academically, socially, physically, mentally, but most importantly spiritually for the world around them.
We begin our day with an all-school prayer. Students are then greeted over the speaker and recite a Bible verse of the week together. Classes engage in daily prayer, religion lessons, scripture memory recitations, and devotions. Chapel services are held once a week.
Our congregation subsidizes nearly 80% of the cost to educate regardless of the students' church affiliation.
St. John excels in academics boasting of 3-years running with a school-average MAPs test score at or above the 90th percentile nationally.
Our students have the opportunity to engage in the athletic arena in the areas of football, volleyball, wrestling, cross country, basketball, and track & field.
On-site childcare is available from 6:30a.m. to 6:00p.m. via In His Arms Childcare.

School Reviews

I love seeing my son come home talking about Bible stories and getting lost in chapter books. We are blessed that we can send him to a school where his faith can be reinforced and he can have dedicated teachers to push him!
