- St. Paul's Lutheran School was the first school in Madison County, NE, founded in 1867 as part of the ministry of our congregation. From the beginning St. Paul's has valued Christian education because God's Word values Christian education (See for example Deuteronomy 11:18-19, Psalm 78:4, Proverbs 22:6, Mark 10:14, and Ephesians 6:4). That's why our school is and always has been designed to serve children's needs for both this life and the next.
- St. Paul's is a growing and thriving K-8 school that has a very well-respected reputation in the community, including one of the finest preschool programs in all of Nebraska. We are blessed with a passionate and skilled faculty that loves their work, their children, and their Lord. From the classroom to our Christ-centered mission, a St. Paul's Lutheran education offers your child a great start for mind and heart, and priceless benefits that last a lifetime and beyond!

When looking into what school to send our daughter, to us the decision was easy, because we felt strongly about her spiritual development. We knew that St. Paul's would provide the guidance and culture to do just that!

Growing up, I was given the opportunity to attend a parochial school and it left such a positive impression on me that when I had my own kids, it was a no brainer to seek that same education experience. I can say that was the main reason my wife and I chose to enroll both of our kids at St. Paul's Lutheran School. My kids are college and high school age now and they still bring up the memories they have from going to St. Paul's. I can only describe the atmosphere as a God-loving and very caring one. While it was important to get a good education, it was more about keeping our kids in touch with God and his word on an everyday basis and with the St. Paul's faculty, that was accomplished. At St. Paul's, there were numerous activities to keep the kids involved not only with reach other, but with God also. This was carried out on an individual basis as well as in group settings in the classroom, on the playground and perhaps even in the Principal's office. In the event that conflict arose, it was handled in a way that God was brought into the mix and from there, steps were taken to find a resolution. The staff at St. Paul's did an excellent job of working together and communicating on a regular basis. As you can tell, I have nothing but great things to say about St. Paul's and I would not have a problem with suggesting this school to anyone that wanted to give their kids a quality education as well as giving them the chance to hear God's word every day!

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
