School Notes

  • St. Paul`s Evangelical Lutheran School exists to "preach Christ crucified" (1 Cor. 1:23) "for the salvation of all who believe" (Romans 1:16) to school-aged children of all backgrounds from Menomonie and the surrounding area. St. Paul`s church began our school shortly after its founding in 1877 and we have upheld the daily teaching of academic subjects immersed in the Word of God because "all scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, correcting, rebuking and training in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16). Our academic focus is on an excellent and classical tradition of Lutheran Schools that began with Martin Luther himself over 500 years ago. Academic studies focus on the classical trivium (logic, rhetoric and grammar), reading a broad base of literature across its history and genres, mathematics based upon ability through algebra or geometry, the arts (including visual, musical, and performing arts), and physical education. Co-curricular activities include a full range of sports for grades 4-8, which at a small school guarantee playing time for all who wish to develop these skills. Sometimes athletes from the third grade fill a roster, expanding the opportunity. Kindergarten and Early Childhood students begin a journey in growing Biblical faith and excellence in academics which culminates in Confirmation and graduation from 8th grade from St. Paul`s Ev. Lutheran School and gaining membership in St. Paul`s Lutheran Church. As part of WELS, many of our students go on to St. Croix Lutheran High School in West St. Paul, but most go on to advanced placement at Menomonie High School. Non-member Christian families from our community also find value in our approach to education, not as an alternative in education but an eternity in education. Join us at St. Paul`s in promoting the good news of Jesus` blessings to all!
