School Notes

  • Founded in 1904, St. Peter Lutheran School is the oldest private school in the Lodi area. At St. Peter we offer a complete, well-rounded education, a nurturing environment, and a family community not found anywhere else. Our Administration and Teachers are deeply committed to the intellectual, social, spiritual, and physical growth of our students.  We also expect our children to develop leadership skills, compassion and mutual respect for others.  We guide them to become responsible citizens in our community and in the world. 
  • Founded In Faith: Christian beliefs pervade everything that is done at St. Peter Lutheran School. Our Vision is To be a mission center helping outsider pre-Christians become insider Christ-followers who grow into a life of full devotion to Christ. Anyone can attend our school. Although we adhere to our Lutheran doctrine and heritage, this school is a ministry. Therefore, everyone is welcome. Whether you are Lutheran or non-Lutheran, churched or unchurched, this is a place of love and guidance.
  • Focused On Education: St. Peter Lutheran School has been accredited for the past 15 years with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the most recognized accrediting body for academic institutions in the country. At St. Peter students are engaged in integrated, and rigorous curriculum that includes a strong foundation in core academic disciplines: English, with an emphasis on writing, reading and public speaking; mathematics; science; social studies; and Christian theology. One of the great strengths of St. Peter Lutheran School over the years has been its ability to attract powerful intellects and passionate teachers to the faculty. 100% of St. Peter teaching staff are credentialed, many with post-graduate degrees. 
  • Developing Leaders: In addition, performing arts and visual arts, athletics, music, technology, outdoor education, and community service are important curricular components, enhancing the growth of our students' hearts, minds, and faith.
  • We invite you to visit our campus, join us for a tour, and meet our gifted teachers.
