StJLC School

St. John Lutheran School

Let us proclaim God’s Word as we help children learn to read the Scriptures so that they might have a relationship with thee, Jesus; the Word who became flesh. May we help students discover God’s incredible creative order so that we might worship and glorify His name in all that we are and in all that we do.

If you are looking for a solid Christian education, small classroom sizes, one-on-one attention, close-knit ‘community’, and excellent teachers, St. John Lutheran School is the place for you!

About Us

 

StJLC SchoolMission Statement:

Know Jesus and Make Jesus Known through Academic Excellence and Christian Character

 

Curriculum:

We will use the abeka® curriculum with hands-on activities, experiments, field trips and real world learning opportunities.

 

The Abeka curriculum offers many benefits:

  • It’s structured on a Christian foundation.
  • It’s broad and will help your child build skills in a variety of subjects, from art to engineering.
  • It’s exciting and keeps children engaged and entertained using a variety of activities including coloring, singing, poetry, puppetry, and more!
  • It’s proven through research to be effective for children with all different learning styles and abilities.

 

Within the Abeka curriculum, there are three main focuses of learning:

  • Intellectual: The Abeka curriculum approaches learning from a practical, traditional approach and helps students develop on an intellectual level.
  • Moral: This curriculum will instill good character, teach students to display integrity and discern right from wrong, and provide them with a strong moral foundation.
  • Spiritual: St. John Lutheran School believes that spiritual growth comes by loving God with all one’s heart, soul, and mind and loving one’s neighbor as oneself. The Abeka curriculum reflects this core teaching of Christianity by incorporating scripture with modern examples of application.

Background information:

Why a St. John Lutheran School?

Our congregation’s mission to Know Jesus and Make Jesus Known springs from the Great Commission (Matthew 28). Finding places and spaces to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ is what we are about!

At St. John Lutheran School our faith is founded in the teachings and scriptures of the Bible. We believe our faith grows when we apply what we learn to our lives here on earth. We are a part of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC) and the Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC). Our mission is that we all know Jesus and that we make Jesus known.

The NALC has embraced four core values which shape our common life: Christ Centered, Mission Driven, Traditionally Grounded, and Congregationally Focused. We are a church centered on the unique Gospel of Jesus Christ, animated by missions and evangelism, grounded in the 2,000-year tradition of Christian faith, and organized chiefly to serve our congregations. Learn more about our beliefs and teachings on the NALC (North American Lutheran Church) website HERE.

In creating a school, we join a long history where “Lutherans continue to value and promote education. The family is still seen as the first and primary place where faith is taught and nurtured.” However, “Each day Lutheran schools support families in the task of teaching and nurturing faith in their children, as the school becomes a workshop of Christian love. In these schools, children experience God’s love and forgiveness, even as they learn math, history, language, arts, and science.” (Lutheranism 101, by Scot A. Kinnaman)

Where God’s Word is lived and taught, Christ’s presence is experienced. As Luther said,

“Whenever God’s Word is taught, preached, heard, read, or meditated upon, then the person, day, and work are sanctified. This is not because of the outward work, but because of the Word, which makes saints of us all. Therefore, I constantly say that all our life and work must be guided by God’s Word, if it is to be God-pleasing or holy.” (LC 1 92)

Why choose StJLC School?

 

At St. John Lutheran School we value the education of every child that walks through our doors. Realizing that parents carry the basic responsibility to educate their children, we also understand that teachers play a large role in helping children develop foundational skills and knowledge. We aim to serve as an extension of a child’s home and church.

 

The StJLC School has an experienced, caring school staff. Our classes will offer low student to teacher ratios so that each student will receive the personalized attention and individualized instruction they need and deserve.

Benefits of mixed grade classrooms include:

  • Increased social and emotional understanding
  • Collaborative and independent learning with greater ease
  • Positive peer interactions
  • Development of social, emotional, and verbal skills and self-esteem
  • Learning at their own pace
  • Improved student attitudes toward school and school work
  • Improved academic outcomes

How often do people divide by age group in the real world? Not too often! Mixed-age classrooms better prepare children for the “real world,” in which they’ll interact with other people of a range of ages, experiences, and abilities.
