Our philosophy: Educating mind, body, and spirit

Education at Grace Lutheran School is a shared effort between teachers, students, parents and congregation. Together we seek a strong spiritual, academic, and moral foundation for our students, trusting in God’s promise in Proverbs 22:6: “Train children in the right way, and when old, they will not stray.”

We seek to educate the whole student—mind, body and spirit—and to develop in students a lifelong love of learning. We strive to provide an intellectually challenging environment that is responsive to the needs of all students. We believe that learning occurs in the classroom and beyond—on the playground and playing field, in worship, in song and in service.
