Our Mission and Philosophy

      

 

Our Mission

The Christ-centered mission of St. Paul’s Lutheran School is to assist parents in training disciples for here and eternity.  “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6  St. Paul's Lutheran School is committed to academic excellence and providing an environment of Christian learning.  We support parents in the development of their child's growth in all areas:  spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, emotional and aesthetical.  Throughout each school day, our Christian faith is integrated across the curriculum.

 

Our Philosophy

As a church and school family, we are united in our goal to encourage our children to respond to the Master's love as stated in Mark 12:30-31.  “Love the Lord your God with all your heart…”  

 

“with all your soul…”  WE BELIEVE that a child should be provided with the opportunities to worship God and encouraged to develop a personal relationship with the true God through Bible study and prayer. 

 

“with all your mind…”  WE BELIEVE that a child is prepared for life in this world when he knows, believes and trusts God’s plan of salvation and sees himself as part of that plan. 

 

“with all your strength…”   WE BELIEVE that the Christian school must minister to the whole child, emotionally, physically, spiritually, aesthetically, socially and academically. 

 

“and love your neighbor as yourself.”   WE BELIEVE that Christian education should help the child to understand and feel the joy that comes from work well done and that he may learn to be conscientious, hardworking and honest in everything he does to the glory of God and welfare of his neighbor. 

 

WE BELIEVE that each child is uniquely created by God and should be taught to celebrate the uniqueness of self and others. As members of God’s Family we will work together to further His Kingdom on earth by reflecting the love of our Master to each other and the world.
