Philosophy and Objectives

We believe that God reveals Himself in the Holy Scriptures.

We believe that St. John's is unique because we witness Christ's presence with us.  We meet Him  in the Good News, share Him with others in the community, and praise Him in worship.

We believe that all children deserve an education that fulfills their intellectual as well as their spiritual needs.

We believe that our priority is spiritual, but also seek to provide the highest quality academic education which will help children develop their God-given gifts and abilities.

We believe that the spiritual growth and development of children as it applies to their personal relationship with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the primary function of our school.  This spiritual growth would be demonstrated in:

  • Belief that reflects a oneness with Christ both in their private as well as in their social life.

  • An eagerness to participate in worship and study opportunities within the church.

  • A willingness to serve their church in capacities appropriate to their age level.

  • An awareness of their obligation to witness to those outside of their Christian community.

We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children, and that our role is one of support and professional service to the family.

We believe that the role of the Lutheran teacher is to model the loving example of the Master Teacher, Jesus Christ, is:

  • Guiding, directing, and instructing the children.

  • Working with parents to foster the spiritual, academic, and social growth of their children.
