St. John Lutheran School

Shaping Lives for Christian Service Through Academic Excellence.

About SJL

St. John Lutheran Church established its Christian school in the fall of 1864 to provide the children of the congregation and other children of the community with a Christ-centered education.

The school has grown from one teacher in one classroom to one classroom per grade, including a preschool and year-round child care program. The members of St. John financially and prayerfully support the school as a ministry to Christian families and as a mission outreach to the community as encouraged in Matthew 28: 19-20.

St. John Lutheran School, locally known as SJL, is state-recognized and also carries voluntary accreditation through the National Lutheran School Accreditation Commission - a rigorous process that requires verification of ongoing improvement.
