Who We Are & What We Believe

First Lutheran School sets the highest standards of spiritual, academic, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth.  Our mission is to provide a Christ-centered, Bible-based academically excellent program where through nurturing and encouragement, children grow to spiritual maturity modeling the morals, values, and characteristics of a Christian lifestyle.  Founded in 1853, First Lutheran School provides a safe and nurturing academic environment for our students.  Challenging academics, small class sizes, a committed faculty, and a family oriented school community allow our students to reach their full academic potential.

It is not required that a student or their family be of the Lutheran faith to be able to attend First Lutheran School.  Children and families of all denominations are welcome at First Lutheran, including those who do not have a church home.  First and foremost First Lutheran School is a Christ-centered school.  We believe that we are all children of God and therefore afforded the gifts that Jesus won on the cross – forgiveness of sins and eternal life.  This is not something we deserve, but a gift given to us.

First Lutheran is also a Bible-based school.  By this we believe that the Bible is God’s true, infallible word and we use it often as we educate our students on God’s will for their lives.  Our school motto is “Christ At The Center Of All We Do!” and that is where we strive to keep Him – at the center of our lives.

First Lutheran School seeks to provide an educational environment where:

  • Children grow to spiritual maturity by modeling morals, values, and characteristics of a Christian lifestyle.
  • A committed and caring faculty provides challenging academics so students can reach their full educational potential.
  • The whole child is educated to enrich our students’ achievement.
  • Children have the opportunity for academic success.

First Lutheran School does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, or age in administering our educational policies, programs, activities, and employment practices.
