Why Students Should Read The Classics

Thursday, 20 August 2020 19:48

This has been one of the most challenging years for parents in a long time. Schools throughout the country are struggling to navigate their state and county requirements for providing remote and in-person instruction. Many districts have opted to use a combination of in-person and remote learning. All of the options for public schools have been difficult and, at times, quite frustrating for parents and students. 

We are grateful and excited to offer in-person classes at St. Paul Lutheran School beginning August 26th. Our small class sizes help us practice safe distancing for our students and teachers. We are committed to creating a safe and healthy environment for students, taking every precaution we can to protect each child, teacher, and staff member. We will be quick to communicate any changes and have plans in place for flexibility. 

As we return to some semblance of normalcy, we are excited to do what we do best: provide an excellent academic experience in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment. In this post, we are discussing literary classics and why they are vital to your child's education. 



How to Get Back on a School Schedule

Sunday, 14 June 2020 19:40

There has been nothing traditional about 2020 for students. This has been one of the strangest school years in the history of public school and certainly within any of our memories. The pandemic led to a situation where students were at school one day like normal, then, they never returned to campus. Parents scrambled to learn how to help their children study remotely while simultaneously navigating the trials of working remotely. Packed schedules involving school and extra-curricular activities suddenly opened, and families have spent more time together than they have in years and maybe ever. For some who remained healthy, this time has presented a welcome break. For others, they are more than ready for their children to return to school. Most of us are somewhere in between those two places. 



There is a multitude of concerns parents must answer when considering school choices for their children. From curricula to athletics to class size, we want to know everything about every institution before we enroll our little ones. It is deeply troubling that one of those questions is whether a private school are safer than public institutions. Even though school violence is in the news cycle too often, it is, fortunately, statistically unlikely for your children to experience it. Nevertheless, there are other metrics measuring, and parents should be made aware of them.

Generally speaking, your child's school is a safe place, whether it is private or public; however, private schools are measurably safer. In this article, we are discussing what you need to know about private and public school safety.



This academic year has been unusual for everyone to say the least. As Northville residents have practiced the social distancing recommendations and mandates of our local and state governing officials, the end of the spring semester is not at all what we expected. At St Paul Lutheran, we are praying for everyone's safety and the health of our students and faculty. We are also praying for a return to school in the fall.



Northville is a great community that values quality education. We want the best for our children and expect their institutions to provide the best academic experiences for students. That is one of the reasons many parents are seeking alternatives to traditional public education. It is that instructors are anything but amazing teachers; rather, we want to ensure every part of the process benefits the children. 

Christian private education is one such alternative that many parents choose. There are many benefits as well as misconceptions about Christian education; therefore, in this article, we will provide a simple definition for Christian education and why you should consider it for your child.
