The Definition and Benefits of Christian Education

Christian education has garnered some unfortunate misconceptions throughout the years. For St. Paul Lutheran, Christian education simply means:

Teachers at St Paul are dedicated to developing the whole student to become an independent learner.

We are committed to helping children develop their full potential as God's creation as we:

  • TEACH children to serve God and others.
  • EQUIP children with knowledge and skills for living.
  • ACKNOWLEDGE each child's uniqueness.
  • CREATE an active, Christ-centered learning environment.
  • HONOR GOD through active church participation.

We are wholly committed to providing and maintaining high academic standards in all subject areas consistently integrated with and related to, the teaching of God’s Word. Nevertheless, our teachers make sure they highlight the connections between the world around them and the Scriptures. Students see how God is not merely a character in the Bible, but the author of creation. He is the reason for math, science, and literature. History is profoundly shaped by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. In a Christian school setting, we are able to demonstrate those truths for our students. Other benefits to Christian education include:

  • Teachers are disciple-makers
  • Smaller class sizes
  • Encouragement to participate in church activities
  • The comfort of knowing your child’s teachers believe what you believe
  • Encouragement for parents to participate in the education process
  • A nurturing environment for students to grow in their faith and academic pursuits
