Statement of Purpose

The primary purpose of St. Paul’s Lutheran School is to teach and encourage the children of our school to praise, honor, serve, and trust God through the teaching of His Word for this life and for life hereafter.

It is also the purpose of our school to assist parents in training those entrusted to our care through the faithful teaching of God’s Word, thereby nurturing faith which will show itself in fruits of the spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control). Galatians 5:22-23

It is also our purpose to teach the children of our school to be Gospel witnesses in the world through Word and example, and to be Christian stewards of time, money, and ability.

And finally, it is our purpose to teach, from the Scriptural viewpoint, the school subjects which best help to achieve the school’s purpose and objectives.

Philosophy and Objectives

St. Paul’s Lutheran School is a Christian school maintained and operated by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). It exists for the purpose of giving the children in its care a thorough Christ-centered education. This rests on the fundamental truth that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

If our lives are to focus on Jesus, if all that we do is to glorify and serve our Lord, if we want to prepare our children to live such lives, then St. Paul’s School must help to accomplish the purpose of helping our children fear the Lord. This is done as St. Paul’s Lutheran School strives to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To provide diligent instruction in God’s Word.

  3. To encourage and train students to become interested and intelligent Bible readers.
  4. To teach the students to communicate effectively.
  5. To teach the school subjects which best help to achieve the school’s purpose and objectives.

  7. To provide students with a Christian school community in which God’s Word rules supreme.
  8. To give students an opportunity to live their faith in daily Christian fellowship.
