Jerusalem Lutheran School has been a ministry arm of Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church without interruption since 1959. Our dedicated staff of teachers is committed to unveiling the wonders of God's created world of language, mathematics, science, history and the arts. Everything our students learn, pursue and do is guided by the unchanging truth of God's Word.

Why Choose Jerusalem School?

At Jerusalem Lutheran School we seek to prepare children not only for a lifetime but for an eternity.

comprehensive curriculum opens our students’ minds to the wonders of God’s created world of language, mathematics, science, history and art.

In a world full of moral laxity, our school is guided by the enduring principles of God’s eternal Word. Students are taught the
solid moral values found in the Holy Scriptures.

low student to teacher ratios enable our teachers to give students the one-on-one attention they so often need and deserve. Your child won’t be just another number.

Computers are available to every student, as we teach the children to use the gifts of our modern world in a God-pleasing and productive way.

Students can be involved in numerous
extra-curricular activities, including public speaking competitions, art fairs, science fairs, spelling and math competitions, and dramatic productions.

A full array of
sports are offered, including softball, soccer, basketball and track.
