The St. John Lutheran private middle school offers a complete middle school program through grade 6, built upon the foundations of academics and scripture to also achieve a biblical worldview in our students. Our students are taught all major subjects, such as Religion, Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science.

We have daily studies of the Scriptures, weekly chapels, and the integration of Christian values by knowledgeable, caring teachers.

Each of these disciplines creates a rich spiritual environment in which students have the opportunity to develop their relationship with Christ. Our students receive an excellent education while being saturated in the Gospel daily. It is our desire to see our students grow and mature Spiritually as well as academically.
