We believe that the development of a child is a dynamic process involving mind and body, spirit and relationships. The Bible teaches us about growing up with this holistic perspective. Jesus said it this way, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." (Mark 12:30). This is the foundation of St John's Lutheran School and its philosophy of education. Your child will be well prepared to excel in high school given St. John's combination of traditional personal instruction enhanced by modern educational technology. Our curriculum is chosen to not only teach basic skills, but also to promote critical thinking. Learning is enhanced through the Accelerated Reader Program, science labs, computer science, Spanish, and educational field trips.
The curriculum is advanced and highly academic. Graduates from St. John's attend many different high schools. Both the academic program and the study skills learned prepare students for future academic success. For the specific curriculum taught at each grade, please contact the school at 708-354-1690 or at our website: Kidssoar.com.
Our Mission is to Meet Jesus, Experience the support of a Church and school, and to Live as His disciples. Meet, Experience, Live!
Student Life Information
St. John's believes one way to live out our mission of Meet, Experience, Live! is to have our students design and participate in service projects. We call this program Eagles in Action. Each class picks a project that will help others. Students have packed food at Feed My Starving Children, served at a soup kitchen in Pilsen, served at Maria's Shelter, cooked and served a meal at Ronald Mc Donald House, and made blankets for Phil's Friends. No one is too young to serve others.
Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
