St. Marks Lutheran Church started a Lutheran elementary school in September of 1984. The elementary school is currently a one room school with classes for students in grades 1st-8th. The teacher is Mr. Nathan Bitter and assisted by Pastor Lon Kuether and volunteers from the congregation. The schools primary purpose is to aid in the Christian education of the members of St. Marks Lutheran. If space is available, children of parents who are not members may enroll. This past school year there were 17 students enrolled in 1st through 8th grade. St. Marks offers a full curriculum that includes math, science, social studies, reading, phonics, language, spelling, handwriting, and, most importantly, the study of Gods Word. The Word of God classes for the 1st through 4th graders are the teaching of Bible stories. The 5th 8th grade students have catechism instruction in addition to these bible story lessons. Because we are teaching the children our church doctrine parents that are not members of St. Marks Lutheran Church need to meet with Pastor Kuether a few times before their child can be enrolled, so that the parents and Pastor Kuether can discuss some of the key points that will come up in the religion classes.
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.
