We are a Lutheran school supported and operated by Lord of Life Lutheran Church. Both the church and the school are part of a larger Lutheran church body, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). We are also affiliated with a Lutheran High School, Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School (RMLHS), and we consider ourselves a “feeder school” for RMLHS.

It has been a trademark of our 300+ school of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) in the United States to test higher than any other schools around the country. Our own teachers have been trained at nationally accredited educational colleges. They use multiple teaching strategies to reach each individual child, and our small classroom sizes help to get that individualized attention. The children not only receive academic training, but also are taught in visual and performing arts, as well as physical education.

Our teachers show a deep care and concern for the whole child- spiritually, educationally, and socially.
