Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe that Christian Education is a vital aspect of God's mission commanded by Christ to the church in His Great commission, “Go and teach.” The Christian school is one of the means whereby this mission is accomplished.
We believe that effective Christian education at Salem Lutheran School is achieved through quality programs and materials. These help relate the Christian faith to every aspect of life. This is the “plus” in Christian education.
We believe the Christian teacher is committed to the cause of Christ personally and professionally to provide a complete education, which meets each child's spiritual, social, physical, intellectual, and emotional needs.
We believe that Christian education is concerned with every field of human knowledge, all problems of life, and all areas of interpersonal and group relationships.
We believe that Christian education should teach each child his proper relationship to God and his fellow human beings.
We believe that Christian education should be unique in that there is scheduled time for instruction in Christian teachings; that it should provide personal contact with professional teachers who are themselves Christian.
We believe Salem Lutheran School is a ministry to and with families. As such, it is a model of Christian cooperation between adults and children. It is our hope that families experience a growing sense of joy, self-esteem, peace and forgiveness-all of which are integral components of Christianity.
