Prospective Families

Thank you for taking the time to inquire about St. Paul Lutheran School. Since our beginnings more than 125 years ago, we have dedicated ourselves to raising up the next generation of faithful Christian disciples while providing excellent academic education. Most recently, our school has witnessed to our largest student body and record numbers of new families. Our school is growing, our mission outreach is expanding, and we invite your family to be a part of our thriving St. Paul Family!

This school year has flown by, and it is hard to believe it is already time to share information about the 2018-2019 application process. The following letter is organized into question and answer form for ease of reading.

What is the registration fee for next school year? When do we enroll?
Priority Registration is March 1-31 for current school families. Registration fee is $300 per student for families who register during this time. Registration fee increases to $350 per student April 1.

New families who submit their application and registration fee March 1-31 are eligible for the Priority Registration discount. While new school families may submit an application and registration fee at any time, we will hold paperwork and payment until April 1. We will notify the family the first week of April to either confirm registration, or let them know of a waitlist for the class.

What is new for next year?
One very exciting change is the implementation of a new student information system. We are partnering with PraxiSchool to offer an all-inclusive system to our families. This will allow you to have real-time, online access to lunch accounts, tuition and fee accounts, grades, teacher communication, online payments, and much more. Following registration, you will receive information from the school regarding online enrollment for next year. In less than 10 minutes, you can complete much of the “summer enrollment” paperwork of the past, and ensure we are set-up and ready to roll by August. We are also excited to announce our new Mother’s Day Out program! This is perfect for families who are looking for part-time childcare options, or wish to introduce their three or four-year-old child to a structured school setting. Mother’s Day Out is Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:00 am to noon and follows our Pre-K structure, schedule, and curriculum.

It is a privilege and a blessing to serve at such an outstanding school and be a part of what God is doing here at St. Paul. As always, I welcome any questions you may have, and I look forward to welcoming your family to an even brighter year in 2018-2019!

Serving Him & You,
Mr. David Mueller, Principal

How can I help our school stay strong and healthy?
We consider our students, faculty, staff and you to be part of our St. Paul family. Just like any family, we are concerned for and desire a healthy, growing school ministry. In addition to your involvement in school and church activities through the PTF and other organizations, please consider:

  • Praying for your school and her ministry.

  • Actively thinking about other children who might enjoy attending St. Paul Lutheran School. This could be neighbors, friends, family, or just new people to your neighborhood.

  • Speaking well of your school. Let God use you to give more children the opportunity of a Christian education. As always, my door and email are open to any questions you may have.

I’m looking forward to an even brighter year in 2018-2019!

Serving Him & You,
Mr. David Mueller, Principal
