St. Mark Lutheran School nurtures children in faith and intellect, equipping them for Christian lives of service. We strive to provide our students with opportunities to develop mentally, physically, socially, and spiritually in a Christ-centered and family-friendly environment. The training we offer not only builds a foundation for success in school and life but also instills a firm foundation in God's Word and solid faith in their Savior, Jesus Christ.
The mission of St. Mark Lutheran School is to assist parents, both in the congregation and community, in providing their children a Christ-centered education, preparing them for life with their Savior here on earth and eternally in heaven.

"I truly consider it a privilege to serve as the principal and a teacher at St. Mark Lutheran School. Throughout my teaching ministry, I have been blessed to serve God's people as they entrust their most precious earthly treasures, their children, to our care at our cherished schools. Seeing students grow in their faith as they study Luther's Catechism and the vital doctrines the Bible teaches gives me special encouragement knowing the Holy Spirit works through God's Word and connects our students to their Savior, Jesus.
