ABOUT St. John’s Lutheran School

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

St John’s Lutheran School, conveniently located on Silas Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem, has been a ministry of St. John’s Lutheran Church since 1951.

St. John’s is National Lutheran School Accredited (NLSA), which speaks to the superior quality of our Christian and academic education. The school is also registered with the North Carolina State Board of Education.

When your child is accepted into St. John’s, your family becomes part of our family, and the safe, nurturing environment that comes with it. Our community approach helps our kids excel during their education here and beyond, becoming strong servant-leaders in their next levels of education, future jobs, church members, and active participants in the communities where they live.

Developing Minds.

St. John’s students are taught by an incredible staff of faculty members who are exceptionally qualified. We pride ourselves on our limited class sizes, and we work to expose students to an incredible variety of activities in and outside of the traditional classroom, including:

  • Computer classes in our Mac Lab
  • Community service projects
  • One of the area’s best private Christian school libraries
  • Physical education Family Life Center/Gymnasium
    complete with regulation-sized basketball court
  • Music classes

Serving Communities.

Our commitment as a Christian school is to provide a well-rounded education to prepare our students for future endeavors and be servant leaders. We strongly believe that being in service to others is critical to reaching that end.

Younger students learn community stewardship by working as teams on various service projects, such as gathering canned food for our neighbors in need. When it is COVID-safe to do so, older classes may venture out into the community in performing service projects for individuals in need or organizations.

Growing in Faith.

St John’s offers a Christ-centered worldview in all subject areas, which is enhanced by regular chapel services and religion classes.
