About St. Paul's School, Onalaska

What are you looking for in a school for your child? Since parents love their children deeply, it isn’t surprising they seek a school where their child will be loved. Jesus loves everyone, and he empowers those he loves to love others. The St. Paul’s staff loves their students because Jesus first loved them. Each of the children in our classrooms is a gift from God. We cherish the opportunities we have to share the love of Jesus each and every day.

St. Paul's Lutheran School is a Christian day school serving preschool through grade 8.  We are also proud to be part of the Luther High School association, a Christian high school located a few blocks from our campus in Onalaska, Wisconsin.  Our dedicated Christian teachers are serious in helping each child grow, no matter the starting point.  We offer instructional support for delayed and advanced learners.  Throughout the entire school day, students are surrounded with a biblically-based worldview.

Our school theme for the 2019-2020 school year is from First Peter. Jesus tells his disciples that people will hate them for being his followers (Mark 13:13).  The faith of Christians has been and will continue to be under attack.  Our source of truth, hope, and peace are in Scripture alone.  Christians study Scripture regularly to prepare themselves to respond to the attacks.  Our theme for 2019-2020 - God said it...I believe it -  will lead our school family through various aspects of the Bible to help the students feel more and more comfortable with the Word of God as our only source for absolute truth.

“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” 1 Peter 3:15
