Searching for a School?

We understand how difficult it can be to find a trustworthy and exceptional school for your child. To assist you we have identified some strengths that set us apart.

Instruction in God's Word

Christian truths and values are taught and modeled to our students and a key part of our school curriculum.

Individualized Instruction

Multi-grade classrooms provide an instructional setting that is better suited to the individual student. 

Safe Social Climate

We provide a safe setting with few discipline and bully problems where students can focus on the instruction and enjoy going to school.

Family Environment

With our teacher to student ratio and small class sizes, your child will feel right at home.

Active Students

Recess provides valuable time for students to give their brain a rest, opportunities to work on social and problem-solving skills, and time for exercise and free play using their imagination and creativity. Plain and simple – we unapologetically love recess!

Parent Testimonials

“Our children absolutely love attending Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran School. It is vividly displayed in their eyes and attitude. They get up before we do on school days in joyous anticipation and at the end of the day we have to drag them home because they don’t want to leave! They have been enriched by the Christian education offered at this school and their confidence and maturity are a testament to this.”
“We were very concerned that we would be unable to find a Christian alternative that was affordable and would give them an excellent education. From the first day we observed classes, we were delighted and impressed with this school. Our children have flourished and have not lost their childlike innocence as so many of their publicly educated peers have. We strongly recommend like-minded parents to consider this school.”
