Philosophy/Belief Statement:

St. Paul Lutheran Church provides Lutheran education in reponse to the commands of God and His love. The church believes that education is the most effective means to show children that they are creations of God and for them to know God's grace through Jesus Christ. The congregation believes that Lutheran education leads children to identify themselves as forgiven and reconciled children of God called to witness, to forgive, and to reach out with God's love to fellow students, to parents and guardians, to teachers, and to the community at large. The congregation believes that in a Lutheran school children are given the confidence to believe that they have been gifted with a sound mind and an impressionable personality, with definite physical, mental, social, and mental needs, which can be nurtured and developed. Finally St. Paul Lutheran Church believes that Lutheran education provides a positive teacher student relationship based in the love of Christ. This relationship sets the tone for relationship between classmates, family members, and others in the community.

School History:

They believed that Christian education was an essential component of serving the community in which they were located. The school has been in continuous operation since then, although at one time it was a joint operation of St. Paul Lutheran Church and First English Lutheran Church . St. Paul Lutheran School continues to serve the Faubourg Marigny as well as the surrounding communities.
