Friends in Christ, 

It is my privilege to be serving students, parents, faculty and staff here at St. John's Lutheran School.   I invite you to lean more about this amazing place that has provided an academically challenging solid Christian education to thousands of students from the Tri-Cities area since 1947. St. John's Lutheran School is an out reach ministry of St. John's Lutheran Church and exists to equip students to positively impact their world for Jesus Christ through a Christ-centered, well-rounded education. 

We believe all students learn differently.  To meet these different needs, we use a multi-sensory approach in all classes from Preschool to 8th grade.  This style of teaching lends itself well to incorporating 21st Century learning skills into all lessons, guiding students to use creativity, higher level thinking and problem solving skills.  Technology is used in all classrooms to make learning fun, engaging, and interactive.  

We have been blessed with a faculty and staff of well-qualified, professional, credentialed Christian teachers, all of whom consider teaching their ministry.  All lessons are taught from the Michigan approved curriculum and are based on Common Core standards.  Lesson are taught from a Christian perspective, integrated with biblical truths and principles, and base on the basic doctrine of our Christian Lutheran faith.  

You will find the information on this website useful, but the best way to learn about St. John's Lutheran School is to contact us (616) 842-0260 or use the information link (request a tour) and make an appointment to take a tour of our school.  I guarantee you will be amazed at the quality programs available to your children at SJLS.  We look forward to having you join us in the eternally important process of a Christian Education.

In His Name,


Mrs. Laura Harvey
