Kindergarten – 8th Grade Education

St. John Lutheran School’s Kindergarten through 8th Grade program provides diverse learners a Christ-centered, learner-focused, academically excellent education. With limited class sizes, our qualified and experienced teachers create a personalized academic approach to meet the needs of each student.

Open to the Community
Our program is open to the community and welcomes all kindergarten through 8th grade students.

High Academic Standards
Our school has consistently maintained high standards in its academic programs. Three times a year, our students participate in the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) testing program through the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) to measure academic growth throughout the school year and from year to year.

Special Activities
In addition to academic studies, our students take part in physical education, art, and music programs, including the option for 6th-8th graders to participate in the band program at Rogers City Public Schools. Through our partnership with St. Ignatius Catholic School, middle schoolers have the opportunity to join team sports such as basketball and volleyball.

Field Trips
Throughout the year, our students at all grade levels take meaningful and educational field trips throughout northern Michigan. Students have visited the NOAA Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary, the USGS Hammond Bay Biological Station, the 2023 Christmas tree cutting in Onaway for the Michigan Capitol lawn, Lake Huron Shore, Island Park, and Woodland Confectionary, among others. Yearly excursions include an 8th grade Washington, D.C. trip and an outdoor education group camp at Camp Nissokone for 4th-8th grade students.

Financial Assistance
Financial assistance is available through scholarships from St. John Lutheran Church. In addition, we help families explore other avenues to offset the cost of tuition including our participation in the Raise Right program. More than 45% of our families receive tuition assistance.
