Our Mission & Vision
About Risen Savior

Risen Savior Lutheran School is built on the solid foundation of God’s Word, the Bible. At the core, Risen Savior exists to assist parents in the spiritual upbringing of their children. The education your child receives is Christ-centered. The students not only participate in a thorough study of God’s Word, but God’s Word permeates all areas of the curriculum – science, social studies, language arts, and mathematics.  Every class provides an opportunity to study some component of God’s creation and praise him for it.

Risen Savior is built around a core mission statement and guided by our philosophy, vision, and most specifically our objectives. These statements provide the structure for all that is done at Risen Savior. The school’s mission, philosophy, vision, and objectives are reviewed annually by our school board and faculty.

Our Mission
Uniting hearts and hands in Jesus Christ, Risen Savior Lutheran School exists to equip children to be life-long learners of God’s world through a Christ- centered curriculum and to reach out to families with God’s Word.

 

Our Philosophy of Education

We believe the following principles are foundational to our Christian philosophy of education:
  1. God’s love for all people, as revealed in Jesus Christ, compels Christian life and service in God’s World.
  2. The Bible is the source and standard of truth in God’s world.
  3. Children learn God’s love and grow in Christian faith only through God’s Word.
  4. As children grow in faith, they experience God’s forgiveness, express their love to God and their neighbor, and accept themselves as God’s forgiven children.
  5. God challenges our children to discover their gifts, develop their talents and use their skills to the best of their God-given abilities.
  6. Through worship and life-long study of the Bible, God equips our children for lives of Christian service as they go out into God’s world to pursue all fields of learning.
