St. Paul’s Lutheran School offers a quality, Christ-centered education to our congregation and surrounding community. We prepare students for a life of service to their neighbor and an eternal life in heaven.
Both the head and heartbeat of our school is Jesus Christ. All that we do is done out of thanks for what Jesus has done for us. All that we accomplish is done through His grace and to His glory. Because of Christ, we are relentlessly determined to carry out our mission.

It is a privilege to teach the 3rd and 4th grade students at St. Paul’s Lutheran School The subject that I am most passionate about teaching is science.

Hello, my name is Kelly Wall and this is my first year serving as the Hot Lunch Coordinator at St. Paul’s and I am really enjoying it so far. My husband is Pastor Steven Wall. We met at my home church in Port Washington, WI while he was attending Seminary. His first call was to La Crescent, MN where we spent seven years and were blessed with three of our children, August, Robbie, and Elinor. His second call took us to Juneau, AK for six years. Our fourth child, Elaine, was born there. His third call brought us to St. John-St. Peter Lutheran Church in Cleveland, WI where we have been for almost three years. I love being able to encourage and support Steve in his ministry and serve in whatever ways that I can. I especially love singing, baking, and cooking.
Opening a Christian Day School to provide elementary Christian education for St. Paul’s children gained support as early as 1971, but the proposal at that time was defeated by a 36 to 30 margin. At the annual meeting in January 1974, a similar motion passed, and a call to a male teacher in March set the stage for opening the school in September. Theodore Lau was installed on June 30, 1974, and St. Paul’s School opened its doors in September for Kindergarten through 5th grade with 22 students.
In 1975 the congregation voted to call a second teacher and offer classes through eighth grade. Patricia Loersch accepted the call and was installed as the primary grade teacher on August 24, 1975.
In February 1981 Principal Theodore Lau accepted a call. The congregation called Theodore Berg, who was installed on July 25, 1981. In 1982 a third day school teacher, Janet Radue, was called to teach Kindergarten due to growing enrollment.
In 1995 the school expanded its ministry by beginning a four-year-old Kindergarten.
By 1993 the need for larger, handicapped accessible church/school facilities was becoming evident. A building committee was formed to consider whether to enlarge the church or build a new facility. Many options were discussed in the following years. In 2001 voters approved the purchase of 20.2 acres of property on Millersville Avenue in Howards Grove and began plans for constructing a new church, school, and multi-purpose gymnasium. Ground was broken in August 2002. When the Christian Day School began the 2003-04 school year in its new facilities, enrollment including preschool numbered 60, an increase of 15 from the previous year.
Since moving into the new school facilities enrollment has continued to grow, and new faculty and staff have been added. St. Paul’s Lutheran School became a member of the Wisconsin School Choice program in 2018, increasing access to families who feel their children are better served at our school, where Jesus is the cornerstone of our curriculum. We thank the Lord for his continued blessings on the school ministry at St. Paul’s!
