School Programs

Word of Life Lutheran School offers both K-8 grade school at our main campus at Ascension Lutheran Church, as well as 3- & 4-year-old preschool located nearby our main campus, at Timothy Lutheran Church and St. Lucas Lutheran Church.


Word of Life offers flexible, full and half day preschool programs for 3- and 4-year old children. We maintain a small student:teacher ratio of 9:1 in our 3-year-old classroom and 10:1 in our 4-year-old classroom to ensure that your child is getting a personalized education from the very earliest age. Our preschool programs give children early exposure to a Christ-centered education while preparing them for kindergarten.

Grade School

K – 8th grade students are engaged in a rigorous curriculum presented from a Christian and Bible-based perspective. Students receive religious instruction daily in addition to a chapel service once per week. Kindergarten through 4th grade classes are mainly self-contained while our 5th-8th grade classes are departmentalized in math, science, literature, writing, and social studies.  Word of Life has an academic honor roll for students in grades 5-8.
