Welcome to St. John’s Lutheran School!
We are glad that your internet search has brought you here.

St. John’s School has served the families of Jefferson and the surrounding communities for 130 years with excellent, Christ-centered education. We partner with parents so that children are fed daily with the Word of God, trained for life in the world, and grow to live with Jesus more and more each day.
Feeding with the Word
Our purpose as a Christian school is to share Jesus with our students, so that they know him, trust him, and love to serve him. Shining in our weekly chapel services, daily devotions, and Bible studies; permeating all our subjects; and supporting our relationships, is the Biblical truth that Jesus is our Savior, Creator, King, and Friend. Christian education feeds the soul with the Word.
Training for the World
At St. John’s we know that education is much more than content. Thinking critically and creatively to solve problems, communicating and collaborating with teammates, and developing attitudes of respect and responsibility are important components of our curriculum and programs and promote the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of our students. Christian education trains the child to use his or her gifts to serve in the world.
Living with Jesus
Life is full of teachable moments. As we feed with the Word and train for the world, our actions and interactions give many opportunities to live with Jesus. Weekly buddying activities, monthly and quarterly mission goals, and special service projects show how we can help our neighbors the next seat over, within our city limits, and even around the world. Christian education leads to lives of loving service.
Please browse our website and see what St. John’s has to offer your child and your family. We hope that you will come and see the St. John’s difference—21st-century learning; timeless faith and service--and join our school family.
In Christ’s service and yours,
Peter Lemke
