Mission and Philosophy


“We, as Disciples of Christ, will create a quality education in a Lutheran environment where the love of Christ will be proclaimed through the integration of faith and life.”


The central purpose and goal of Carroll Lutheran School (CLS) is to provide a quality education where the love of Christ sets the tone to develop, cultivate, and nurture all aspects of learning, including spiritual, academic and social. We strive, with God’s blessing, to support students to achieve their maximum potential so they will make morality, mutual respect and knowledge of right and wrong an integral part of their everyday lives. We believe that a good school fosters an atmosphere of love as well as learning. We strive to ensure that Carroll Lutheran School is such a school.

We provide a proven and accredited academic curriculum supplemented with activities that support and challenge learners.  Each student is valued as a unique individual and as a child of God. A top priority is placed on recognizing and respecting learning differences among students.  Our staff not only teaches up-to-date learning strategies but guides students to achieve attitudes of self-confidence, discipline and responsibility while serving as role models for their students.

Our school will be diligent when it comes to innovations in education, studying and evaluating trends and implementing changes where needed in curriculum and resources. We provide faith studies/Bible, reading, language arts, math, science and social studies as well as art, general and instrumental music, physical education,computer literacy and media services. Also included are service and mission projects, and our students are encouraged to take a positive, active role in the church and community.

Our school and faculty have a family ministry as part of its mission. We endeavor to foster the relationship between church, school, and home by providing many and varied opportunities for parent/family and community partnerships.
