Students at St. Paul are trained in God’s Word and prepared for the world after St. Paul. Our curriculum is focused on enriching our students in both of these areas.
The curriculum and courses of study at St. Paul Lutheran comply with the standards of the state of Missouri. Curriculum summaries are available for each grade level (K -8) at St. Paul. These can be requested through the school office.
Our curriculum consists of:
Religion: Bible study, practical experiences in Christian Living and Memory Work are included in our religion curriculum. In seventh and eighth grades students participate in the Confirmation Study Program as part of the curriculum of St. Paul. Upon successful completion of the two-year course, the student may be confirmed and become a communicant member of St. Paul Lutheran Church. Religious memory selections are an important part of the curriculum. Besides providing a solid foundation of Christian doctrine, religious memory selections serve Christians as a comfort in sorrow and reassurance in times of danger.
