SOAR with the EAGLES!

We would love to serve your family.

At St. John’s Lutheran School, students are reminded daily that their true identity is as a child of God. St. John’s promotes the rich traditions of Lutheran education – faith formation combined with academic rigor. We develop servants for the Kingdom, priding ourselves on providing leadership opportunities for students in worship, in the classroom, and in service to others. We’re large enough to provide many different opportunities for you to explore, yet small enough that each child is treated as a unique individual. Together with your church and family, we help students grow in faith, develop strengths and meet the challenge of new opportunities.

Registration for the following school year generally begins in February. Applications will be processed in the order that they are received.

St. John’s Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs.

Contact us to schedule a visit, learn about tuition assistance or receive help with the application process. Contact Principal Wudtke at or call 217-234-4911.

Please see the preschool, elementary and middle school pages for specific information about these grade levels.
