Seven kindergarten students sit in front of a marquee for St. Paul Lutheran School. There are four boys and three girls.

St. Paul Lutheran School feels it’s an honor to instruct and guide our little learners, setting the stage for a deeper love of learning. Our program is built around key academic areas: listening skills, auditory discrimination, visual discrimination, simple math concepts, alphabet recognition, short and long vowel sound recognition, letter blending, and reading words and sentences. We also strive to foster positive emotional, social, physical, and spiritual growth. These building blocks are designed to help students succeed in academics and life. 

Students are exposed to a wide variety of topics with opportunities for hands-on learning throughout the year. Exposure to various skills stimulates learning and creates a desire to learn even more, setting the stage for the coming educational years. In addition to classroom learning, students have the opportunity to participate in concerts, special presentations, holiday activities, and field trips. Off-campus field trips typically include the pumpkin patch, apple orchard, KC Zoo, Kaleidoscope/ Wonderscope, and Legoland. On-campus activities typically include holiday activities, a fire truck visit, a Sagasu presentation, and several guest speakers throughout the year.

We understand the importance of schedules and consistency, and the delicate balance this can be for families. Our early education and kindergarten program runs 8:00 am – 3:30 pm and follows the same academic calendar as our elementary and middle school programs. Our academic calendar very closely emulates those of our surrounding districts of 453 Leavenworth, 207 Fort Leavenworth, and 469 Lansing. You can download our calendar for the school year on our Parent page.
