Cross of Glory Lutheran School
and Preschool


Our Mission Statement

Cross of Glory Lutheran School is a part of the total ministry of Cross of Glory Lutheran Church. In cooperation with families, Cross of Glory Lutheran School exists to equip children with the power of God’s Word and academic excellence. We seek to produce students who are strong in God’s Word, who are prepared for life eternal, and who are able to apply their education toward serving their Savior in any walk of life.


“Our kids are thriving and love their teachers and peers! We love the small class sizes and family-like atmosphere.”

“Our greatest desire is for our children to know who they are in Christ and how that shapes all areas of life, and we have seen this shared desire among the teachers and staff at COG.”

“Teachers do not hesitate to move kids up if they are ahead or give them personal assistance in challenging areas. We feel like our kids are seen and understood and that makes this mama heart happy.”

“The teachers treat the children with such patience and kindness, while giving them a great faith based education.”

Academics

The curriculum at Cross of Glory Lutheran seeks to educate the mind and enlighten the heart through the timeless truths of God’s Word. Cross of Glory’s curricular framework is balanced and comprehensive. Its design promotes cognitive growth in all of its objectives, activities, strategies, and resources. The curriculum takes into account the wide range of cultural backgrounds and learning styles of its students, offering flexibility to remediate the struggling student while at the same time enriching the gifted learner. The Cross of Glory Lutheran student will be fully equipped with the tools needed to succeed in and out of the classroom.
