ACCREDITATION

St. Paul Lutheran School is an accredited elementary school in New York State.  The course of study meets or exceeds that of the state and is designed to prepare our students for the local public middle school.  All of our elementary teachers are permanently certified by the state and all have earned master’s degrees.

We respect the public school system for the work they do.  St. Paul Lutheran School does not exist in opposition to the public school system, but for the purpose of supplying the Christian education, which the public school by its very nature, is unable to provide.

TUITION

St. Paul Lutheran School is an outreach ministry of St. Paul Lutheran Church and as such is supported in part by the contributions of the congregation’s members.  Generous contributions of individual members of St. Paul have made possible a tuition assistance fund, the product of grants and donations. 

Tuition is charged of all student families with lower rates charged to members of the congregation.  it is assumed that congregational members support the ministry of the church by their gifts and offerings and therefore should enjoy a reduced tuition rate. 

 

TUITION ASSISTANCE

Tuition Assistance applications are available online or at the school office.  Forms should be submitted along with your registration form as early as possible, since funds are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.  The Tuition Assistance funding is provided by individual donors and by fundraising done throughout the prior school year.  Please click here to download a copy of the Tuition Assistance Application.
