Our Philosophy

Mountain View Lutheran School is committed to:
● Engaging a faculty and staff who are professionally prepared and personally sensitive to youth;
● Developing an appreciation of the worth of the individual and helping these individuals understand their own worth;
● Utilizing a variety of creative educational methodologies designed to serve student needs;
● Following a complete program which reflects the best of both traditional and contemporary standards of school excellence; and
● Providing a ministry of education within our church and community.

Further, we are a Christian school. Accordingly, this is what we believe:
● We believe that God is the Triune God and we have faith in His saving grace as confessed by the one, holy, and apostolic Church.
● We believe that the entire Bible is the divine and inspired Word of God. God is revealed in our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Holy Scriptures, and is active in our everyday lives.
● We believe that sin - separation from God through disobedience - places all people under God’s eternal judgment.
● We believe that through the redeeming death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and through Him only, the curse and threat of sin is completely removed and salvation possible.
● We believe that salvation is a gift of God offered at the initiative of His love, not based on the merit of people.
● We believe that this gift of salvation is offered to all who, by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ, receive Him as Savior and Lord.
● We believe that life is meaningful because it is a gift from God; we believe that the universe is God’s handiwork.
● We believe that Mountain View Lutheran Church and School is part of God’s church and that we, therefore, have a ministry to each other.

Further, we are a Lutheran Christian school. Accordingly, we:
● accept the historical Lutheran Confessions;
● appreciate our Lutheran heritage;
● believe in the power of forgiveness and of the Sacraments (baptism and holy communion) in interpersonal relations;
● recognize that God has called all persons to use their gifts in service to Him;
● encourage the freedom of the individual Christian, so that he/she may responsibly serve others.

Parents who are not members of Mountain View Lutheran Church or the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod are encouraged to attend the Adult Information Class, which will provide an opportunity to better understand the principles of Christianity discussed in the classroom.

Mountain View Lutheran School’s enrollment is open to all who do and would seek Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We offer equal opportunity to all students regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin to participate in programs and activities made available to students of the school.
