“Our family has been attending Gloria Dei for the last five years and we are very pleased. We have one graduate who is doing extremely well and was more than prepared for high school. The class sizes are small and there’s a lot of individual attention for the students. The teachers are there because of their love of teaching and their desire to spread Christ’s love to their students. We are very happy with Gloria Dei and welcome new families!”

From Our Parents
“This school is excellent. The small class sizes are great. The kids learn so much. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Even though we are not Lutheran my child learned so much about the Bible and Christianity that also applies to Catholics. My child loves learning about Jesus and loves school. Gloria Dei has the smallest class sizes in the area and great teachers. They have track, basketball, bowling, tutoring and more!”
