About St. Paul Lutheran School on Dorchester

St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church and School are a staple in the Greater Grand Crossing Area, with over 128 years of service to the community, providing ministry, education and support. St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran School offers a rigorous curriculum. The small class size allows for small group instruction that targets students’ ability to succeed. Faith-based education guides students through a journey of human development towards God’s objective for man.

The majority of students meet or exceed national norms on the Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP) exam and 100% of students are accepted into high achieving parochial, public, or charter schools.
