Why Choose a Christian Education?

"What good is it for a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?" (Mark 8:36)

Our world is changing, sometimes much faster and with much bigger consequences than we could have imagined even a few years ago. It's a tremendous blessing to be able to cling to God and His unchanging Word. A Christian school, such as St. Martin's, is able to make God's Word the foundation of all that is done and taught. As parents it is our responsibility to "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6). We want our children to grow up knowing Jesus as their Savior so that they may live a God-pleasing life on this earth and finally have eternal life in heaven.

At St. Martin's we have the privilege of providing a Christian education for over one hundred of Jesus' precious lambs, from the age of four through the 8th grade. Jesus is the focus of our grade school. Christ's love for us is at the center of the curriculum, it is the motivation for excellence, and it guides our conduct in and out of the classroom. All subject material is taught from a Christian perspective. Discipline is carried out in a God-pleasing way, with an emphasis on training children to follow Jesus in thankful living.



- St. Martin's uses up-to-date and thorough methods & materials and provides strong academic programs. With our smaller class size, our teachers are able to gi
ve more individualized instruction to the students, especially those who are experiencing difficulty as well as those who are more advanced. Our students demonstrate this advantage by regularly scoring above public school students on standardized tests.


Sports Program - St. Martin's competes in a program of interscholastic sports with other elementary schools in the Watertown area. Extracurricular sporting activities, as well as the curricular physical education program, emphasize Christian sportsmanship and develop practical life skills. We currently offer basketball for both boys and girls, girls volleyball and track programs.

Enrollment - Priority is given to members of St. Martin's Ev. Lutheran Church, members of other area WELS churches, families without a church home, and families attending other Christian churches, in that order.

If you would like to receive information about enrolling your child(ren) in the school, please call the office at (605) 886-4976, and we will be happy to mail you a pre-enrollment package.
