Our Vision and Mission


A Message from Mrs. Esser:


Welcome to Sioux Falls Lutheran School—a Christ-infused community of learners, where your family is our family. SFLS students are spiritually, academically, and creatively equipped from age 3, until their 8th grade graduation day. Our main objectives: ensure students are armed with our World Ready, Faith Secure mission, an exceptional education, and prepared to excel at the next level.

We are blessed to have a close-knit family of students, parents, extended family, staff, and alumni. If you are seeking a Christ-centered school, with ideal student-to-teacher ratios, extraordinary academics, and inimitable extracurricular activities...welcome home. 

In His Service,
Mrs. Tia Esser

Mission Driven

Our mission is to develop capable, Christian servant-leaders in a complex world: World Ready, Faith Secure. We strive to carry out our mission daily by faithfully and lovingly serving God and our neighbors. It's this foundation of faith that prepares SFLS students to be World Ready, Faith Secure.

Living our Mission

Every week, the Sioux Falls Lutheran School community attends Family Chapel–gathering together to glorify our Heavenly Father. The offerings collected during Chapel support various mission workers and initiatives that work to serve and spread the Good News in our immediate community and around the globe.

During the first Friday of each month, teacher-led "families" gather for First Friday Family Fun and work together to brighten our community by creating tie blankets, baking treats, cleaning up litter, volunteering at local churches, visiting nursing homes, but most importantly, learning to serve others.  

School Verse
"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
