Homeschool Admissions 

At Sioux Falls Lutheran School, our mission is to develop capable, Christian servant-leaders in a complex world who are World Ready and Faith Secure. We encourage homeschool families who are interested in our academic or extracurricular programming to prayerfully consider full-time enrollment at Sioux Falls Lutheran School. 

In our experience, full-time enrollment helps ensure that your child experiences the true Sioux Falls Lutheran School Difference, which extends beyond academics and extracurriculars to include weekly chapel services, social and emotional skill development through the study of conflict resolution strategies, collaborative class work that extend across subject areas, service projects with family groups comprised of students in different grades, the formation of lifelong friendships, and so much more. 

Ultimately, full-time enrollment allows us to serve the needs of the whole child while preparing students for lifelong learning in a world where creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills are among the most valued by employers. Our educational approach also makes an eternal difference in the lives of our students as we partner with parents and the church to help children develop the skills they’ll need to serve God and the world, with strength of character and purpose, knowing that they are loved and saved by Christ, forgiven by God, and heirs to His Kingdom. 

While full-time enrollment has proven to be the most beneficial to the homeschool families we’ve worked with, families who choose to participate part-time at Sioux Falls Lutheran School may partake in the following athletics or music ensembles: 

  • Girls Volleyball - Fall (grades 5-8)

  • Boys Flag Football - Fall (grades 5-8)

Applying for Admission

The first step in pursuing full-time enrollment at Sioux Falls Lutheran School is scheduling an Educational Success Consultation. The complimentary visit with our administrator, Mrs. Tia Esser, is designed to help us understand your family’s needs, to give you a true understanding of what it means to receive a Sioux Falls Lutheran School education, and to discover ways in which we can best serve you. It also provides opportunities to meet teachers and tour our facility. 

Please contact our admissions director, Mrs. Megan Baedke, at 605-335-1923 to start the conversation!

What Families are Saying:

“Each of my children attended kindergarten at a wonderful Christian school, but I can truly say that SFLS offers the most well-rounded kindergarten experience. The academics are excellent and the co-curricular components—such as art, music, religion/faith formation, and PE—are the perfect compliment. SFLS offers a challenging, yet nurturing, well-rounded approach to education and the growth of the entire child. We love the holistic approach it takes.”
Rebecca, SFLS Parent

–Brian, SFLS Parent

"We love Sioux Falls Lutheran School. It is a home with a family-friendly atmosphere. All the teachers know my children–even the ones that have graduated."
