Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a parent. Over the course of nine years, elementary and middle school experiences lay the foundation for your child’s spiritual, social, academic, and professional future. In order to help you make the best decision for your child, our admissions process follows four important steps:
1. Schedule An Educational Success Consultation
An Educational Success Consultation is a complementary visit with our administrator that is designed to help us understand your family’s needs and give you a true understanding of what it means to receive a Sioux Falls Lutheran School education. No matter where you decide to enroll your child, visiting is an important first step in finding the right educational environment for your child.
2. Set Up a Shadow Day
Once you’ve completed an Educational Success Consultation, we’ll invite your child to shadow one of our students for a day. The Shadow Day gives your child a feel for what a day at SFLS looks like, and it can play an important role in your decision-making process.
3. Explore Tuition Assistance Options
At Sioux Falls Lutheran School, we recognize that finances play an important role in your family’s educational decisions. We treat tuition assistance as an extension of our ministry and strive to eliminate financial obstacles that stand between qualified children and a quality Christian education by providing up to $200,000 in scholarship assistance to qualifying families each school year. Visit our tuition assistance page to learn more about needs-based assistance, SCRIP, and other scholarships that can help cover the cost of tuition at Sioux Falls Lutheran School.
4. Submit Enrollment Forms & Deposit
If steps one through three confirm that our school is a good fit for your family, we’ll need three important pieces of paperwork and a $100 deposit to save your child’s seat. An enrollment form, a request for records form, and a tuition contract will be provided during your Educational Success Consultation, and can be dropped off in the school office or mailed to:
Sioux Falls Lutheran School
308 W. 37th St.
Sioux Falls, SD 57105

What families are saying:
“Each of my children attended kindergarten at a wonderful Christian school, but I can truly say the SFLS offered the most well-rounded kindergarten experience. The academics are strong and the co-curricular components—such as art, music, religion/faith formation, and PE—are even stronger. 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
