About Pilgrim Lutheran School
Welcome to Pilgrim Lutheran School
At Pilgrim we believe the most effective school environment is the unified effort of family, church and school. Pilgrim is a special place where we blend faith, learning, and character discipline by nurturing children spiritually, intellectually, and physically.
With 245 students in Early Childhood through eighth grade, Pilgrim’s people are passionate and curious, whether they are the students who sit together in class or Chapel, or they are the teachers, instructors and coaches who inspire our students each day to fulfill their greatest potential.
Pilgrim’s stage is set for every student’s exploration and joyful personal development; our goal is that each child becomes all they were created to be as Christian citizens and leaders in their communities and the world.
Welcome to an amazing educational experience full of invigorating challenges, nurturing personal relationships and every student’s growing sense of confidence and passion for the Lord. Welcome to Pilgrim Lutheran School!
