Anti-Discrimination Policy

St Mark Lutheran Elementary School admits students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic programs, and other school-administered programs.


The tuition for non-member students is set each year and is available from the principal. Families receive a 5% discount when tuition is paid in full prior to the start of the school year. The tuition fee for the second and third child from one family drops down by a certain amount; there is no tuition charged for the fourth and subsequent children. Tuition should be paid in full at the beginning of the school year. If this is not possible, arrangements can be made to pay on an installment basis. Contact the Board of Education before school starts if you wish to pay in installments.

Tuition students are required to attend all classes held in the school, including religion and catechism instruction. When the school children sing in church, all students are encouraged to take part. All rules of discipline apply to tuition students. In an effort to inform parents about the specific religious instruction in our school, parents are required to discuss this matter fully with the pastor and principal prior to enrollment.


A registration fee is required of all students each year, payable at the end of July unless other arrangements have been made with the Board of Education.  The fee is set annually and  includes, but is not limited to, the following: Art supplies, science supplies, physical education equipment, library books, activities, field trips, copier paper and supplies, and other consumable items. In addition, each child in grades 2-8 needs their own copy of the Bible (New International Version) and Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal. The students in confirmation instruction will need to purchase a Catechism. These required books can be ordered through the school.
