Resources for Educators

The LCMS School Ministry office provides Lutheran educational ministries with resources to assist with the mission of sharing the Gospel in schools and their communities.

Home Schooling

Homeschooling is another option for parents/guardians to consider for the education of their children, incorporating family values and religious education at home.

Starting a School

Resources are available to assist congregations who wish to expand current education ministries as well as begin new ministries.


National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) serves as the accrediting body for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod schools across the nation and abroad.
