Cross of Hope School Mission Statement

Cross of Hope School is a welcoming Christ-centered community providing high quality education in a nurturing environment that respects each child’s development.

We are an educational ministry of Cross of Hope Lutheran Church (ELCA).  Our Lutheran roots are deeply grounded in the tradition of quality education.  Our 5 Star Licensed and Accredited Preschool began in 1986 and our Elementary School opened in 2004.  We merged to become one school in 2020.  We embrace and encourage everyone, wherever they are, on their journey of faith.
