History, Mission and Vision of FLS

Faribault Lutheran School Mission: Empower and equip all students for Christian discipleship and academic success in serving others for Christ and His church.

Welcome to Faribault Lutheran School

Welcome to Faribault Lutheran School, where faith, academic excellence, and personal growth come together to shape the leaders of tomorrow.

At Faribault Lutheran School we are dedicated to nurturing the spiritual and academic growth of our students. Our mission is to develop young minds with strong faith and prepare them for a future world where knowledge, values, and character matter.

For over 135 years, we’ve been serving the educational needs of Faribault and its communities. Our journey began with Trinity Lutheran Church and Trinity Lutheran School in 1885, continued in 1948 at Peace Lutheran Church and Peace Lutheran School and in 1996, these two schools united to form Faribault Lutheran School. Throughout the years, our commitment to faith-based education and academic excellence has remained unwavering, enriching the lives of generations of students and their families.

Our Faith-Based Foundation

We firmly believe that a solid spiritual foundation is essential for a well-rounded education. At Faribault Lutheran School, we strive to instill in our students a deep and unwavering faith in Jesus Christ. Our faith-based academics, weekly chapel services, and religious studies curriculum create an environment where students can grow in their understanding of God’s love and teachings.

Small Class Sizes, Big Opportunities

With small class sizes, we provide a unique, family-like atmosphere that fosters individualized attention and close relationships between teachers, students, and families. This approach allows us to understand each student’s unique strengths and challenges and tailor our educational approach to their needs.

Academic Excellence

Our commitment to academic excellence is unwavering. We offer a well-rounded curriculum that challenges students to reach their highest potential. Our dedicated and experienced educators provide a supportive and engaging learning environment that prepares students for academic success and intellectual curiosity.

Educating the Whole Child

At Faribault Lutheran School, we are dedicated to educating the whole child. We understand that a complete education encompasses not only academic excellence but also social, emotional, and physical development. Through extracurricular activities, character education, and a focus on building strong interpersonal skills, we help our students grow into well-rounded individuals. We actively engage and collaborate with parents through every aspect of your child’s faith and educational journey at FLS.  

Preparing for the Future

Our students are not just academically prepared; they are also spiritually prepared to face the challenges of an ever-changing world. We equip our students with a strong moral compass, critical thinking skills, and a deep sense of purpose to their role in God’s Kingdom. We foster an understanding of God’s love and grace in their daily lives. They graduate ready to make a positive impact in their communities and the world.

Faribault Lutheran School is a place where faith and education come together to empower students to become responsible, compassionate, and successful individuals. We embrace students of all backgrounds and beliefs, making our school a welcoming and inclusive place for every child, regardless of their religion. We invite you to explore our school, meet our dedicated staff, and experience the warm and nurturing community that defines us. We look forward to partnering with you in the educational journey of your child, where the love of Jesus and academic excellence pave the way to a brighter future.
