Christian Education

Our Mission

Enriching lives and sharing Christ through quality classical Lutheran education.


Martin Luther School was established in 1995 by the Bismarck-Mandan Lutheran School Association. The Association was formed by four Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregations in Bismarck and Mandan: Bethel, Messiah, Shepherd of the Valley, and Zion.

Christ-Centered Education

In preschool through 6th grade, our emphasis at Martin Luther School is on providing a well-rounded education in order to provide children the foundation they need for academic and personal success. We seek to provide an education that is Christ-centered and focused on academics as well as the personal growth and development of each child. Martin Luther School is dedicated to providing the highest quality Christian education. We know that what we do at Martin Luther School makes a difference in the hearts and minds of children today – children that will be leaders of tomorrow.
