St. John’s absorbed over 30 students from the school that was destroyed by the Moore tornado. The students were subsidized by a generous grant from the Missouri Synod. That grant will be expiring and the school looks to the power and potential of the Opportunity Scholarship Fund to allow these students to continue at St. John’s.
From the school website:
“Our Christian school began in 1997 with a handful of children … and a big dream. We didn’t have a school building. We didn’t have a gym. We simply made things work around small tables in the church fellowship hall. Our enrollment grew – and so did our school with the addition of the new building two years later. We are now is an accredited private school and licensed Child Development Center that serves more than a hundred children in our community. We offer a professional teaching staff, along with many spiritual and educational enrichments such as chapel, music, computer labs, art, library and physical education. We are blessed at to have MANY, MANY supporters from our church and community. How we grow depends largely on how well we are supported by others who share our mission of offering a Christ-centered education.”
