What families have to say about Salem…..
“Sending my kids to Salem has been one of the best decisions I have made in a long time.”
“Salem not only grows my child’s knowledge, providing an excellent education – Salem also grows my family’s faith”
“As an alumni of Salem myself, I couldn’t imagine sending my children anywhere else. The focus of every staff member around creating a Christian environment as well as educating the students has always been amazing. I was excited to learn about the 2 and 3 year old preschool program and began sending my son there when he was 2. Not only is he learning the basics but doing so in a Christian environment. He comes home every day with a huge smile on his face while singing songs he learned at school that day. Can’t say enough about the wonderful opportunity at Salem!”

To be eligible for enrollment in Salem Lutheran School a Kindergarten child must have reached their fifth birthday before August 1. Children desiring to enter Grade One must be six years old before August 1. A screening test may be done in order to best meet the needs of the child. The principal, with the School Board’s approval, determines applications and placement.
When a child enters school for the first time, an official birth certificate issued by the Bureau of Vital Statistics must be presented. Baptismal and hospital certificates will not be accepted. Divorced parents must provide a copy of the dissolution decree that states custody rights. When a child transfers from another school a form must be signed by the parents to release records from the previous school attended. An enrollment form providing information for the permanent record, including health and vaccination records, shall be filled out for each child enrolled. Enrollment is not considered complete until all paperwork and fees are received. Students with incomplete enrollment may not attend classes until enrollment is complete, or acceptable arrangements are made. Our school staff is happy to help you through this process.
All students, Preschool through Grade 8, must meet the state requirements for immunizations appropriate to their age by the first day of school. STATE LAW REQUIRES EVERY CHILD ATTENDING SCHOOL TO BE IMMUNIZED PROPERLY, and a health form must be updated for all enrolling or re-enrolling applicants each year. Students not in compliance with this state law by the first day of school will be excluded from attending.
