Why ESM?

Prospective families identify many and varied reasons for the placement of their child in our school. Some cite excellent academics. Others value safety, programming, or the personal care they receive from our highly qualified staff. At ESM we seek to provide all these measurable components of excellence in education.

However, at ESM we hope to provide even more.

In light of questions regarding the stability, security, and morality of our nation, we need Christian leaders who confidently and consistently are able to go into the world fulfilling the great commission of Matthew 28:16-20. A Lutheran education at ESM establishes Christ firmly in the center of life and seeks to connect children and families to the grace freely offered by our loving Savior. We believe in forming partnerships with parents who desire to nurture their child’s faith while preparing them with the skills and knowledge life requires.

At ESM we set about to create an atmosphere where lessons in faith, service, and mission are lived out. It begins in the primary grades as students sing in nursing homes and create cards for those shut-in or hospitalized. Opportunities expand in our upper grades where students become after-school reading mentors for struggling students at a neighborhood elementary school.

These are just some of the ways ESM hopes to live out the goal of providing education for life and nurture faith for eternity.
