Benefits of Choosing St. Michael Lutheran School
Our Students Perform Above the 90th Percentile
St. Michael Lutheran School of Portage is a state-approved private school, offering grades Preschool through Eighth, all taught by certified teachers. Our school is accredited by three separate accrediting bodies, including National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA).
The school prides itself on offering a Christian-centered, quality academic program. As an example, recent standardized test scores found our First Graders' overall performance well above the 90th percentile in reading, math, science, and social studies, with most year-end Kindergarteners reading proficiently. Our school was named #2 among Michigan District Lutheran Schools who administered the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
We Offer Affordable Tuition and TADS Tuition Assistance
St. Michael Lutheran School is able to offer some tuition assistance to qualifying families in grades Kindergarten through 8. The amount of tuition assistance available varies from year to year because all tuition assistance money is generated annually from many special events as well as generous donations of individuals. We use the services of TADS, a national company which specializes in analyzing financial need.
This company reviews applications and supporting financial records and gives recommendations regarding a family's ability to pay. The tuition assistance committee tries to honor those recommendations as funds allow.
We are the only Christian school located in Portage that is able to offer this type of assistance.
