St. Andrews Lutheran School is nestled right in the heart of Park Ridge. For over 100 years, our School has been dedicated to education excellence, spiritual growth, and service to our community.
Our campus is a welcoming place for students to learn. We have a regulation sized gym, excellent outdoor play equipment, a newly renovated library and technology center, and wonderful music facilities. From iPads in our early education classes to Chromebooks for our Intermediate/Middle School students, our classrooms all have the latest in teaching technology, and we strive to help our students develop and grow to be confident in using all the gifts God has given them.
St. Andrews Lutheran School nourishes the whole child in spiritual and academic growth by partnering with families to prepare the child for Christian living as an exemplary light in God's world.
"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6

**Accredited by NLSA (National Lutheran School Accreditation) Like most accrediting processes, NLSA has established a set of rigorous national standards that demonstrate school quality. Accredited schools must establish that they conform to required standards by completing an exhaustive self-study process. Even after a school has been accredited, school leaders must organize and implement a school improvement plan that provides for ongoing improvement. NLSA Accreditation is unique because, in addition to standards that address educational quality, the school also evaluates its Christ-centered nature, based upon its defined purpose. The spiritual dimension of Lutheran schools is the defining element that sets them apart and makes them a great place to grow.
