Faith + Family + Future + Foundation

St. James Lutheran has been partnering with Christian families in the Lafayette area to educate and challenge young people for a life of Christian service since 1851.


At St. James, You Can Have It All

St. James Lutheran is a Preschool – 8th grade school serving Greater Lafayette area families. Our passion for education began in 1851 in a one room school house and, while much has changed, our dedication to sharing our Christian faith and love with all who walk through our doors has remained unchanged. There are many fine schools in our county, parents choose St. James because we strive to provide a strong faith basis as well as excellent academics.

A change in the Indiana law means 90% of families now qualify for a Choice Scholarship!
