St. Stephens Lutheran School was started in 1943 in order to offer a Christian education to the children of St. Stephens Lutheran Church.  Over the years, many changes have occurred in curriculum, personnel, and facilities ... however, the initial goal remains the same: we offer a quality, well-rounded, Christian education to the children of the congregation and to the children of the Hickory community. Mission Statement: St. Stephens Lutheran School, in partnership with parents, glorifies God by nurturing and training students to develop their God-given gifts, to excel academically, and to live their faith with others.We teach the "whole" child at St. Stephens Lutheran School, providing opportunities for academic, emotional, social, and physical growth within a Christ-centered learning atmosphere.  We are committed to shaping the lives of our students by inspiring them to express the Christian values and qualities that matter most … honesty in word and deed, kindness toward others, respect for authority and trust in God.Both teachers and parents see St. Stephens Lutheran School as an extension of their own family.  It is our desire to partner with our parents on all aspects of their children’s education.  Teachers are dedicated to their calling to instruct and nurture each precious child in wisdom, knowledge, and biblical truth in addition to the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic.St. Stephens Lutheran School is affiliated with St. Stephens Lutheran Church, a member of the Lutheran Church — Missouri Synod (LCMS).   We know that no one can put a price tag on a quality education, but we still strive to make it very affordable. In fact, parents are often surprised at just how reasonable the cost is to attend our school. We also offer payment plans and tuition assistance to make it even easier.But what do you get for your hard-earned dollars? You get something that can’t be measured in money. We provide your child with the opportunity to reach his or her full potential in a safe, caring environment where faith and academic achievement are nurtured and celebrated.In the final analysis, the value of the educational experience realized through St. Stephens Lutheran School is measured in your child's success, now and in the future. Moreover, we endeavor to ensure that money never interferes with your desire to give your child the gift of a lifetime, an excellent Christian education that prepares him or her for life in the world today, as well as life eternal.  The true value of the outstanding well-rounded education available through St. Stephens Lutheran School will be measured in more-promising tomorrows.
