St. Paul Lutheran is accredited by the NLSA, or National Lutheran Schools Association, and is non-public State of Louisiana approved.
 
At St. Paul, we believe that Lutheran education is "Christian" in the finest sense of the word because of its continual focus on God's saving grace in Christ as revealed in the Bible. A Christian education at St. Paul Lutheran School supports, supplements, and compliments the religious training of the Christian home more. Its express purpose is to prepare children for life in this world as they acquire skills through an academic education which meets the highest standards of accreditation of the State of Louisiana and the Lutheran Church. At the same time, our students are prepared for the life of the world to come as they grow in their knowledge of Christ and see themselves as included in His saving work through the study of Biblical materials consistent with the official teachings of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
 
This knowledge gives them the motivation to dedicate their developing skills to a life of loving service to God and man. We believe that the most successful agency in leading children to a vital Christian life, after the Christian home, is the Christian school, where every subject is taught and every activity carried out within the framework of the redemptive love of Christ.
