For 19 years Martin Luther School has been partners in faith and education with the Bismarck-Mandan community, offering academic excellence and extending the Good News of Jesus Christ. Christian education is an excellent way to spread the Gospel and establish a solid faith foundation in our children, preparing them for an increasingly secular world. At Martin Luther, we strive to equip our students to be faithful witnesses in every aspect of their lives.
You can help Martin Luther School make an impact on the lives of young people!
