Students at West Portal Lutheran School will be transformed by the gospel and confident in their God-given design for a purposeful life of learning, service, and leadership for the glory of God in our community and beyond.
West Portal Lutheran School is dedicated to educating and nurturing students as a whole in their faith and character development, social-emotional growth, and academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment.
LOVE (1 Corinthians 13:4) “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast.”
Love is the foundation for how we engage others. We love others in the belief that each person has value, worth, and dignity.
GRACE (Romans 5:2) “Through [Jesus] we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
Grace says that we are accepted in Christ despite our imperfections. Because of grace, we accept others just as Christ accepts us.
INTEGRITY (Psalm 26:11) “But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity; redeem me, and be gracious to me.”
We strive to do the right things at all times because we want to honor Christ in all that we do. We are honest, authentic, and driven by a clear moral compass rooted in God’s Word.
RESPECT (Philippians 2:3) “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”
Our community is a place where each person is heard and valued as being made in God’s image. We listen to each other, acknowledge each other’s differences and points of view, and we work through those differences with calmness and civility.
