About Our School

Shepherd of the Lakes is dedicated to offering exemplary education for children as young as 33 months and all the way through eighth grade. Preschoolers may attend two, three, or five days a week. SOTL has a five-day-a-week prekindergarten class for older four-year-old students and young fives. We offer half-day and full-day kindergarten. Students enrolled in the half-day kindergarten program have the opportunity to transition to the full-day program at the end of each quarter. There are limited half-day kindergarten spots. Extended care is available from 7:30am until 8:45am and then again from 11:30am to 6:00pm.

We are fully accredited by the National Lutheran School Association. Our teachers are certified with more than two centuries of combined experience.
