Rooted in the past.
Inspired by the future.
In 1837, St. Paul’s Lutheran School was established at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne, making it now the oldest, continuously operating elementary school—public or private—in Indiana. Other churches and schools followed suit, building the rich tradition of Christ-centered education that continues to this day in our region’s Lutheran schools.
Today, these schools and early childhood programs are represented and supported by The Lutheran Schools Partnership (TLSP). TLSP is not a school system. Rather, we are a resource that supports the missions and goals of our regional Lutheran Schools, brings them together under a common purpose, and connects them with the community at large.
While many of our schools are more than 100 years old, with our help, they continue to grow and evolve to meet the educational needs of students in the 21st century. At TLSP, we work hard to ensure the tradition of a Lutheran education continues to inspire students and families for many generations to come.
