“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” (Isaiah 61:3)


Welcome! As you explore our website we hope you will grow to understand the heart and foundation of First Lutheran Classical School, our core values, and the value and impact of a classical and Christian education on your child’s future.



  • First Lutheran Classical School was founded in 2009 with a mission of serving Missoula area families by offering a distinct option in elementary education. The classical model was chosen because it provides a framework for achieving academic excellence in a loving, Gospel-centered environment.


  • Many families may be unfamiliar with classical education, but it is actually a return to the most time-proven educational method in history. Classical Christian schools are growing all across the country because families are seeing their exceptional results and benefits.


  • We believe that the method and content of teaching matters. We know that students can succeed in a culture of excellence. We believe that cultivating virtuous character and seeking truth and wisdom in all matters is crucial.


  • If these thoughts resonate with you, take a look at First Lutheran Classical School. We take seriously our role in developing the mind, body, spirit, and character of today’s students and tomorrow’s leaders.

Classical education does not abandon the past as irrelevant as some do today. Neither does it abandon the future for a nostalgic past. Classical education provides a bridge from past to present to future.
