Our Philosophy

In a Christ-centered community, the teachers and staff of St. Martin’s Lutheran School foster spiritual and academic excellence in their students.  In keeping with our mission statement, we have developed and implemented the following philosophy:

  1. To witness that Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord.

  2. To teach, build, and practice Christian values and character.

  3. To model the love of God and respect for self and others.

  4. To teach acceptance of responsibility for one’s own actions.

  5. To provide a safe, secure, nurturing, educational, and spiritual environment.

  6. To promote academic excellence and develop a meaningful work ethic.

  7. To become responsible citizens in a global society and to actively serve the needs of our community.

  8. To teach multicultural competencies in order to prepare our students for an increasingly diverse world.

  9. To guide the development of critical thinking, problem solving, cooperation, creativity, and self-expression.

  10. To recognize and support the value, gifts, and talents of each child.

Founded in 1963, St. Martin’s Lutheran School educates students in grades PreK-3 through eighth. The school, located at the corner of Forest Drive and Spa Road in Annapolis, is home to 115 students. We accept applications for all grades on a rolling basis throughout the year, and financial aid is available for those who qualify.


St. Martin's provides Christian education in a safe, secure and inclusive environment. In addition to the four core subjects, all students take art, music, physical education, religion and Spanish. Middle school students take enrichment classes in geography, journalism, coding and personal finance.


We offer small, intimate class sizes with a focus on small-group and one-on-one instruction. Most of our graduates gain admission to and attend private high schools in the Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington metro areas.


Athletically, the school offers cross country, soccer, basketball and girls' lacrosse for students in grades 5-8. St. Martin’s offers lower school and middle school STEM, board game club, Spanish club, Disney Club, craft club and choir. Our kindness club promotes St. Martin's through service projects in the community. New extra-curricular activities are always being added.


At St. Martin’s, we are a community of teachers, learners and believers. We teach our students, we learn from each other and we believe that each child has their own God-given talents. Our school community attends chapel each Wednesday to give thanks for what we have and to pray for the world around us.


We invite you to take a tour of our campus, meet our teachers and see our students hard at work. It is there that you will see why St. Martin's students are “Learning Today & Leading Tomorrow".
