Interested students can register in the office Monday through Thursday from 12-2pm. No appointment is necessary. Students register on a first-come, first-served basis. Our office is located in the basement of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. Simply enter the church building and head downstairs to find the school!

New students should plan to spend 90 minutes to two hours at registration. If they need interpretation, we encourage them to bring a friend or family member with who can help. Our school does not have childcare. 

Please call us with any questions at 612.874.9963.
