Middle School Student Support

St. Croix Lutheran Middle School students learning in classThe middle school years are tender, and students are confronted with many social pressures. We understand the issues facing middle school students and offer individual attention and in-depth instruction — all in the context of a Christian foundation — to give our children the confidence they need to navigate the world.

Learning Resource Center

The Learning Resource Center (“LRC”) at SCL is designed to better meet the learning needs of students and their families who desire a Christian education at SCL. With the increasing diversity of learning needs of our present student body, as well as looking towards our future, the LRC provides much needed support for families and teachers, aiding students with learning needs to experience success at SCL.

Lorna Kapanke serves as SCL's Learning Coordinator. Mrs. Kapanke works with middle school Principal Wendland, the guidance department, and class advisors to identify students who need the support of this program. She will meet with the families to discuss their student’s specific needs. “Staffings” for these students will occur with teachers and families prior to the beginning of the school year so that success can begin from day one!

If you have a student who might benefit from this program, or have questions about what SCL offers, Mrs. Kapanke welcomes the opportunity to talk with you. You can contact Mrs. Kapanke via email or call (651) 455-1521, ext. 117. 

" Excellent school offering so many opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, all in a very caring, Christian environment. My daughter and son both went on to Big 10 schools and were prepared academically and socially. "
