Mt. Olive Lutheran School

Mt. Olive Lutheran School and Preschool has been offering a private-based, Lutheran education in Delano for more than 50 years. Mt. Olive Preschool is state-licensed and offers a variety of schedule options. Mt. Olive School, K-8, is fully accredited through Minnesota Nonpublic School Accreditation Association (MNSAA).

The staff of Mt. Olive is dedicated to providing excellent educational services to children and their parents, so that each child can take their place in society as the salt of the earth.

A talented faculty serves children in preschool through eighth grade in a loving, yet disciplined culture. A teacher-to-student ratio of approximately 1-to-12 allows teachers to give each student the attention they so richly deserve and need, all within a safe environment and family atmosphere. 

In addition to instruction from the Bible, Mt. Olive’s high academic standards are passed onto students in each class, through access to the latest technology and exposure to the arts. Students also have opportunities to participate in athletics, choir, forensics, and scholastic competitions throughout the school year.
