The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod has a long history of meeting the educational and spiritual needs of deaf and hard of hearing children and adults worldwide. The Michigan District has been a leader in this effort. Highlights include the renown Lutheran School for the Deaf in Detroit, and Our Savior Lutheran Church of the Deaf, one of the Synod's oldest congregations.
"For the Lord will not forsake His people; He will not abandon His heritage."
A new private day school for the deaf, St. Martin Lutheran School for the Deaf (22425 Morley Ave. Dearborn, MI 48124), is now open.
St. Martin’s will provide an bilingual ASL and English environment with a partner hearing school, Emmanuel Lutheran School. St. Martin will provide a comprehensive educational program which fosters each student’s growth in knowledge, attitude and skills with a small classroom size and special focus on each child’s needs of sign language and total access to education.
