About Oak Grove
116 Years of Faith-Based Education…and counting!
Oak Grove Lutheran School provides a faith-based, Christian education for students from age 3 through grade 12 on two campuses in Fargo, North Dakota. The school, continuously accredited for nearly 100 years, emphasizes a mission focused on academics, faith and service.
The school started in 1906 as the Oak Grove Lutheran Ladies Seminary on the site of today’s North Campus. Boys joined the student body in 1926. More information on the school’s history is available on our history page.
The high school and middle school divisions, located on the historic North Campus, enroll students in grades 6-12. Faculty teach classes in the humanities, arts, social sciences, physical sciences, Christian studies, wellness, languages and business for students in grades 6-12. Extracurricular and co-curricular activities are held in the Scheels Center for the Performing Arts and the Gorder Gymnasium on the North Campus. Oak Grove limits enrollment to 60 students per grade on the North Campus.
