Foundations is a unique, program that boldly restates the mission and educational philosophy of WELS schools and early childhood programs to the communities in which we serve. This comprehensive suite of materials was developed by the Commission on Lutheran Schools to renew our commitment to Christian education. Its purpose is to help local congregations and schools generate a rich, ongoing conversation between students, parents, and Christian educators that clearly defines the differences between Christian education and other educational models.

Crafted to meet member and non-member parents at their point of need with biblical answers to practical questions, Foundations promises to provide a perspective on their child's years of formal schooling that many parents have never considered.
