Divine Peace Lutheran Church & School, located in Upper Marlboro, MD 20774, is dedicated to providing a safe family environment based on the Bible and Jesus our Savior.  As a private, parochial school, we offer small class sizes that give individualized attention. This low student to teacher ratio ensures that whether a student is gifted and looking for challenge or needs extra help,  your scholar will thrive from Kindergarten to 8th Grade.

 Built on the cornerstone of Christ, we also follow Maryland State Standards and Common Core.  Attend our Open House Dates January through April to get the full classroom experience: student interactions that are hands on, multi-age classrooms that equip leadership skills even at the elementary level.

The Church has a beautiful worship space  as well as fellowship hall to gather for events and conversation. The school has a full court gym, beautiful green spaces and playground unique to this part of D.C. near Largo, MD,  and instructors who are compassionate and rigorous.

When choosing a Christian School, it is also important to look ahead: our church synod also provides two college prep dormitory schools: Luther Prep and Michigan Lutheran Seminary. 

 We are dedicated to working with families and congregation members to keep our tuition low and affordable to our community.
