Our Mission is to provide a quality Christian education in a loving Christ-centered environment.  When children are a part of Zion Lutheran School, they are part of a caring family where they will learn and grow both academically and in their faith.  We recognize that each child is unique and has gifts and interests that will enhance our school family. Our small class sizes contribute to a close relationship between students, teachers, and parents.  Zion Lutheran School is fully accredited nationally through the National Lutheran School Accreditation program of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod with an “EXCELLENT” rating.  Zion also holds accreditations through the Texas Association of Non-Public Schools (TANS) and the Lutheran School Accreditation Commission of the Texas District of the LCMS.  Zion is culturally diverse and admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at school.
