School Notes:

We are so happy that you have an interest in Trinity Lutheran School. We feel that our school offers the best program in Hampton Roads for young people in Preschool to Grade 8. Our recent authorization in International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), our work with Preschool Partners, our candidacy with AdvancED (the world’s largest educational accreditation organization), our affiliation with Global Learning and Observation to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE), our work in becoming a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) school and our brain-based approaches to learning all demonstrate that our school is at the forefront in providing rigorous, values-driven approaches to educate young people and to personalize their learning. Many distinctions can be found at Trinity Lutheran School which set us apart from other schools in the area.

Our International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) authorization affords young people the ability to develop “international-mindedness.” With technology of today, the barriers that once secluded one country from other areas of the world have been lifted. Our young people must be able to understand the dynamics of other countries and the impact on their own lives. The IBPYP provides this platform. It is also designed to take learners into and beyond all realms that spell success: critical thinking, problem solving, producing and creating, humanitarianism, and leadership.

The AdvancED accreditation, which we are currently working to attain, will also bring our school in line internationally. AdvancEd serves colleges and schools in over 65 countries and across the United States. Its focus on education and achievement provides the perfect platform to show the successes of our young people. The GLOBE Program recently recognized Trinity Lutheran School’s approach to science instruction, and we hope to continue this success in the future. Our current 4-Star rating from Preschool Partners also shows our commitment to the individual and diverse talents, developmental needs, and unique characteristics that make each young person quite special at Trinity Lutheran School.

For over 50 years, Trinity Lutheran School has been educating children. This longevity demonstrates that we are a school that is truly committed to the education of young people and making a difference in the world. We are quite proud of our school, and we invite you to come and see firsthand our wonderful school’s accomplishments and dreams for the future. We are dedicated to our noble work of “Building Foundations for Life.”
