Trinity Lutheran School exists to challenge and enable young people to grow in both Christian spirit and academic wisdom, and to prepare them to be witnesses in God’s kingdom.
Within our Christian day school, the staff, students and visitors should always strive to be a Christian influence on others.
We should reflect an attitude of Christian concern for the building and strengthening of each other as members of the family of Christ. Trinity Evangelical Lutheran School 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 the school.
It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin in administration of its employment or educational policies, admission policies, athletic and school administered programs.
Preference is given in employment to those of the same denomination and doctrinal beliefs as the genre of the church and school.
A Christian philosophy of education concerns itself with the ultimate nature of things - with the origin, extent and purpose of knowledge, with values and conduct.
A Christian philosophy is based on divine revelation - God's Word - as the primary source of truth.
The mission of the Lutheran school is pleasing to God, and God promises that through His Holy Spirit He will accomplish that which is pleasing to Him. Rich blessings follow as the Holy Spirit lives in our hearts.
