School Notes

Trinity has been providing exceptional Lutheran education in the Cedar Rapids community for over 130 years. Our objective is to provide a quality Christian education in a caring environment. To that end, we work to guide students in the following facets of their development:

  • Spiritual
  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Academic

Formal schooling is only part of a child's education. Together with you and your child, we work to contribute to your child's growth and development. Therefore, Trinity Lutheran School exists to:

  • Share the Good News of Jesus Christ by providing opportunity for children to daily study Scripture under the guidance of Christian teachers
  • Assist parents in the Lutheran education of their children, and welcome families into a community of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ
  • Encourage students to become active Christians through prayer, service, and worship
  • Emphasize excellence in academic subjects, while providing current technology, music, the arts, and physical education as an integral part of their studies.

Caring, Christian teachers who are positive role models; safe, encouraging, nurturing environment; strong academics; smaller class sizes; personal attention. Our children enjoy attending TLS and tell us that Trinity is a fun place to go to school.

Trinity has been a great learning environment for both our daughters. Class sizes are smaller and students are regularly challenged, which has helped out daughters grow faster than if they were in public school.
