Trinity Lutheran School

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.

We are blessed to have our child at Trinity. We love that the word of God is taught every day, throughout the school day. The academics at Trinity are excellent. Trinity has provided our child with opportunities to excel in academics, sports, and other extra-curricular activities. The teachers and staff are very dedicated to the students and their roles as educators. Our child has made wonderful friends while attending Trinity.

My children have been attending Trinity since pre-K. The high quality of Trinity's faith-based, yet rigorous, curriculum, the amazing dedication of the teachers, and the loving, comfortable sense of community make Trinity Lutheran one of the best (and most important) decisions I've made for for my children. They love going to school each day and leave with a smile. Trinity provides a safe, wholesome learning environment that still always keeps God in focus. The extracurricular opportunities and PTL events are a wonderful bonus. Highly recommend!!!

I am a Trinity Alum who wouldn`t dream of sending my kids to another school. There are friendships and memories made at Trinity that have stuck with me my whole life. With Trinity you don`t just get a school, you get a whole family. My three children are currently enrolled at Trinity and I`m so thankful for the Christ-centered education they are getting. The teachers and staff are amazing!

Trinity Lutheran School has been a true blessing for our family. Our 3 children attended Trinity for the past 7 years and it has been one of the best decisions of our lives. The students receive a rigorous academic education in a Christ-centered community made up of teachers and staff that encourage the students to learn more about God and His love. My husband and I have felt so secure knowing that we are sending our children to a safe place with caring teachers who demonstrate excellence and show God's loving nature. My daughter graduated from 8th grade last year from Trinity and is now performing at the top of her freshmen class at one of the top private high schools in the Chicago suburbs. She was well prepared for the academic rigor of high school and was prepared to be a disciplined and respectful student. Most importantly, her time at Trinity Lutheran School helped her grow in her relationship with the Lord! I HIGHLY recommend Trinity Lutheran School if you are looking for a safe, diverse, academically rigorous, and Christ-centered school!

We absolutely love Trinity Lutheran! Our three children have attended this school since preschool and we cannot say enough nice things about it. From the teachers to the curriculum to the leadership, this is truly a top-notch place for education. We appreciate the care that the teachers and staff have shown our children and family. We love our Trinity family!

I am so thrilled my son has had the opportunity to learn and grow (cognitively, socially, and in his faith) at Trinity. Trinity educates the WHOLE child, with its Christ-centered atmosphere, making sure that the developmental and social needs of every child are addressed. I am an educator by career (in a public school) so I know the ins and outs of education. I am beyond happy with Trinity. Our family has experienced some changes since 3PK, and I can not imagine having my son in a more caring, nurturing environment. Each teacher communicates effectively and goes above and beyond being "just a teacher"... In a world that glorifies discord, violence, and tension, I am at peace knowing that my son is in a LOVING, accepting, place filled with Grace and Mercy. Academically, it is TOP NOTCH. I have been very happy with the rigor, and mastery of learning standards that my son has experienced. I can FULLY recommend Trinity Lutheran School!!!!!

Our experience at Trinity Lutheran over the past 3 years has been exceptional. The teachers bring out the best in every child by working with their individual strengths while creating an environment of kindness, responsibility, and leadership. The staff is very helpful and willing to go the extra mile. I am so blessed to have my son in such an amazing school and very thankful to have him learning a Christ-centered education in this world of uncertainty.
