Zion Lutheran School is a parochial school for the children of Zion congregation and other children whose parents are interested in securing a Christian education for their children.
Zion is an accredited school through National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA)
Zion school maintains an "open door" policy. We invite all parents who are interested in enrolling their children to contact the principal for further information.
Programs provide a great opportunity to learn together as we play together.
We mainly compete against other Lutheran Schools and participate in a soccer tournament in the fall, a preseason and a postseason basketball tournament in the winter and a volleyball tournament in the spring.
Sports are open to boys and girls in the 5th-8th grades.
"In Zion Lutheran School all things are taught in the light of God's Word as Christ commands us 'To teach all nations' and 'Feed the lambs'.
Zion provides each child with knowledge, attitudes, training and conduct which are Christ- centered; to prepare the child for a life of honor and service to God and all people.".
