School Notes

  • Zion Lutheran School of Kearney is a private, nonprofit organization, therefore it is necessary for the school to charge tuition. Various scholarships, tuition-assistance, and other tuition programs are available to help with the cost of education. The principal or administrative assistant would be more than happy to discuss the various options with you. We never want tuition to be a deterrent to those seeking a Christian education - we will work with you to make it possible for you to enroll your child.
