Here We Stand, On This Rock


Trinity Lutheran School (TLS) is a unique Christian community with a rich history, steeped in tradition with an unwavering faith in Jesus Christ.  Generations have contributed to TLS in remarkable ways and will continue for generations to come. TLS is led by a Spirit-filled Pastor and Congregation that encourage us to uphold God’s standards for living, not the world’s.  Here we stand, and we beseech you to stand with us.

As a Christian school ministry, the TLS community as a whole is called to higher standards in word and conduct.  TLS educators are called to exceedingly higher standards in glorifying the Lord through spiritual preparation, conduct, communications, and in the delivery of the Word of God in academics. TLS offers a classical Christian education and a whole lot more!

At Trinity we believe in the power of three in one, the Father, Son, Holy Spirit. We know the Holy Trinity is with us. We see parents as primary spiritual educators, but we serve as a team of parents, students and teachers in the Body of Christ. This special strand of three in one is not easily broken. Here We Stand.


We are evangelical and Bible-based, providing programs that nurture and guide students to know Christ and His love for them. We show God’s love and forgiveness daily. TLS provides a setting where each child can become a fully developed Christian in all dimensions of life: spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, and creatively.

     TLS: Where faith and learning intersect.

Why Trinity Lutheran School?

Called to “Higher Standards.”

While the Christian foundation of TLS remains strong and unchanging, we strive to meet or exceed national standards for learning in dynamic ways.  Striving for excellence involves constant reflection in the ever changing world of education. We believe in researching the best educational practices bringing them together in ways that will engage students. At TLS, learning incorporates Christian Joy, and rigor.  Being part of God’s ministry, we believe school should be challenging and fun.  

Did you know?

  • Lutheran school students test 23% higher than the national average on standard achievement tests.
  • Average SAT/ACT test scores of students attending Lutheran high schools are well above the national average.  Students in Lutheran schools at every grade level, and especially in middle school and high school, have more developmental assets than students in public schools.
  • TLS students also score well above average on national testing, and our students report feeling well prepared to handle situations that may come up in the future.

If you think you can’t afford a Christian private school, think again. TLS intentionally offers affordable tuition for families who might not ever have the opportunity to attend a Christian school. Trinity Lutheran Church believes in raising up disciples of Christ so much, the church supports this school ministry and pays up to approximately half of student tuition. There are scholarship options available at this time. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14) Please contact us if you have any questions. If you would like to request information on our school program please contact the admissions office email or call the front office.  We will contact you to further explore how your child can become a part of our school family.
