Elementary Academics

At Trinity Lutheran Elementary School, our goal is to prepare your child with a Christ-centered worldview while maintaining a challenging academic curriculum.

Our specially trained teachers intentionally integrate faith into each of the subjects they teach. Using similar resources that may be found in public education, Trinity teaches how to understand the information of the world through the filter of Christ-centered Absolute Truth.

Incorporating the 6 C’s: Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Citizenship, and Christian Character. These are necessary skills for success and effectiveness for the future graduates and leaders.

Research has proven that having a firm understanding of basic essential skills is necessary to achieve educational success in higher academic learning.

“Young children learn best when the environment and teaching strategies are solidly predictable with elements of creativity and exploration are woven into each day.”
