Parent Information

“Train a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not turn from it.”
(Proverbs 22:6)

Our Zion Lutheran School mission is “Educating for Eternity.” Our goal is to meet the needs of the whole child – spiritual, intellectual, social, physical, and emotional. Jesus Christ permeates every aspect of the school’s instruction and work. We have the obligation and the privilege of presenting the truths of the Holy Scripture to each student.

Parents are the first teachers of their children and we work with them to instill Christian ideals and principals. Our teachers are assistants to, and not substitutes for, the child’s parent. Together we will work to help each child fulfill God’s vision for their future.

Preschool hours are from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. Three year old students attend on Tuesday and Thursday. Four and five year old students attend Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Students in Kindergarten through 8th grade have classes from 8:20 am to 3:30 pm on Monday through Friday.

Zion School is supported by the entire membership of Zion Lutheran Church through reguar and generous gifts that are prompted by a Christian’s desire to carry out the will of the Savior. To supplement this support, families whose children attend our school pay a tuition fee.This fee is reviewed annually by the School Board and is based on the annual cost per pupil. Tuition Fees are included in the Parent Information category in the Handbook. In addition to tuition, a registration fee and activity fee is assessed for each student to help defray the cost of books, supplies, field trips, and other services.

Zion 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. Zion Lutheran School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school administered programs.
