Our Mission

The mission statement of Trinity Lutheran Church and School is “Connecting People to Christ in His Word and Love.”

How We Achieve Our Mission

As a parent, you want your child to grow up in an environment where the beliefs are like your own. The world we live in offers many opportunities and just as many distractions that can lead us astray. Lutheran Schools in our area, like Trinity Lutheran, provide a setting where faith is fostered each and every day. Children learn they have alternatives to the values and lifestyles commonly displayed in popular culture. At Trinity Lutheran, students are taught to view the world through a Christian lens that guides them to live according to Biblical ideals in today’s world. Students, teachers and families speak freely about Christ at our school and are encouraged to share the Gospel.


We Partner with Your Family

The community of students, teachers and families at Trinity Lutheran feel like “family.” We take pride in relationships that go beyond the student alone and extend deeper to their family. The Lutheran Schools of Lincoln are not bound by the same structure as other schools in the area. This gives us the unique opportunity to embrace each student and their family as individuals, and to provide the personal attention, encouragement and problem solving you and your child deserve. We may have the titles of principal, teacher or coach, but our passion for being strong Christian role models and partnering with families to shape the futures of our youth through the love of God is our mission.

We Prepare Youth for Success

Students perform better academically when they are comfortable in their environment and feel they belong. Benefits like smaller class sizes, going to chapel and applying biblical teaching and guidance to difficult situations are all a part of how we provide a high quality, Christ-centered education. While each school is different and has its own curriculum, on average Trinity Lutheran School students perform at or above benchmark in regard to both district average and national norms on annual assessments (gr. 1-5). Our students also perform well on readiness assessments (Toddlers – Kindergarten).

Families who pick Trinity Lutheran School, find that their kids have more opportunities to excel academically, personally and spiritually. Trinity Lutheran School keeps a leading edge by annually evaluating curriculum, resources and educational experiences, as well as developing new ways to incorporate technology in their classrooms. Teachers truly care and do everything they can to make sure students are well-prepared to succeed in their educations and in life.

We Have Passion

Passion is such a strong emotion. It causes us to live and breathe for the things in life we care about, like our love for God and our love for our children. At Trinity Lutheran School, we share these passions with you. As students, teachers and families, we encounter Christ in everything we do and partner together to shape the futures of our young people.

Trinity Lutheran School has been in the ministry of teaching God’s children for over 135 years! We have “Certificate of Approval” from the Nebraska Department of Education. This is a year-to-year approval from the Nebraska State Board of Education. We have a number of requirements that need to be followed and approved according to the Rule # 14 state guidelines.

We have also been approved for national accreditation from the National Lutheran School Association (NLSA) in recognition of a first-rate quality program of Christian education (now in two areas). Our Early Childhood Education Program, Elementary School and Summer Camp programs are all accredited through the NLSA. The NLSA recognition is due to many hours of work by your Teachers, Staff, School Board members, Congregational members, and Parents of Trinity Lutheran Church & School.

We are so indebted to Trinity Lutheran School. Our child has been a student at Trinity from the moment she turned 18 months old, through present day (PreSchool), and we have submitted our early registration for Prekindergarten for the 2018-2019 year! While we had had a positive experience in an in-home daycare prior to her 18-month birthday, she blossomed by leaps and bounds in very short order after beginning at Trinity.

“Trinity provides the reliability a family needs when it comes to being available five days a week when a working parent needs childcare. The institution is kept accountable by accreditation boards and by licensure to ensure that your child is safe and that the institution is providing quality care. But, what makes Trinity Lutheran School truly stand out, is that well-trained, well-educated individuals are providing a loving, relationship-oriented, educational, and Christian experience for your child. Its central location is ideal for families coming from all areas of Lincoln, and provides a diverse student and family population.

Our child is growing socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and most importantly, SPIRITUALLY, as an Early Childhood Education student of Trinity Lutheran School.” Christopher and Molly Cassiday
