“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
The Philosophy of Holy Trinity Lutheran School reflects the school’s commitment to its students of all ages.
All who have been brought to faith in Jesus Christ are commissioned by Him to preserve and extend the kingdom of God. Christian education is a vital component of the congregational ministry. With the leading help of the Holy Spirit, we strive to strengthen the faith of every child.
All children are accepted as creations of God with their own talents and abilities. We strive to give all children the opportunity to develop to their full potential. Academic excellence is provided with a low student/teacher ratio, within a safe, Christian environment. Students from diverse backgrounds will be academically, spiritually, and morally equipped to meet the challenges of the future. The teachings of God and His will are not taught as one subject, but are integrated into all subjects and activities. Our qualified, dedicated, and experienced faculty is committed to providing a Christian education, which is developmentally appropriate and academically challenging, focusing on enhancing the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of all Holy Trinity students at all levels.
We recognize that the family is the primary influence in the total education of a child. It is our belief that this influence can be most effective when the home, church, and school cooperate in the education of children to the glory of God. To accomplish this, we recognize that we need God’s guidance and Spirit.
