About Us

Trinity Lutheran School provides a strong and stable Christ centered academic education.  Trinity Lutheran exists to instill a cultural and religious heritage that is both Christian and Lutheran.  Professional teachers and staff deliberately & systematically influence and guide young learners toward Christian maturity and a Christian life.  While all instruction is consciously Christ-centered and Bible based and proclaims the relevancy of the Christian faith to time and situations, we strive to provide the highest quality academic experience, with particular emphasis in reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies, all within a Christ-centered atmosphere.

Trinity Lutheran School is committed to educating the whole child, both body and soul, and providing for the student’s spiritual, moral, social, physical, emotional and intellectual growth.  Our Teachers have been certified according to State of Nebraska Standards since 1918, and the current facility was dedicated in 1964.  Trinity’s Early Childhood Pre-School & Pre-Kindergarten Program was added in 1978, followed by the Extended School Day Before & After School Program in 1995.  Our All-Day Summer Camp Program was added in 1997 and our Tender Hearts Toddler Program for 2 year olds was added in 2005.

Our school was established in November of 1881 with the birth of Trinity Lutheran Church Congregation, initially with only two pupils.  During the first ten years of the school’s existence, 202 students graduated. While our Church is located downtown at 12th & H St. our school is located at 1200 N 56th St. on our east campus location next to Lincoln Lutheran Jr/Sr High.
