Welcome to the Trinity Lutheran School, Lincoln, Nebraska website.  As you browse through the various links connected to this site, you will see why Trinity Lutheran School has earned its outstanding reputation for providing children with a high level of competencies in all subject areas that far exceeds the basic requirements and minimal expectations in most school settings.

We are fully accredited by the National Lutheran Schools Accreditation commission.  We are also approved by the Nebraska State Department of Education.  Our teachers are all highly qualified and meet certification standards for the State of Nebraska.  Most of our teachers have been trained through the Concordia University system.  The dedication and love, which comes from this staff shows in every area of our instructional and social programs – making Trinity Lutheran School a respected and nurturing environment from which children learn and grow into leaders.

We have the great pleasure and honor of emphasizing Christian teachings and activities that develop in our students, a strong, secure, and independent child who knows the importance of a faith walk with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  This allows Christ’s teachings to guide them in their daily lives.

The academic program at Trinity Lutheran School concentrates on allowing children to reach their full academic potential.  We continually evaluate our educational programs and will make changes, as needed, to keep our students performing at levels above grade level expectation.

Trinity Lutheran School has been in the ministry of teaching God’s children for over 130 years! When you enter our east campus, you will see hanging in our hallway a number of certificates recognizing that fact. One of them is a “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. Another certificate shows we have been approved for national accreditation from the National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA) in recognition of a first-rate quality program of Christian education (now in two areas). Our K-5th (Kindergarten through 5th grade) program was renewed (a year ago) for the next five years as a NLSA accredited school. Our ECE (Early Childhood Education) was also approved last Spring for accreditation in the NLSA. They are working on a five year plan as a NLSA accredited Child Care. Both of these recognitions are due to many, many, many hours of work by your Teachers, Staff, School Board members, Congregational members, and Parents of Trinity Lutheran Church & School.
