Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

The goal of Zion Lutheran School is to provide an atmosphere which encourages each child to develop himself to his greatest potential aesthetically, physically, socially, and emotionally. Zion equips each child for a life of service as Christ's disciple in an ever changing world. Christ commands us in Matthew 28:19-20 to “go and make disciples of all nations-”
God commands and promises parents in Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” We believe effective Christian education depends on the cooperation of church, school and home working together to influence a child's education.
It is our prayer that through the Word and the work of the Holy Spirit the children of Zion Lutheran School:
Will know God, especially His seeking and forgiving love in Christ
Will respond in faith and grow in Christian maturity
Will see themselves as the reconciled, redeemed children of God and members of Christ's body, the church
Will witness openly for Christ, the Savior of all people
Will participate actively in God's mission to the church and the world
Will live in Christian hope with the blessed assurance of eternal life in heaven through Jesus, our Lord
