Trinity Lutheran School offers a unique program designed to foster and develop specific skills thatstudents need to become successful adults.


The Elements of Success program is woven into the Trinity curriculum and incorporated at all grade levels, from preschool through 8th grade.  These skills, combined with academic excellence, equip our students to excel in all areas of their lives.


This program began with a simple question. How do you define success? 


We asked dozens of parents to describe what they hope their children will achieve as successful adults. Parents described four goals for their children:

  • Be strong in their faith walk. 
  • Be financially independent.
  • Be part of a happy family structure.
  • Be contributing members of their community.


These answers, combined with research into the best practices of innovative and successful schools, led to the development of the Elements of Success. 

Celebrating Variety in Learning Styles

At Trinity Lutheran School, we value the uniqueness of each of our students and understand the importance of variety in teaching methods and approach. Our education inclusion strategy celebrates differences in learning styles and promotes a stronger sense of community in the classroom.

Igniting a Life-Long Love Learning

We acknowledge that students are motivated learners when the subject coincides with their natural interests. By supplementing standard curriculum with creative and innovative topics - through our music, outdoor ed, and elective programs - we seek to ignite a life-long love of learning in our students.

Clearing the Obstacles of Learning

We are dedicated to addressing the emotional and spiritual health of our students, through a variety of methods, including implementation of Christian conflict resolution curriculum, faculty training guided by licensed counselors, visits from Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry, and most importantly, regular classroom prayer time focusing on God's promises for our lives.
