Students in the Lower School receive daily instruction in each of our Core Subjects: Christian Education, Reading, Language Arts which includes spelling, writing, and grammar, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Each subject is taught from a Biblical world-view. Students learn how to apply God’s word in all areas.
Our Lower School Faculty is comprised of highly qualified degreed teachers who specialize in their fields, with many years of teaching experience. They are all active in their Christian Faith and serve as role models for their students. They are committed to teaching their students in a loving and nurturing environment.
We believe in a well-rounded education. Along with their Core subjects, the Lower School students enjoy six “specials” during the week: Art, Computer Lab, Library, Music, Physical Education, and Spanish. The special area classes are once a week and are taught by teachers specially trained in their particular area.
Lower School students at TLCS also enjoy the Accelerated Reader program, IXL Math, Science Explorers Club (a once a week after-school program with separate fee) and soccer teams for their age range.

Lower School Christian Education Classes
Trinity Lutheran Christian School uses the Association of Christian Schools International Bible Curriculum. This Bible series focuses on the Foundational teachings from the Bible about the nature and character of God, the qualities of His people, and His church. Students are given an overview of the Bible, with an emphasis on God’s attributes, biblical characters, the early church, and what it means to know Jesus Christ and live for Him.
Teachers’ Morning Daily Devotions
Every morning, the Lower School Director and staff meet for a short devotional and prayer time. The staff takes turns leading the devotional and then there is a time of prayer for special requests and for the staff and families of our school.
