Over many decades, Trinity Lutheran Christian School students have flourished, largely because of the strong focus on academic excellence and an ongoing commitment to monitor and maintain the vitality of a challenging curriculum. The school has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Using these nationwide standards helps to ensure that students receive a first-rate education and preparation for future success.
All teachers are certified in their teaching area by Oregon State Standards and Practices and regularly attend classes, workshops and on-site inservice sessions to enhance their teaching proficiency.
At the heart of Trinity’s curriculum is the belief that all academic pursuits, as all human endeavors, reach their highest meaning and purpose in the service of others to the glory of God.
