Trinity Lutheran School - Educating for Eternity  

Trinity Lutheran students

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran School exists to strengthen families in their love for God and his Word and to educate young people for faithful, capable, and intelligent citizenship in today's world.

We serve students from preschool through 8th grade and are fully accredited by the state of South Dakota.
Trinity Lutheran School is one of the most affordable private schools in northeast South Dakota while at the same time being part of one of the largest private school systems in the nation. As a Wisconsin Synod Lutheran elementary school, Trinity
offers benefits shared by many private schools. With a K-8 student body size of around 50 students, your child will not get lost in the crowd and will have the opportunity to participate in several extracurricular activities. Parents and teachers work together as partners, and teachers commit themselves fully to the school's mission.
