Trinity Lutheran School is a socially, economically, racially diverse and accredited co-educational day school in Newport News, Virginia, serving students from preschool through grade 8.
Established in 1960, Trinity provides a challenging and comprehensive education within a Christian environment.
Founded on February 1, 1960 by Pastor and Mrs. Elmer Bosserman of Trinity Lutheran Church, the school has grown from the original kindergarten and first grade classrooms into its present-day campus. Our facilities include a three-story building for preschool through eighth grade, a beautiful library, a technology lab, a science lab, and a social hall/cafeteria. Expansions in recent years have included a renovated gymnasium, a technology lab, an outdoor classroom, an updated playground, and the addition of spacious classrooms and resource rooms.
Trinity students use traditional learning resources and develop technology management skills at every grade level. Students learn about God’s love and about the value of serving others. They attend chapel service each week, and regularly participate in school and community service projects. They participate in beyond-the-classroom learning experiences such as study abroad opportunities and our Outdoor Education program.
Our dedicated, talented educators are committed to every child’s academic success. In 2015, TLS was one of 50 private schools from across the country to win the prestigious Blue Ribbon award from the U.S. Department of Education. This award indicates academic achievement levels at or above the 85th percentile in both reading and math.
