Trinity Lutheran School will nurture your child, both spiritually and academically, while equipping them for service in their family, church, and community. Our students graduate from Trinity well equipped as students and good citizens for high school…and beyond.
The process for applying to Trinity Lutheran School begins with a visit. We want to meet you and learn more about your academic needs and how TLS can assist you. Call the school office to set up a tour and an educational consultation with our principal: 319-362-6952, extension 1227.
Schedule a visit today and discover how TLS can be an affordable educational option for your family!
We are aware of the cost of a Christian school education, and believe it as a wise investment in your child’s future. When you visit, we will provide information about the various scholarship opportunities Trinity provides and how we structure our tuition payment plan to assist families in reaching their goal of sending their child to Trinity.
We have two separate scholarship programs. There is no fee to apply to either program, and we strongly suggest you apply to both. Both programs award scholarships based on need. The deadline for the second round is Friday, August 6, but please apply as early as possible. The forms are linked below:
- Iowa Lutheran Student Tuition Organization (ILSTO) Form (mail to the address on the form)
- Trinity Scholarship Form (drop off or mail to the school office, or scan & email)
- Trinity Scholarship Directions
Please be sure to fill out both forms completely and include the required supporting information.
Trinity Lutheran School admits students of any race, sex, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, progress, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, and athletics or other school-administered programs.
The nonpublic transportation reimbursement claim is the way by which parents of children attending a non-public school may get reimbursed for at least a part of their transportation costs. The funding for this program is appropriated by the legislature from the State of Iowa’s general fund. If you live beyond two miles from the school, you may be eligible for this significant reimbursement from the state . Pre-Kindergarten is not eligible for transportation reimbursement. Forms are sent home in October and March.
Potential Tax Savings & 529 Accounts
With recent tax law changes by the federal government, the role 529 savings plans play in education funding has been expanded. Under the new tax law, up to $10,000 per year from a 529 plan can be used for K-12 private school tuition. You may also be able to take advantage of the Iowa Tuition and Textbook Credit for each dependent child who attends a private, accredited Iowa school. Consult your tax advisor.
